As a fnal stage, more extensive trials will be performed on the device, which will be close to the fnal product format. Bloody accurate. Versatility SAW biosensor technology has efectively demonstrated its potential as a low-cost tester that has the potential to revolutionise the speed of diagnosis and treatment, hitting the fu virus hard at its source and inhibiting its ability to spread. However, the potential applications of this concept are far broader. At its core lies a versatile biochip platform technology for rapid wireless immunodiagnostic testing that could be adapted for other POC applications such as HIV and periodontal gum disease, which also afect millions of people and cost billions of dollars in treatment programs. In a separate project, OJ Bio is working with researchers from University College London (UCL) on the development of a POC device capable of detecting HIV marker proteins in human blood quickly and efectively. So far the technology has been proven to work using model HIV samples, and new funding from the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Invention for Innovation (i4i) program will enable early-stage clinical work to be undertaken on the technology's ability to detect HIV marker proteins in human blood quickly and efectively. Te beauty of this technology in this application is its inherent sensitivity to low levels of multiple markers, with the potential for much earlier diagnosis of HIV. Tis will empower patients to gain earlier access to antiretroviral treatment and achieve better health outcomes.
