Description
We are proposing to develop a molecular assay for the safe, rapid, specific and sensitive detection of Ebola Virus Infection in capillary (or venous) blood samples combining ALTONA’s Pan-filo screening IVD test with the existing Alere™ q point of care molecular diagnostics platform. The purpose of this project is to utilize existing and proven PCR assay(s) designed for laboratory use and to take advantage of the Alere™ q point of care molecular instrument and cartridge design to simplify Ebola testing so that molecular testing can be expanded to sites beyond which high end laboratory infrastructure is not available while simultaneously greatly reducing infection...
