XPRIZE – Rapid Covid Testing
The rumours of our demise have been greatly exaggerated but due to participating in the XPRIZE competition for rapid covid testing we are lacking resources to update the pathogen alerts.

For us this competition is an important incentive as it would give us the means to do more. Not just for COVID-19 but for combating other diseases as well. We have entered the competition along with commercial partner Mmolecular who will be producing the device and supplying reagents. This partnership enables us to make everything available on a non-commercial basis to low resource countries and other NGO’s who provide medical care to people in need.
We will be providing more updates on how this is progressing soon.
