Hubbard biotech firm's work revolutionary

October 11, 2008

HUBBARD — It’s an unusual place for the future to be.

To one side is a restored steam engine that pulled mining trains in the first half of the 1900s. On the other side is a 70-year-old diner and a restored version of one of Hubbard’s first general stores.

In the middle of this Main Street nostalgia is something different: a biotechnology company that promises to change laboratory testing in the future.

NanoLogix quietly has been conducting experiments, amassing patents and meeting with scientists from the government and major corporations. All of the work revolves around something that company chief executive Bret Barnhizer calls revolutionary.

“It’s stunning someone didn’t come up with this decades ago,” he said.

NanoLogix’s products promise to create a new type of scientific testing. If Barnhizer’s vision comes true, petri dishes — the staple of lab tests for more than 100 years — would hardly be needed.
