Our technology

We use a universal labelling system to light up everything in our sample, image the sample using super-resolution fluorescence microscopy and analyse the images in our neural network. The network is trained to recognise specific species and strains of viruses, bacteria and other pathogens and can identify pathogens in the sample within seconds.
