MISSION AND VISION

Develop breakthrough diagnostic tests that reveal susceptibility or resistance for a variety of viral infections such as the SARS (Coronavirus), MERS, Swine Flu, Influenza and others, as well as to develop and bring novel, personalized, highly effective prevention and treatment methods for these devastating diseases

OUR SOLUTION

Development of a novel genetic test to identify who is at high risk and who is not for SARS-CoV-2 infection, the virus that causes COVID-19

Why the VirTIGO Test is Different

There are 3 different types of relevant tests for SARS-CoV-2

Diagnostic Test:

“Is the virus present in the patient TODAY?”

  1. Looks for the virus itself in people with acute symptoms
  2. Used in people with symptoms to check if illness is due to COVID-19

Antibody Test:

“Has the patient been exposed IN THE PAST?”

  1. Looks for antibodies that the patient developed during an infection
  2. Used in people who had symptoms to see if they developed immunity

VirTIGO Genetic Test:

“Is the person at risk IN THE FUTURE?”

  1. Looks for genetic markers in the person’s DNA that predict risk/protection
  2. Used in people irrespective of symptoms
