Our Story

Inspired by professional experiences gathered in the field of sensor development,
co-founders Tej Patel and Ryan Revilla asked the question: Why is there not a
better laboratory testing system on the market that can conduct a variety of tests at
the point-of-use?


Founded in 2013

Co-founder’s Tej Patel and Ryan Revilla thought they could improve outcomes by building an
inexpensive, point-of-use analyzer using Printed Circuit-Board (PCB) manufacturing technology. They
began to develop the very first Fluxergy prototype out of Ryan’s apartment in San Diego, California. It
was called the FluxDx1.

Initial investment round

Backed by leading tech investor

The showcase of the FluxDx1 device is what attracted the attention of Kingston Technology co-founder, John Tu.

He was impressed with the unique use of PCB manufacturing techniques used to create Fluxergy Cards and decided to make an investment into the company.

Our flagship test is developed

A novel way to test for HIV-1

Over 9 million people do not know they have HIV, globally. Additionally, millions do not have reliable access to tests that determine if anti-retroviral therapy is working effectively.

In 2015, Fluxergy started development on a novel point-of-care HIV-1 PCR assay with the goal of it bringing to resource-limited settings around the world.

Expanded technology applications

Infinite testing potential

The Fluxergy Analyzer delivers unlimited testing potential at the point-of-use.

First product launch

An entire lab in one device

After successfully testing our system with various collaborators, we are gearing up to launch our system to our Beta Program partners in veterinary health.*

Let’s make health testing accessible everywhere.
