OTTAWA, Ontario, July 15, 2020 — A COVID-19 Detection System from OZ Optics Ltd. is designed to detect fluorescence and color changes from dyes that activate in the presence of specific viral DNA or RNA.

The system includes optical sources, filters, detectors, and temperature control systems to heat samples to the temperatures needed for Loop-Mediated Isothermal Amplification (LAMP) reactions, Polymerase Chain Reactions (PCR) or similar reactions, and then launch light through samples to detect fluorescence from the viral DNA/RNA. Patent-pending optics improve the signal to noise ratio and detect COVID-19 DNA from sample swabs in <30 min., in combination with LAMP reagent kits. Initial systems test individual samples.

The system can be adapted to detect other viruses and bacteria by simply changing the reagent kit. The standard system is optimized for fluorescence at green wavelengths. Versions with built-in spectrometers are also available to analyze color changes.
