Detroit R&D specializes in research and development of diagnostics for various diseases and tools to screen for environmental toxicants under support of National Institutes of Health (NIH) SBIR funding (~10M since 1998). Detroit R&D markets life-science-related products directly or through 23 worldwide distributors (visit


Recently, the Detroit R&D BioTarget® sEH Hypertension diagnostic (14,15-DHET ELISA) was selected as an innovative technology to be featured on the Discovery Channel Innovations TV series hosted by Ed Begley, Jr.


The initial broadcast will be on Nov. 22nd 7:30 AM (EST and PST).

The FDA-exempt BioTarget®  sEH diagnostic detects 14,15-DHET (sEH metabolite) in blood and urine as a biomarker for hypertension-related diseases including cardiovascular diseases, heart attack, stroke, kidney diseases, diabetes and severe asthma.

This targeted personalized approach will correct the “trial and error” approach currently used by physicians worldwide who prescribe 1-4 drugs from ~75 FDA approved hypertension drugs.  Detroit R&D’s BioTarget®  precision hypertension diagnostics will save enormous medical costs ($150B projected for 2015 in US, projected to double to $274B in 2030) and lives from side effects, especially for the uncontrolled resistant hypertensive patients (~50% of the treated in US).
