Smartphone App & Antigen Test Kit Detects Low-Viral Loads the Naked Eye Can't
Laipac Technology Inc., of Ontario, Canada, an award-winning developer of IoMT (Internet of Medical Things), has announced their partnership with UAE companies YAS Pharmaceuticals LLC and Pure Health LLC, utilizing the power of the world’s first Rapid Covid-19 Antigen Test System using Artificial Intelligence.
The European CE-IVD approved LooK SPOT AI COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test System is a smartphone-based diagnostic device with lateral flow immunoassay intended for the qualitative detection of nucleocapsid protein from SARS-CoV-2 in nasal swabs.
The LooK SPOT Artificial Intelligence Ecosystem revolutionizes medical diagnostics, enabling early disease detection with consistent and accurate results.
LooK SPOT AI COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test uses a nasal sample and has Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology to deliver real-time test results within 5 to 8 minutes with 97.4% sensitivity and 98.3% specificity in detecting the SARS-CoV-2 virus. LooK SPOT COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test can also detect the new variant of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which was first identified in the United Kingdom and South Africa.
"LooK SPOT's AI Algorithm has high accuracy and can identify the colour signal on tests in low positive cases when human eyes cannot, therefore eliminating the human error and manual process done with other Antigen tests available in the market. LooK SPOT reduces healthcare responders' cognitive load by providing accurate test results in an easy-to-read format. LooK SPOT has been designed with a tactical edge to fight COVID-19." said Diego Lai. Co-Founder and CEO of Laipac.
LooK PASS App can be downloaded from Apple or Google stores to scan the LooK COVID-19 antigen cassette before the test, and test results can be received on smartphones within 5 to 8 minutes.
Negative test results generate a QR code on the app, which may be used as a Pass to enter a facility, events, gatherings or used for transport facilities.
Via Pure Health, LooK SPOT will be able to provide full API integration with multiple IT applications and travel applications for real-time reporting.
