Its technology was conceived in a Boston University lab, and the company was cofounded by Boston University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology PhD students Michael Koeris, Timothy Lu and Tanguy Chau.

What changes can we expect?

Diagnostics startup Sample6 recently moved its headquarters to Cambridge from Boston's Seaport District and raised an additional $2.5 million from the founder of the company, who also works as a biological engineering professor at MIT. The latest funding comes from Tim Lu, Sample6 founder and board member.
