Company Overview

Why We Started This Company

The current process for chemical analysis requires collecting a sample at the refinery, factory, or well-head, and shipping the sample to a laboratory, a process that takes days to weeks. Our customers are seeking rapid, on-site testing methods that eliminate this time-consuming process. With OndaVia's products, we enable on-site testing, with results in under five minutes that allow our customers to improve their processes, increase their yields, operate more safely, and avoid unnecessary delays.

What Sets Us Apart

We have a smart, experienced team with a powerful technology that addresses a deep need in a $160 billion market. Our core technologies are backed by twelve issued US patents and seven pending patent applications in the fields of microfluidics, nanotechnology, and spectroscopy. Our products allow our customers to do water and chemical analysis with a portable instrument and a single-use, consumable cartridge. We are developing new instruments for continuous in-line analysis and ultra-portable, low-cost testing.

Our Keys To Success

We are already working with the largest companies in the oil & gas services sector, and expanding our testing methods into various environmental remediation applications. These customers have helped us design and optimize our products to meet their needs, while providing the samples and data needed to prove our technology. We are well-positioned to achieve cash-flow breakeven in early 2018 through sales in the oil & gas sector.
