SmartSense system unveiled - for instant bird flu detection
British Biotechnology research and development company BioWarn LLC
has unveiled its SmartSense biological substance detection system which can
instantly detect the presence of the H5N1 bird flu
SmartSense, which also detects HIV, tuberculosis, MRSA, E.coli, anthrax and
smallpox, among others, works by capturing the electronic signature of a virus
or biological agent, which it then instantly recognises. Once SmartSense has
identified the presence of a virus, those operating the system are alerted.
According to the company's chief executive officer and board
chairman, Dr James P Wade Jr, by using SmartSense an outbreak of human avian flu
can be detected and isolated in its early stages so that prevention, vaccines,
and treatment can immediately be administered.
