Dr. Monika Weber is the Founder and CEO of Fluid Screen, a startup in Boston, MA with a revolutionary chip-on-a-technology to detect and identify bacteria in water, food and process fluids. She was inspired due to the catastrophic foodborne illness in Europe in 2011 due to the E. Coli contamination which resulted in human deaths and hundreds of millions of dollars losses. Using electric forces to control bacteria motion in water, Dr. Weber discovered a method of concentrating and identifying bacteria in fluid samples. Her technology captures and identifies bacteria in 30 minutes with greater than 99% accuracy.
