A new diagnostic platform could be a game-changing, end-to-end solution for en-masse, rapid and precise diagnosis of COVID-19 and other viruses at the point-of-care (POC).

Dotz Nano Ltd.’s (Kefar-Sava, Israel) Mega-Diagnostic Platform is an all-in-one solution that consists of proprietary DOTZ Test Kits, an integrated diagnostic system, and a results-management system. The Dotz Mega-Diagnostic Platform is based on RT-LAMP (Loop-Mediated Isothermal Amplification) technology with >95% true positive rate for viral loads of 1250 copies per mL; and 100% specificity.

Dotz’s platform provides an integrated and cost-efficient solution for SARS-CoV-2 testing that has the capacity to simultaneously test up to 96 samples per device in approximately 30 minutes. The test produces a visually-detectable change in the color of samples, ensuring a simple and rapid analysis procedure. The platform can use both saliva and nasopharyngeal samples for a more comfortable testing experience, particularly for children.

The Dotz Mega-Diagnostic Platform can be used in organizations or locations that are required to perform large numbers of tests in a short time, such as airports, universities, factories, workplaces, border crossings, and more. It requires minimal operator training, thereby significantly lowering overhead costs such as medical personnel and laboratory equipment. Dotz’s diagnostic solution has been granted CE Mark Authorization from the European Union, and it has also applied for Emergency Use Authorization from the FDA. Dotz will showcase its Mega-Diagnostic Platform for the first time at the MEDICA 2021 Trade Fair in Dusseldorf, Germany, November 15-18th.

“From the outbreak of the pandemic up to this point, en-masse and accurate detection of COVID-19 relied on complex and slow methods that must be performed in well-equipped laboratories by trained personnel,” said Gideon Shmuel, CEO of Dotz. “Our integrated, simple-to-use solution brings rapid and highly-accurate testing capabilities to the field, supporting a resumption of normal economic activity while keeping those transiting highly-trafficked public spaces healthy and safe.”
