Rapid and Cost-effective DNA Diagnostics
Swiftdx are producing DNA test strips that are as simple to use and as cost effective as a pregnancy test. The sample is applied to the test strip and a line appears if the target DNA is present in the sample.
Test performed in 15 minutes at the patient's side.
Can be stored at room temperature for over a year
Highly sensitive and specific
Targets specific DNA sequences
Costs a fraction of the price for current DNA diagnostics
Current DNA diagnostics take too long. By the time the results get back, the patient may have already gotten worse and the window of opportunity for effective treatment will have passed.
Current DNA diagnostics are a bottleneck between patients and their effective treatment.
Current DNA diagnostics cost too much. They cannot or are not used when they are needed due to their expense.
Samples must be transported to specialised facilities for DNA diagnostics to be performed.
DNA diagnostics currently require expensive and specialised equipment.
DNA diagnostics currently require specialised staff to run the tests and interpret their results.
