SHARING OPTIONS:

LYON, France—In pursuit of more testing options, BIOASTER, Microbiology Technology Institute, and FUJIFILM Corp. have struck up a collaboration for the study of an Ebola virus disease (EVD) rapid diagnostic system. The goal of the study will be the development of a rapid, small, portable diagnostic system with high diagnostic capabilities comparable to molecular testing. This work unites FUJIFILM’s high-sensitivity virus detection technology with Ebola virus antibodies produced and evaluated by BIOASTER.
 
Nathalie Garçon, chief executive and scientific officer at BIOASTER, noted that such a diagnostic “is a very critical step in this fight, and the argentic amplification technology developed by FUJIFILM is a promising approach to detect the presence of the virus with results in three to 15 minutes. We are very [enthusiastic] to work with FUJIFILM in translating this technology for the detection of EVD. We are also very excited to conduct this new project with our first partner in Asia.”
