Aropha, based in Bedford, OH, raised $1M in Seed funding for its lab automation and AI biodegradable material testing innovations.

The funding round was led by Comeback Capital, with additional investments from Lightbank and Right Side Capital Management (RSCM). The company will use the funds to expand lab operations and enhance its AI predictive model, ArophaAI.

Aropha, co-founded by Travis Johnston (COO, CRO) and Kuan Huang (CEO, CTO), aims to strengthen its industry presence and further develop its biodegradation prediction technology. The startup has already served over 80 clients and achieved 190% year-over-year revenue growth by the end of Q4.

Recently, Aropha launched a free version of its predictive model, ArophaAI-2, to foster broader industry adoption. The company’s rapid testing services combine in-lab and in-silico methodologies, setting it apart in the sustainable materials space.
