An MIT spinout, Biobot Analytics develops cutting-edge technology to transform sewers into public health observatories. Wastewater contains valuable information about the health of communities. Biobot Analytics collects it, analyzes it, and discovers hot to leverage it to make cities healthier.
Biobot Analytics’s first product is to measure opioids and other drug metabolites in sewage to estimate consumption in cities. With this data, those working on harm reduction can assess the scope of the epidemic, allocate resources, and gauge the effectiveness of programming over time.
