The company will further develop a human embryonic stem cell derived cellular model for use in a prototype biosensor developed by the Naval Research Laboratory and previously studied by the University of Georgia. Current cell sources have a limited lifespan in the field requiring frequent replacement thereby reducing the efficiency and accuracy of testing environmental toxins. ArunA is well positioned to enhance the Naval Research Laboratory's work in this area by offering a robust consistent population of human cells and expanding the capability of sensor technology.

"Effective monitoring and regulation of environmental contamination remains a major challenge of great importance for both military and civilian populations," commented David Ray, ArunA CEO. "ArunA is pleased to have an opportunity to further develop a technology that could aide national security and field combat."
