Founded in 2018, ACME POCT is an Atlanta-based team of world-class academic and medical institutions including Emory University, Georgia Tech, and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta partnering with industry and government. 

Our mission is to foster collaboration among clinicians, technologists, and entrepreneurs to accelerate innovation and translation of microsystems-engineered technologies including microchip-enabled devices such as microelectromechanical systems (MEMs)-based sensors, microfluidics, and smartphone-based systems.

The overall goal of ACME POCT  is to assist and enable inventors from across the country who have developed microsystems-based POC technologies for applications that are beyond proof-of-concept to define their specific clinical needs, conduct clinical validation, and refine their technology, with the objective of accelerating the path to translation and clinical adoption and directly addressing the barriers thereof. 

In Memory: Oliver Brand, PhD

April 15, 2023: We are sad to announce that our beloved Georgia Tech PI of the ACME POCT has passed away after a brief illness. A note of memorandum can be found here. Dr. Brand will be remembered for his honors and accomplishments as a world-renowned scientist, professor, microsensors guru, and director of one of the largest nanotechnology centers in the country, but most of all as a wonderful colleague and friend. We will miss him dearly.
