Deward Manzer’s last high-tech startup was sold off by investors before he could take the company to the next level. Now, he’s making a few changes so he can take his company to the next level and beyond. He have a new optics-based technology to detect microbial contamination in water in real-time.
Manzer’s new company, Instant BioScan LLC, is one of two Tucson-area companies to be selected to make pitches to potential investors at Invest Southwest. The other local presenter is REhnu Inc., which is working to commercialize an advanced concentrating photovoltaic technology developed by University of Arizona astronomer Roger Angel.
