Tackling epidemics at their source

⋁   Rapidemic ⋁   Technology

Let's talk about the next pandemic: it is not a matter of if, it is a matter of when.

In the past year, we have seen weakened health care systems, ravaged economies and millions of people losing their job. Tests were not readily available, resulting in an out of control pandemic.

That is why we are developing Rapidemic: a modular, rapidly adaptable test able to accurately diagnose individuals with infectious diseases.

⋁   Technology

Why do current tests not suffice?

The current diagnosis methods on the market require extensive equipment, while equipment-free methods take a long time to redevelop for novel diseases and are less sensitive.

How do we want to solve this?

The unique advantages of Rapidemic are that the new technology is inexpensive, equipment-free, and more accurate than existing rapid test kits. Furthermore, it can be adapted to new viruses and deployed massively in minimal time, allowing testing to begin quickly after an outbreak.
