What we do: Bikanta uses nanodiamonds to detect molecular abnormalities at a much earlier stage than traditionally possible. Current cancer screening is unable to detect breakaway tumor cells that lead to micrometastatic tumors. Bikanta is introducing a revolutionary nanotechnology platform based on nanodiamonds that empowers researchers and medics to detect and address diseases early at the molecular level.Why it's a big deal: It is widely accepted that the early detection of cancer is the most effective method for increasing the cure rate. Unfortunately, conventional methods for disease detection at the molecular level suffer from severe technical limitations. Bikanta's nanodiamonds are superior optical probes for brightness and signal stability. This technology will redefine medical imaging, allowing medical professionals to detect diseases that they currently cannot.
Optical-imaging dyes can be used to locate cancerous cells, but the dyed cells can be hard to see in digital images of the affected tissues. Nanodiamonds, by contrast, have shown a 100-fold improvement over conventional optical imaging methods.

Curious how well the companies have done? Or how many raised follow-on financing?
Some fine print: 1) These numbers include startups currently live on Wefunder if they pass their minimum target. 2) Some startups use two different laws at the same time (i.e., Regulation D and Regulation Crowdfunding).
