About InnovaPrep

InnovaPrep was formed in 2009 to commercialize its new concentration and sample preparation technology developed at AlburtyLab, Inc. in collaboration with Page Applied Research LLC. The technology was developed in response to the recognized need for a macro-to-micro interface between large sample volumes from liquids, air, and surfaces – and advanced detectors which require ultra-low volumes for analysis.

The InnovaPrep technology has application with any identifier, detector, or detection method where increased sensitivity is needed. Fields of application include, but are not limited to, food, drug, and water safety; biodefense; veterinary diagnostics; and industrial and environmental monitoring.
