LIFE SCIENCES Krishi
Treatment of bovine respiratory disease fails 33% of the time leading to losses of $1 billion per year in the U.S. Krishi is developing diagnostic sensors for bovine respiratory disease. The company's proprietary sensors are based on high-quality, cotton linters - derived cellulose paper.
Mohit Verma is the founder of Krishi and an assistant professor at Purdue University. His lab builds portable biosensors that can be used for detecting pathogens in the field. He is currently developing diagnostic sensors for bovine respiratory disease to help suggest which antibiotics are more likely to be effective for treatment.
