Medical Applications - Diagnosing & Differentiating Respiratory Infections
Our technology is overcoming multiple challenges in differentiating respiratory infections.
Accurate detection of respiratory infections presents a series of challenges. Firstly, strains mutate with high frequency. There is also only a short window for detection because as the infection takes hold, its concentration lessens. This means that if patients are not tested soon after exposure, there is a high risk of a false negative with conventional methods.
With high levels of sensitivity, rapid breath analysis of different respiratory infections offers a practical solution which can be deployed in a variety of settings – from care homes and schools to clinics and hospitals.
Ancon will run extensive trials once the COVID-19 situation allows.
