About Quanterix

Quanterix is developing a revolutionary Single Molecule Array (SiMoA(TM)) technology that allows the behavior of thousands of individual molecules to be observed simultaneously, rather than an ensemble average of many molecules as with existing technologies. Quanterix's platform will bring an unprecedented level of sensitivity, precision, and assay robustness to clinical diagnostics, drug development, and life science research. The first application that Quanterix is pursuing with the SiMoA(TM) technology is the detection and quantification of proteins present in blood and other body fluids at very low, previously undetectable, concentrations. Diagnostic assays targeting proteins that have been implicated in a variety of human diseases, including cancer, chronic inflammatory disease and neurological disorders are under development. Quanterix is a privately held company located in Cambridge, Massachusetts and is backed by leading life science investors including ARCH Venture Partners, Bain Capital Ventures, and Flagship Ventures.
