DIAGNOSTIC SERVICES WITH ON-SITE FIELD SURVEILLANCE
BIOVAC sets up portable devices that can detect and characterize pathogens respectively within the site of inspection. This eliminates the need for samples to be transported over long distances for tests allowing more time for intervention and mitigation of diseases. The assessment results and data obtained can be geo-tagged and transmitted to a central database using 3G data transmission. The utility of this device is paramount in disease surveillance, outbreak situations and detection in areas where access to traditional laboratory equipment is limited. This project is supported by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade through the Australian Development Accelerator, innovation exchange program.
