S4 Multiplex COVID-19/ MERS-CoV/Influenza A/B ( Uses stool, saliva, sputum )

 S4 can detect four viruses - COVID-19/MERS/Influenza A/Influenza B, all this in just 15 min without the use of any equipment or trained technicians. Hence our test can differentiate between FLU and SARS-CoV-2 in just fifteen min that too from Saliva/Sputum/Stool.  


Saliva/Sputum/Stool based antigen tests offer far greater advantages over the traditional antigen tests - not only from comfort side but also from epidemiological understanding side. Here we can even detect cases which are not detected in traditional antigen tests which rely on SARS based antibodies for capture, using colloidal gold. Our method is very unique and uses legend-receptor mechanism for capture. We have also had cases very RT-PCR is negative but on our test its positive and then after few days again the test on RT-PCR comes positive. Please note viral load in saliva/sputum/stool is much higher than OP/NP swabs. 

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

Is the method already deployed in a UK hospital or clinical setting?


Where is the kit manufactured?


What is the turn around time (sample-to-result) for this method?

15 minutes

How will your solution communicate directly with the Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS)?

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

What is the likely production volume?

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

Who are you already partnering with on this?
