Mtech TAP Company CosmosID™ Wins Best Life Sciences Company in the Maryland Incubator Company of the Year Awards
Date:6/6/2011

inical (medical), environmental (water, soil, biofuel or food), or other research  (laboratory) samples. Cloud Sequencing™ is a single, rapid and accurate test that is universal for all types of pathogens, including bacteria, viruses, parasites, and fungi.

CosmosID™'s technology employs a proprietary approach based on fundamentals of bioinformatics and computational biology, combined with genomics, microbiology, and mathematical algorithms, and serves organizations and companies whose missions include medical diagnosis, public health (food and water safety), biosecurity, bioforensics, force protection and force health protection, according to Colwell.  

CosmosID™'s strong pipeline of government grants, as well as private funding, has fueled its product development since 2007. That pipeline includes funding from the Department of Homeland Security, the National Biodefense Analysis and Countermeasures Center (NBACC), and the Edgewood Chemical Biological Center.  

Additional TAP and VentureAccelerator finalists included:

  • OmniSpeech LLC is developing speech extraction technology for cellular and additional communications. OmniSpeech's technology solves a major problem—background noise in cell phone conversations—with cost-effective software, while current solutions require bulky, cost-intensive hardware. The company won the high tech category in the 2010 UM $75K Business Plan Competition and is currently in the VentureAccelerator program. OmniSpeech was founded by Carol Espy-Wilson, a professor in the department of electrical and computer engineering.
  • Remedium Technologies Inc. develops hemostatic (blood-clotting) technologies that stop severe bleeding more effectively and safely than existing products. Remedium won second place in the faculty and graduate student category in the 2007 UM $50K
