Crystal Diagnostics Successfully Detects
Deadly Ebola Virus in Less Than 20 Minutes

PRWEB, July 09, 2015

Rapid Ebola detection indicates that the CDx platform technology is well suited for Medical Device Applications.

Crystal Diagnostics (CDx) has successfully detected live Ebola virus with its unique liquid crystal-based rapid pathogen detection system. Those tests were conducted at the University of Texas Galveston Medical Branch Biosafety Level 4 (BSL-4) facilities. Tests demonstrated detection at variable concentrations of live Ebola Zaire in serum samples in less than 20 minutes.

The CDx Xpress System combines proprietary liquid crystal technology with highly specific antibody-coated paramagnetic microspheres to selectively capture and detect Ebola virus faster than other commercial systems.

CDx sells rapid pathogen systems in the Food Safety market to quickly and accurately detect food borne pathogens in a variety of products including meat and produce. The company’s systems are in use in commercial test labs, government agencies, universities, and research facilities, as well as food processors. The Ebola detection project is the first application outside of the food safety arena for CDx. (read more…)
