Through his work in the biodefense industry, Dave and his team recognized a missing technology between bio-collection and rapid detection/identification. That link is the advancement of sample preparation and biological concentration technologies. Through internal research and development projects, The InnovaPrep Wet-foam elution process was developed to fulfill that need. InnovaPrep LLC was subsequently launched in June 2009 as a manufacturer and integrator of biological sampling and concentration systems and solutions.
