Working towards improving the delivery of public healthcare 

In this webinar, Andrew Anyakwo, Head of Reagent Development at LEX Diagnostics, will give a unique insight into how the LEX team developed a low-cost, point-of-care PCR test that aims to diagnose SARS-CoV-2 and Flu A/B in just 5 minutes with high sensitivity and specificity.

Andrew talks about how his team overcame two aspects of the technical challenge in delivering this technology:

1) Support of rapid thermocycling

2) Selection and optimisation of components to enable high sensitivity amplification in the presence of sample inhibition.
