COVIDETECT at Foro Transfiere 2022
BioDevices Technologies CEO, Álvaro Morales, presented an Elevator Pitch at the Driving Innovation Area of the Foro Transfiere 2022. Our work was framed within the «Results of research projects on SARS-CoV-2 in Andalusia», presented by Teresa Serrano, General Director of Universities, Research and Technology of the Ministry of Economic Transformation, Industry, Knowledge and Universities of the Andalusian Regional Government.
Álvaro presented the result of the COVIDETECT project, funded by the Junta de Andalucía and promoted during the COVID-19 pandemic crisis. Thanks to this project, we developed a Lab-on-Chip able to detect SARS-Cov-2 with LAMP technique and absorbance, a technique similar to PCR, but faster, simpler and cheaper.
This Lab-on-Chip allows diagnosis directly at the point of care, i.e. hospitals and health centers, without the need for specialized personnel. This significantly reduces response times and thus costs.
BioDevices appreciates the great reception and interest in our technology by those attending the Forum.
