  • Validation process of diagnostic testing for infectious diseases

    The validation of diagnostic assays is a long procedure of inter-related processes that assures all steps and reagents are optimised. The scope of this procedure is to detect the analyte with accuracy and precision and identify the thresholds for each parameter. Three areas must be assessed: reproducibility (i.e., the test always shows the same result for the same sample), precision (i.e., the variability within results), and accuracy (i.e., the extent to which the results reflect the true situation). Once these are known, another three parameters need to be measured: scientific validity, analytical and clinical performance, guaranteeing data robustness and reliability. The comparisons are done against a widely approved older technique, called “golden standard”.

  • Economic Impact by using faster pathogen detection methods

    The Economic Burden of Disease The current COVID-19 pandemic made evident to all that Health is linked to Economy with tighter links than we might think. Health is not the power drainer of national budgets worldwide; it is also the stabilizer of economic growth and abundance. It is a reciprocal equation and is not only limited to humans. A deadly herd epidemic is enough to devastate a nation’s economy for years; an infected grooming product is enough to bring down big economic giants; a food poisoning can defame a large food chain and result in huge pay-outs.
