Coronavirus - responding to a growing threat with dynamically deployable, early mobile molecular detection
The coronavirus outbreak is showing signs of being the long feared outbreak that finally outruns the static testing model which was already creaking at the seams with previous outbreaks such as H1N1 and SARS.
The military has long understood that with a fast-moving enemy, a rapid, dynamic deployment capability is key. Coronavirus is exactly that kind of enemy, moving at remarkable speed, largely uninhibited by our existing static deployments, throughout Asia, through the Middle East and now into Europe.
In response to the coronavirus outbreak today, we are announcing that we are reorienting our business to prioritize support for groups seeking the kind of dynamic, mobile coronavirus detection capabilities unique to the Liberty16. As an open mobile real time PCR system benchmarked against the gold standard systems, it is rapidly configured to the best in class, whether that be fast and efficient mastermixes, high specificity primer/probe design or simple-to-use sample preparation.
We’ve already successfully run coronavirus real time PCR assays on the Liberty16. We are now prioritizing groups around the world working to develop dynamically deployable mobile coronavirus solutions with preferred pricing and delivery. Right now that’s what we think the world needs.
