Company Overview

SeLux, a 4.5-year old start-up company in Boston, is building a diagnostic platform to revolutionize Infectious Disease patient care and combat the current antibiotic resistance epidemic. SeLux’s first product, a rapid antibiotic susceptibility test (AST) platform, uniquely breaks the current trade-offs between speed, cost, accuracy, and antibiotic menu breadth that plague the current generations of devices. The 30-person company closed its $25M Series B financing in March ’18 and is on track to obtain FDA clearance in 2020.
SeLux was recently awarded a milestone-based government contract from the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) worth up to $45M to build its second-generation direct-from-sterile sample identification and AST platform. By eliminating most standard microbiological culturing, this platform will enable Infectious Disease clinicians to deliver same-day personalized antibiotic therapies to septic patients and those with urinary tract infections.
