About Us

InnovaPrep®  is engaged in product development, sales, and out-licensing of a collection of novel tools for modern microbiology. InnovaPrep products provide the critical macro-to-micro interface™ between real world samples and the input volumes of modern molecular methods for analysis. InnovaPrep tools increase sensitivity and enable a faster, easier, and more efficient means of delivering the most highly concentrated sample possible for subsequent analysis.

Our 23 pending and awarded patents apply to highly efficient collection and concentration of biological particles from air, surfaces, and liquids.   InnovaPrep’s  Wet Foam Elution™ process underlies many of these patents and enables instant recovery of particles from filters, membranes, surfaces, and objects. The primary utility for these technologies is to greatly improve the way biological samples, especially dilute samples, are collected and prepared for analysis.  Specifically, these technologies allow the most advanced biological detection systems to contribute their full potential.

The InnovaPrep Wet Foam Elution™ technology was first developed for integration into advanced biodefense and biodetection systems, but it has application for any detector or analysis method where increased sensitivity is needed. Fields of application include, but are not limited to, industrial microbiology, water safety; medical and veterinary diagnostics research; metagenomic research; disease monitoring; and environmental monitoring. Our current products include the Concentrating Pipette, the LVC kit, the Bobcat Air Sampler, and the SpinCon II Air Sampler, as well as integratable forms of these instruments. All of InnovaPrep’s technologies are scalable, integratable, patent protected and available for license.

We look forward to speaking with you about how the application of InnovaPrep technologies can meet your needs and will work closely with you on adopting them into your processes. We are well-known for engaged innovative collaboration with academia, government, and industry worldwide and we welcome invitations for method development projects, grant partnering, integration projects, license arrangements, and technology partnerships.
