LEPABE Talk 04 - NAM4Covid19

The latest LEPABE Talk (June 25th) had PhD student Ricardo Oliveira presenting the NAM4Covid19 initiative 💡. This project, which counts with the participation of the DelNAM team, proposes a solution which allows a faster detection of SARS-CoV-2 🕒, while also avoiding the need for specialized technicians 👨‍🔬 and equipment.

NAM4COVID19 Videoconference

LEPABE , INIAV and INSA are collaborating to develop a “Nucleic acid mimic lateral flow assay (NAM-LFA) for the detection of SARS-CoV-2”. This project was approved in the FCT special call RESEARCH 4 COVID-19.

Towards the development of this solution and while assuring everyone’s safety and well-being, we have met last week via videoconference, in order to define next steps and work groups.

NAM4Covid19 approved!

NAM4Covid19 approved!

The project NAM4Covid19: "Nucleic acid mimic lateral flow assay (NAM-LFA) for the detection of Covid19" was approved in the FCT special call RESEARCH 4 COVID-19.

Coordinated by INIAV, this project counts with the collaboration of our team, led by Delnam's project coordinator, Nuno Azevedo.

The solution proposed in this project will allow a faster detection of SARS-CoV-2 (<1 hour) 🕒, when compared with the WHO recommended protocols that take more than 2 hours. It will also avoid the need for specialized technicians 👨‍🔬 and equipment (needs only a simple heat block), and hence improve SNS' testing capacity to SARS-CoV-2 detection. In collaboration with INSA – National Institute of Health Dr. Ricardo Jorge, national reference laboratory for the SARS-CoV-2 diagnosis, this project proposes to develop a rapid and accurate point-of-care testing (POCT) method for SARS-CoV-2 detection.
