Integrated Nano-Technologies (INT) predicts that its portable biological agent detection system could be ready for commercialisation in early 2004. The BioDetect system is a low cost, electronic-based, DNA detection system that can test for agents, such as anthrax, smallpox and SARS in minutes, says the Rochester, New York firm. Weighing around 12lbs, the simple-to-operate device can be used independently or integrated into existing systems, and requires minimal sample preparation. It consists of an electronic analyser and single-use, disposable test cards. It can test for hundreds of targets from a single sample. The system is expected to undergo testing shortly.
