About Mesa Biotech

Mesa Biotech is bringing the superior diagnostic performance of nucleic acid amplification to the point of care, expanding availability of molecular testing beyond the centralized clinical laboratories where it is primarily performed today. Mesa Biotech’s innovative approach is based on the pioneering scientific work by its two Founders, Hong Cai, Ph.D., and Bruce Cary Ph.D., which began while they were staff scientists at Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico. LANL spun off Mesa Biotech as a private venture in 2009 and exclusively licensed its patents to the private company founded by Dr. Cai and Dr. Cary.
