No FDA-cleared AST platforms meet clinical labs’ requirement for same-shift results. SeLux’s rapid method takes only 4 hours, uniquely enabling same-day changes in patient treatment.
SeLux’s USA reagent detects the presence of bacteria hours before standard methods.
The SeLux USA works across a broad menu of bacteria, delivering flexibility and breadth to labs.
The SeLux process is compatible with standard microplates and signal detectors, making adoption easy.
One SeLux system delivers 50 AST tests per day, exceeding the workflow needs of labs.
The SeLux system leverages standard microbiology processes so labs can easily integrate SeLux technology while increasing efficiency.
Menu of 60+ antibiotics and easy incorporation of newly-approved drugs.
Aleksandar Vacic is the President and co-founder of SeLux. His primary leadership role at SeLux is engineering, product development and quality. As an applied physicist and electrical engineer, Alek believes that both strong theoretical foundations and hands-on practical insights must be exploited to commercialize novel technologies. He enjoys working with multidisciplinary teams solving complex problems. His work has spanned semiconductors, plasma engineering, optics, optoelectronics, bioelectronics, Monte Carlo simulations, and numerical algorithms.
Previously, he led the Cell Processing team at 1366 Technologies where he transferred processes to customer manufacturing sites in Asia and Europe, and developed a plasma texturing process for high efficiency solar cells.
While at Yale he developed fabrication and design methods to improve yield and reliability of nanoscale biosensors including the understanding of semiconductor-biomolecule interaction which resulted in a novel calibration and quantification methodology. He has 2 granted, 1 licensed, and 10 pending patents and provisional applications. He earned his PhD from Yale and Dipl.-Ing. (5 year) in Technical Physics from the School of Electrical Engineering in Belgrade (Serbia) as Valedictorian (Class of 600+). While at Yale he was awarded the Best Presentation award at the Nanodevices for Defense and Security Conference 2009 and Yale College Prize Teaching Fellowship. When not solving difficult problems, Alek enjoys travelling, cooking and running with his awesome spouse, Yi-Wen.
President, Engineering and Product
We founded SeLux in 2014 after a successful technical demonstration done in partnership with a Harvard clinic. We are very thankful to all our investors for giving us the opportunity to change the field of diagnostics. We have built our core team and are always looking for scientific and engineering talent.
