We have developed a rapid point of care device for Covid 19 from dry swabs. The result is available in minutes

B: One to watch

We are currently undergoing ethics to validate the system

Have you validated this method, if so, how and what were the results of the validation?

Not as yet awaiting ethics

How quickly could this be deployed and what are the dependencies?

This could be validated in 5 days from the start of the study and deployed immediately

What is the likely production volume?

We are capable of having a network able to perform in excess of 25000 tests per day at the fraction of the cost

What are the risks and barriers to using this at scale?

Requires a number of infrared devices

Who are you already partnering with on this?

Derby and Burton NHS Trust

Looking for collaborative partners
