Our History

“Leaders in molecular diagnostics are so immersed in the discoveries of the genome…that they’ve forgotten it’s all driven by math.”

Brent Satterfield, Ph.D

Co-Diagnostics Inc.

Discoverer and Inventor
of Co-Dx™ Algorithms
and CoPrimers™ 

Dr. Brent Satterfield, our founder, invented the Company’s suite of intellectual properties. Co-Diagnostics scientists use the complex mathematics of DNA test design to engineer DNA/RNA tests by employing algorithms that rapidly screen millions of possible options to pinpoint the optimum design for any given test. This bio-engineering approach to DNA test development is unique to Co-Diagnostics and is based on “cooperative theory,” a new generation of mathematical analytics created by Dr. Satterfield.

The Company was founded on Dr. Satterfield’s passion for bringing high-quality molecular diagnostics to areas in the world that have been overlooked and underserved by other diagnostics companies, and to populations that have only had access to cutting-edge technologies if they were fortunate enough to live in regions that benefited from philanthropic subsidies.

Thanks to our proprietary Co-Dx Design platform and because we own the technology that underpins our science, we are able to accomplish this faster, and more economically without burdensome royalties, positioning Co-Diagnostics to be the worldwide low-cost leader of molecular diagnostics services.
