The widespread of viral infectious diseases and their subsequent mortality rates raised an urgent requirement of a diagnostic kit for rapid and specific detection of viruses in diverse biological specimens.
Among these viral infectious illnesses, the outbreak of SARS-CoV-2 caused a serious threat to the mankind through ultra-fast person-to-person transmission that cannot be furtherly controlled via common time-consuming traditional detection approaches.
The main goal is to slow down the rapid spread of viral infections through the development of rigorous isolation strategies via the design of rapid specific and sensitive kits, which are capable of an early detection in suspected individuals even in the silent stage of an illness.
Despite the urgent need for a rapid diagnostic kit, healthcare authorities are still using traditional detection approaches namely, RT-PCR and ELISA which suffer from serious demerits including sophisticated laboratory instrument, isolation of viral particles, extraction of viral RNA, expert manpower, high rate of false negative outcomes and time-demanding protocols that are not match with the rapid spread speed of SARS-CoV-2 and wise isolation policy for stopping the pandemic. Hence, it is important to consider alternative approaches to deeply address this demand for current and future viral pandemics.
Detectica has addressed this urgent requirement via development of an efficient, prompt, and accurate electrochemical diagnostic kit capable of early detection of diverse kinds of pathogenic viruses in any aquatic biological media, i.e., Saliva, Blood, or Nasal swab.
Despite common diagnostic platforms, this technique does not use any kind of biological receptor and hence can detect any virus through its structural features and even trace it upon possible mutation of the virus or appearance of a new type of pathogenic virus. This fantastic feature helps healthcare authorities to detect viral pandemics at their early stages, isolate infected people, and stop the pandemic before infecting too many citizens.
