“Non-invasive SARS-CoV-2 antibody testing is urgently needed to estimate the incidence and prevalence of the SARS-CoV-2 infection.”

  • Non-invasive
  • Real-time results
  • Quantifies levels of immunity and/or exposure (rather than just positive or negative result)
  • Ability to be printed at scale, at a low cost

GBS Inc. has Collaborated with Harvard University to Develop a Real-time SARS-CoV-2 Antibody Biosensor

The Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University is integrating our world-first Biosensor Platform technology with a specialised nanomaterial coating.

This gel-like coating allows the detection of IgM and/or igG antibodies which indicates a person’s current or previous exposure to the SARS-CoV-2 virus, and thus, a potential infection with COVID-19.

Further development could result in a chewing-gum sized diagnostic ‘strip’ to be used as a diagnostic tool for COVID-19 testing at point of care.
