VANCOUVER, BC, October 22, 2020 – Syniad Innovations Inc (“Syniad”) is pleased to announce that EcoScreen Solutions Inc (“EcoScreen”) has reported essential validation steps in the development of its biosensing platform.
EcoScreen has taken a new approach to pathogen detection that has shown promising results as a platform for rapid, low cost and non-invasive detection of COVID-19 infection based on saliva or shallow, nasal swab samples. To validate this approach, the Company has worked with three independent laboratories to register proof-of-concept validation of the platform’s potential across a variety of instrumentation form factors: quartz crystal microbalance with dissipation monitoring (QCM-D), Lateral Flow Assay (LFA), Surface Plasma Resonance (SPR).
Commenting on today’s announcement, Rob Greene, EcoScereen’s CTO, said, “Although this result should not be taken out of context, it’s incredibly encouraging and a strong validation that we are well on the way to demonstrating the overall potential of EcoScreen’s platform. The next step is to develop our prototype product.“
