Integumen has announced it has signed a Material Transfer Agreement (‘MTA’) with the Aptamer Group Limited (‘Aptamer Group’) to develop and manufacture aptamers to detect local SARS-CoV-2 hotspots in wastewater.
Aptamers have the potential to play a key role in the real-time identification of COVID-19 hotspots in wastewater, from which authorities can be alerted through Integumen’s real-time alert system to prevent the spread of the disease to the wider community.
Recognising the World Health Authority’s guidance on the prevention of COVID-19 via wastewater, this collaboration represents yet another example of Integumen’s proactive approach that enables different specialisations of the diagnostics industry to successfully be brought together to create effective solutions in the fight against this global pandemic.
