Mr. Alburty has over twenty years experience in the Aerosol Research Industry. Beginning at Midwest Research Institute (MRI) in Kansas City his work as a staff research scientist centered on aerosol studies in environmental and biodefense applications. After serving fifteen years at MRI, Dave founded an aerosol science and engineering R&D test and evaluation/product development lab in Drexel Missouri. AlburtyLab offers third party validation to developers of many large-scale Homeland Security and Department of Defense projects as well as various commercial products.
Through his work in the biodefense industry, Dave recognized a missing technology between bio-collection and rapid biodetection/identification. That link is the advancement of sample preparation and biological concentration technologies. Through internal research and development projects at AlburtyLab, The InnovaPrep System was developed to fulfill that need. InnovaPrep LLC was subsequently launched in June 2009 as a manufacturer and integrator of biological sampling and concentration systems and solutions.
Mr. Page is a co-inventor of the InnovaPrep concentration process and the technologies and processes that have been spurred since the initial development. He is an expert in the fields of aerosol and hydrosol collection and concentration, and their application to microorganism detection. He currently holds 33 patents for novel technologies related to microorganism collection and concentration.
Mr. Page has a broad, multidisciplinary science back ground that was cultivated while spending nearly 8 years at Midwest Research Institute(MRI) in Kansas City, Missouri as part of the Applied Engineering Division. While at MRI he served as principal investigator (PI) on a number of multidisciplinary programs; spending a significant period of time working on biodefense projects, and specifically aerosol collect/detect systems for the Department of Defense, U.S. Postal Service, and other agencies.
