CoaPath

Our mission is to prevent pathogens from spreading by delivering an on-site test that is low-priced, easy-to-handle, and reliable.

The challenge

The challenge we need to address is to supply on-site tests for the agricultural market, which are low-priced, easy-to-handle, and reliable. Currently, only limited on-site tests are available, which are often expensive, complicated, and unreliable. An alternative is the standard PCR-test which can be performed in the laboratory. Even though this test is reliable, it is very expensive. The costs do not only rise from logistics but also because of the need for trained personnel. Therefore, there is need for a new test, more specific and on-site. With our new technology, this need can be fulfilled; thus, preventing the pathogens from spreading.

The solution

We propose an on-site test kit that can be performed by a person unskilled in the art. The test is designed to binary detect viruses, bacteria or parasites on-site, with just the naked eye. The price of one test-kit will be around 5 euros. It performs on a single pathogen or a multiplex combination thereof. The test is able to detect both RNA or DNA, where no reverse transcriptase is needed. Concluding, when it is a matter of life or death, spreading or suppressing, our technology proves to be a low-priced, easy-to-handle, and reliable on-site test solution for pathogen detection. Prevent virus spread? Test with CoaPath!
