Calcutta (West Bengal) [India], April 19 (ANI / BusinessWire India): Prophecy Sensorlytics Pvt Ltd (the Indian subsidiary of MachineSense LLC, USA) today announced the development of a breakthrough in bio-sensor technology that detects Covid-19 and other advanced protein viruses in the aerosol phase.
This new detection technology is based on the properties of advanced proteins in motion and its colloidal interaction with specific liquids which generates reliable electrical signals detecting even a tiny droplet with 50 to 100 viruses in the aerosol phase. Current technology is not based on a specific sequence of RNA or DNA, but can detect the presence of viruses enveloped in advanced proteins. Covid-19, Influenza and other cold viruses are enveloped in advanced proteins and so the new sensor will detect the presence of one of these common viruses in the air in any public space or gathering.
Over the past six months, the Prophecy Sensorlytics R&D team has tested this bio-sensor technology in various virology laboratories, including the Rajiv Gandhi Center for Biotechnology (RGCB), Kerala, India. The accuracy of the system has been verified with SARS-CoV-2 pseudovirions, five strains of influenza and other different types of viruses with advanced proteins. It has also been used in local hospitals and clinics. The company has already filed two utility patents in India and the United States.
“This innovation opens up a new public safety possibility in our war on the pandemic. With the second wave on the rise, it is extremely clear that vaccines or other measures will have limits against new strains that will continue to arrive with each new season. . Since all Covid mutants will have advanced proteins, this breakthrough is a cost-effective way to ensure safe and breathable airspace in public gatherings. This can be installed in all public spaces and transportation such as workplaces, taxis, trains, flights, churches, restaurants and schools, etc. Once the virus is detected, people can take the first preventive measure by leaving the premises as anyone will in the event of an alarm fire, ”said Conrad Bessemer, chairman.“ This technology will be particularly useful during the current election season in India, where public gatherings, gra knots and small, can be made more secure, ”Bessemer added.
Over the past year, Prophecy Sensorlytics also released an automated fever detection system called FeverWarn, which is currently one of the most popular automated mass fever detection technologies in the United States. Feverwarn is equipped with patented OPX technology which makes fever screening more accurate than its competitors in the market, as the system relates skin temperature to body temperature algorithmically. The main advantage of OPX technology is its ability to provide accurate readings even in hot or cold environments, whereas ordinary technology is limited to accuracy in ambient conditions only. With the release of this virus detection system, Prophecy Sensorlytics and its American parent company MachineSense aim to develop a comprehensive set of technologies to protect the public from virus attacks.
