About Us

BluQ Technology is a group at the Department of Chemistry, School of Science and Engineering, Ateneo de Manila University headed by Dr. Erwin P. Enriquez. It is currently engaged in developing technologies that interface materials, DNA-, nano-chemistry and chemometric tools for reliable, field-ready, and affordable diagnostics, quality test kits, or quality assurance kits. Two of its initial offerings that are currently being field-tested and market validated are the BluQ WaterQ and PlantQ test kits which are being developed in partnership with Pascual Pharma Corporation and with funding support of a USAID-STRIDE CARWIN project grant (Phase 2).

The overall aim of the group is to come up with affordable and useful technology solutions for chemistry or materials-related concerns in the production and manufacturing of Philippine-based products.
