The goal of the project is to refine the company’s business model in the field of a portable device for genetic analysis of crop ... More
The technology employed in the Terrabio device is based on a patented heating, measurement and detection system with excellent thermal and energy parameters, as well as the proprietary analysis method: SNAAT® (Streamlined Nucleic Acid Amplification Technology) by Genomtec. The solution does not require constant low temperatures for the storage of test kits, whereas the test itself is conducted on site, so there is no need to transport a test sample. The device operates based on a proven technology of amplification of specific DNA fragments in the analysed pathogen or plant species, known as qPCR (quantitative Polymerase Chain Reaction).
The Terrabio solution is effective in almost 99.9% in the detection of any pre-defined pathogen in the field of plant diseases and the safety of water and food. No existing off-laboratory solution offers comparable sensitivity, specificity and cost effectiveness.
Turnaround time (from specimen collection to result reporting): up to 35 minutes.
It is enough to place the tested material in the reagent tube, add a buffer after 5 minutes and transfer the sample to the test tubes.
The analyser can be used by agri-food businesses, food manufacturers and distributors, farmers, veterinary surgeons, agricultural advisors and many more.
Identification of up to 16 pathogens during a single test.
Thanks to the advanced, Artificial Intelligence-based techniques, it will be possible to predict an increase in the number of pathogens based on the forecast of atmospheric conditions over subsequent days.
Possible test materials include:
Place the genetic material in an Eppendorf tube
Transfer a drop of the material to the reagent tube
Place the tube in the device and wait for 5 minutes
Automatic inline analysis of the results
