Advanced Virus Enrichment and Detection

Technology Summary

The technology consists of a portable sample reparation platform that enables high‐efficiency virus enrichment from field samples (from cotton swabs and tissue biopsy), without using any antibody. The platform allows the specific capture of viral particles while removing host or sample contaminates.  Viruses of interest are trapped by carefully tuning the filter pore size.  

Application and Market Utility

Proof‐of‐concept studies have demonstrated the platform to be compatible with plant, animal and human samples. The Technology Readiness Level for both indications is estimated to be a 5/9. During initial studies the USDA has validated the test for the diagnosis of Plum Pox Virus. Soon to be published experiments additionally validate the test for the capture (and subsequent NGS analysis) of Avian Influenza.Type your paragraph here.
