Binax, Inc. Company Profile

13:56 EDT 21st September 2017 | BioPortfolio

Binax was founded in 1986 by Roger Piasio and Myron Hamer with a vision of developing a diagnostic company that is dedicated to providing the tools for health care providers to accurately assess patients' diseases at point-of-care facilities and improve global health. With a background in industrial science at Becton Dickinson and Corning Glass Works, and prior to founding Binax, Roger Piasio was one of the co-founders of Ventrex, one of Maine's first biotechnology companies Binax's mission is to develop fundamentally new diagnostic tools that facilitate pathogen identification, thereby allowing targeted treatment for infectious diseases and promoting better patient management.
In 1990, commensurate with the development of the Company's ICT NOW® platform and the launch of its first test, the Binax NOW Strep A Test, the Company recognized that rapid diagnostic testing could have a great impact on curbing the ever-increasing spread of antibiotic resistant bacteria. Since then, the Company has systematically introduced the medical and scientific communities to the reality of identifying the etiology of pneumonia through the use of the NOW Legionella Urinary Antigen Tests and NOW Streptococcus pneumoniae Antigen Tests.
