Kaitek Labs harnesses the computing power of bacteria, turning them into in vivo testing assays for virtually any target metabolite. Kaitek has developed three basic synthetic pathways that allow bacteria to identify, measure and ultimately translate the assessed information to the user. These routes will be materialized in the company's first product: a red tide detection kit known as RTDK.
RTDK is an innovative method for detection of red tide. It uses a bacteria to sense toxins, that changes color accordingly to the toxicity, so anyone can use it
