It is impossible to defeat an enemy we cannot see
The COVID-19 pandemic has devastating social and economical impacts.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, we have committed our technology to developing new tools aimed at helping in three main phases:
1Reducing the amount of sick people by stopping viral spreading:
Development and testing of a pocket-size PCR for the detection of viral RNA in 20 minutes from an anterior nasal swap or saliva, with very high accuracy
Point-Of-Care (POC) or at-home detection of SARS-CoV-2 in saliva and anterior nasal swabs (prototypes tested – TRL4)

2If you got seriously sick, let’s help health professionals:
CODOP – COvid-19 Disease Outcome Predictor
Predict disease course in COVID-19 hospitalized patients with a blood test and a machine-learning based algorithm (https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2021.09.20.21263794v1)
3What is our immunization level after an anti-SARS-CoV-2 vaccination?
Detection of anti-SARS-CoV-2 neutralizing antibodies from your home with a novel device using only 4 drops of capillary blood and with > 98% accuracy (independent testing finished – device ready for mass production)
We expect our efforts to help not only in the current COVID-19 pandemic but also for the response to future ones.
This project has been awarded with a special grant from the Presidential office of the Max Planck Society.
