Boston-based QSM Diagnostics develops point-of-care veterinary diagnostics for the rapid identification of bacterial infections. The company has several decades of experience in the development and commercialization of sensors and medical devices.
In 2016, QSM began working with Analog Garage to develop a low cost, portable electrochemical biosensor reader that could deliver the same results as traditional veterinary reference lab equipment, right there in the clinic. Later, when ADI and PalmSens released the EmStat Pico, QSM quickly saw the potential for this newer, smaller potentiostat module to save significant resources in product development compared to designing a similar product in-house.
“Why reinvent the wheel?”

“We’ve put all our efforts into the testing chemistry and didn’t have to worry about the electronics that were going to perform that measurement,” said Ed Goluch, CEO, QSM. “Why reinvent the wheel?”
QSM’s Otter eQ is one of the first products incorporating EmStat Pico by ADI and PalmSens to reach the market and demonstrates the versatility of a potentiostat as a biosensor reader for point-of-care applications—today, for your dog; tomorrow, for everyone else.
