Janus-I Science Inc. Mission 

Janus-I Science Inc. has a vision and a path to create an integrated product that fundamentally changes the diagnosis and treatment of pre-symptomatic and febrile phases of infectious disease. 

We combine cutting edge analytical technologies with advances in biology, nanopore sequencing and algorithmic learning to create high-value assays for healthcare, infectious disease identification, biosecurity, intelligence, and other national security needs. Our processes are designed to be implemented on multiple automation platforms, including high-throughput laboratory, near-patient, and field-forward systems.


Our products will support the US defense, intelligence communities, and health security agencies, global health organizations, pharma partners, hospitals, clinics, physicians and patients. 


Leveraging over 100 years of combined experience in the biotechnology, diagnostics, and drug discovery industries, our scientific leadership team has developed advanced technologies for multiple government agencies and global health organizations. 


We are committed to delivering new technologies to support the missions of our government partners and plan to commercialize these technologies in collaboration with industry-leading therapeutic, diagnostic, and research product companies. 


Our team is passionate to enable new capabilities for national security and healthcare. 



Our work environment is challenging, motivating, rewarding and designed to foster innovation and scientific excellence
