QuantuMDx initially appealed for help before Christmas and received an excellent response to the survey but the company is still keen to hear from more people working in the care sector.
QuantuMDx is passionate about making life better for everybody by solving real-world diagnostic problems with multiplex molecular testing solutions designed to be used at the point of need. The Q-POC™ platform is a rapid PCR testing system that delivers fast, accurate and actionable results in approximately 30 minutes.
The solution compresses an entire molecular diagnostic laboratory into a simple to use, accessible and affordable device, which is able to detect all known COVID virus strains, including the latest Omicron (B.1.1.529) variant.
Jonathan O’Halloran, Chief Executive, QuantuMDx, said: “We understand the enormous strain COVID-19 testing places on care homes and their teams. We want to do all we can to help improve the situation for staff and residents.
“The current testing regime, particularly with PCR, is cumbersome and needs rethinking. We’re hoping to work together with care homes to help bring about the change that is urgently needed.”
QuantuMDx Q-POC™ is a simple to use solution that requires no special medical training to use. It can be used within a wide range of settings including care homes, pharmacies, emergency rooms, ICU, birthing centres and clinics.
The platform’s portability and ease of use at the point of need also makes it an ideal solution for gold standard PCR testing in non-care-giving settings, such as businesses, cruise liners and airports.
For quick results most individuals and organisations currently rely on rapid flow tests which can be inaccurate and not sensitive enough to detect COVID-19.
By contrast Q-POC™ delivers fast results with accuracy and reliability as standard.
