About InnovaPrep

InnovaPrep simplifies test preparation

In the world of biological analysis, effective sample preparation and rapid sample-to-result are key in confidently identifying contaminants and pathogens. Reducing the mismatch between real-world sample volumes and detection system volumes can dramatically enhance your ability to detect biological targets of interest.

InnovaPrep’s patented sampling and sample preparation technology allows you to monitor the presence of biological targets in your environment or products faster and with greater sensitivity. 

With this innovative technology, you can:

  • Realize workflow and operational efficiencies
  • Proactively mitigate threats of contamination or illness
  • Reduce preventable losses and spoilage


InnovaPrep offer solutions for rapid collection and concentration of biological particles from air, fluids, and surfaces. Products are manufactured locally at InnovaPrep’s site in Drexel, Missouri. InnovaPrep is committed to providing green solutions by minimizing the number of consumables involved in the sample preparation process.


Sample preparation typically consumes 70% of the cycle time from sample collection to result. Our innovative technologies – which have received over 50 pending and awarded patents – offer highly efficient collection and concentration of biological particles from air, surfaces, and liquids. These solutions enable the most advanced biological detection systems to realize their full potential, dramatically reducing time-to-result.

InnovaPrep’s Wet Foam Elution™ process underlies many of these patents, facilitating instant recovery of particles from filters, membranes, surfaces, and objects. This innovative elution buffer technology was first developed for advanced biodefense and biodetection systems and greatly improves the way biological samples are collected and prepared for analysis.

Wet Foam Elution™ technology has been adopted in numerous industries to improve the pace and sensitivity of detection. Fields of application include, but are not limited to:

  • Industrial microbial control
  • Water safety
  • Wastewater-based epidemiology
  • Medical and veterinary diagnostics research
  • Metagenomic research
  • Disease monitoring
  • Environmental monitoring
