Light-based virus detection – CES 2015

NSF-funded small business Nexgen Arrays is developing tests for the detection of viruses, including Ebola, Lassa, and Marburg, directly from blood, near the site of patient care. These tests are based on technology designed to rapidly detect a broad array of pathogens in a simple, easy-to-use test format. The tech grew out of the Smart Lighting Engineering Research Center, which develops new applications for health, productivity and energy savings. David Freeman, CEO of NexGen Arrays, demonstrated the technology at Eureka Park at the 2015 International CES.
