Journalists & Analysts Who Should Attend:
Journalists and Analysts interested in and/or who cover/report on infectious diseases, pandemics, epidemics, biohazards, pathogenic threats, First Responders, Homeland Security, the military, and/or Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR), as well as those who follow or have reported on such firms as Theranos, bioMerieux, Thermo Fisher Scientific, are those most likely to appreciate the information that will be shared during ExcitePCR’s September 18th Press Conference.

Including its predecessor companies, ExcitePCR has received over $35 million since 2004 from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and other U.S. governmental entities to design, develop and produce rapid pathogen detection solutions. This foundational work has allowed ExcitePCR to produce significant breakthroughs in the world of PCR-based solutions for rapidly and accurately identifying the presence of countless biological threats anywhere in the world, including the typically time-consuming act of sample preparation, all within 30 minutes or less. ExcitePCR has now begun work to commercialize its FireflyDX technologies.

Additional Information:    
Following the Press Conference on September 18, ExcitePCR’s CEO, Lyle Probst, will participate in a prestigious, three-person Panel Discussion that afternoon about current and future advancements in pathogen detection systems hosted by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NAS). This Panel Discussion is part of a two-day, BioWatch Workshop on “Strategies for Effective Biological Detection Systems” hosted by the NAS.
