Molecular diagnostics--scanning DNA for genes associated with disease--is the most accurate method of early disease detection, but usually requires large, expensive laboratory facilities and trained experts, slowing results. Mammoth’s DETECTR tool was built to bypass many of those obstacles to rapid testing, and in January, the company reconfigured DETECTR to make the first CRISPR-based test for Covid-19. The test is a low-cost option that produces highly accurate results in just 30 minutes--instead of the 24-hour minimum required by many other tests.

At NPHub, culture is one of the most important aspects of our team. Fostering a family dynamic is extremely important to keeping everyone feeling confident, understood, and engaged. We make sure everyone has a voice to express their concerns or frustrations and also has ample opportunity to feel challenged on a daily basis. We encourage team members to take monthly mental health days. All employees have one-on-ones with their direct managers at least twice a month, and one-on-ones with the founders three times a quarter.
