The Global Alliance for Diagnostics Sets Next-Generation POC Molecular Testing Collaboration

The coronavirus pandemic has posed huge challenges to global public health and welfare during the past few years. FIND, the global alliance for diagnostics that seeks to ensure equitable access to reliable diagnoses around the world has realized POC molecular diagnostic (MDx) platforms with multiple target detection play a significant role in detecting infection earlier and reducing onward transmission of SARS-CoV-2.

However, the centralized format and the expensive cost of current MDx platforms have caused insufficient diagnosis, hence decentralized and affordable POC MDx platforms would allow more effective control of SARS-CoV-2 and other infections. 

“The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the advancement of technologies that have the potential to make a huge impact. Point-of-care molecular testing, with the capacity to test for multiple diseases, can help us change the question from ‘is this COVID?’ to ‘what is this?’, in primary care clinics where most people first seek care,” said Dr Marta Fernández Suárez, Chief Technology Officer at FIND. “We are pleased to be partnering with Pluslife to explore the potential of their promising technology as part of our mission to realize diagnosis for all.”

The Next-Generation POC molecular diagnostic tool like Pluslife Mini Dock System can be used in different application scenarios, which aims to help the decentralization of MDx in diagnosing facilities. During the COVID-19 pandemic and the high prevalence of infectious diseases, MDx platforms under a centralized format are often overloaded with samples due to the extensive testing volume. The Next Generation POC molecular system can ease the shortages of the healthcare system and the work burden of individual healthcare workers, allowing tests to be conducted with a fast set-up time and no constraints in settings. The collaboration between FIND and Pluslife Biotech will make effectual and valuable contributions to foster decentralized POC platform adoption in primary-level healthcare facilities with affordability and reliability.
