As the outbreak of 2019 Novel Coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, makes headlines on a daily basis, molecular diagnostic firms are rapidly responding by developing tests that assist in diagnosing the disease and support outbreak control. The process from development to bringing a test to market is often complex and lengthy and the need to identify the SARS-CoV-2 pathogen that causes coronavirus disease 2019 is pushing diagnostics firms and their suppliers to perform at the top of their capabilities.
In this webinar, Joseph Featherstone and Dr. Brent Satterfield from Co-Diagnostics (CoDx) will present insights into the development of the CoPrimer COVID-19 test. They will discuss how innovative design algorithms and a close partnership with a critical component supplier, LGC, Biosearch Technologies, enabled assay design and verification in seven days, making the COVID-19 test available for market. Brent will provide details of the CoPrimer technology and how the new algorithm enabled rapid assay design, while Joseph will share the latest developments toward clinical validation of the assay as well as discuss the CoDx Portable qPCR Lab and its impact in the field.
Dr. Geert Koene from Biosearch Technologies will share the perspective of a component supplier and will discuss details of the company's proprietary BHQ technology, experience in reacting to outbreaks, and the importance of a collaborative partnership._1597191709691
