We put the power of diagnostic testing in the hands of every person

Accessible testing with fast, accurate diagnosis is the foundation for a healthy world. It’s an essential step in slowing the spread of viruses, managing everyday diseases, and effective preventive care.

It’s also one of the biggest bottlenecks in healthcare. Long waits for tests and results are much more than a nuisance—they’re a matter of life or death.

We created Detect to break through the bottleneck, starting with Covid-19. Our mission is to put the power of fast, accurate diagnostic testing in the hands of every person. To make it as routine as taking your temperature and as accessible as telemedicine. And to create a healthier world, with the help of everyone in it.

Who we are

Leading the way

Led by Dr. Jonathan Rothberg, the Detect team is redesigning the future of healthcare with the power of technology.
