Zika virus

The system is approved for use with the Procleix Ultrio Elite Assay, the Procleix WNV Assay, Procleix Zika Virus Assay, and the Procelix Babesia Assay.

The platform can detect a single virus in more than 1,000 samples at a time or more than 160 viruses, including SARS-CoV-2, in a small number of samples.

The company has developed a proof-of-concept single-pore sensor that it anticipates integrating into a prototype testing platform this year.  

The Cobas Zika test is for use on Roche's Cobas 6800/8800 systems to screen blood donations and detects Zika virus RNA in samples of human plasma.

Two new grants are helping the company develop its SHERLOCK and INSPECTR technologies as the basis for creating innovative diagnostics.

The system uses the Cas13 nuclease to identify target sites in various RNA viruses and then destroy them.

Researchers saw signs of an unreported Zika virus outbreak in Cuba in 2017, well after the documented decline in new cases in Brazil and other parts of the world.

The funding will support development of a test for the Zika virus using Ontera's silicon nanopore-based molecular diagnostics platform.
