ESA Biosciences, Inc. has a distinguished history of innovation, fueled by a desire to get answers for research problems and solve specific applications challenges for customers. Originally named Environmental Sciences Associates, ESA was founded in 1968 by four recently graduated MIT PhDs who set out to develop an instrument to measure lead in blood based on a novel electrochemical technique, called anodic stripping voltammetry, or ASV. The result was the first practical means of testing for lead poisoning outside the reference laboratory. Since then, ESA has introduced the first and only point-of-care testing device for lead poisoning cleared by the US Food and Drug Administration.
