The Next Generation Incubator

Dalton Bioanalytics is a UCLA spin-off startup digitizing the biochemical composition of blood, cells, and other biological samples. For the first time in history, Dalton has developed an all-inclusive assay using Mass Spectrometry—enabling the simultaneous analysis of diverse molecules such as proteins, lipids, electrolytes, nutrients, environmental chemicals, drugs, and other small molecules. We are developing our platform using this technology to empower researchers and scientists to understand and discover new and important biochemical insights into bioprocessing, biomarker discovery, pharmaceuticals, foods, and diagnostics.
