Detecting SARS-CoV2 using a Novel Real-Time Bioluminescent Assay
University of Houston, Houston, Texas, United States
Detection technologies for identification of SARS-CoV-2 from environmental samples
Tech Brief: We were able to detect the presence of SARS-CoV2 using bioluminescence in real time. Since our technology is in real-time, we are able to detect in a few minutes the presence or the absence of the virus in a given sample.
FIGURES OF MERIT Value Proposition: Our technology directly impacts the Pharmaceutical Industry sector as well as companies involved in clinical diagnostics. We will be able to provide a high value solution, that will accelerate COVID-19 drug discovery and drug development as well as an early opportune diagnostic for the entire population.
