Biological threats in densely populated environments
As observed during COVID, infectious diseases have the potential to spread incredibly rapidly in densely populated cities or highly attended events. With so many people going here, there and everywhere, it is difficult to track and contain accidental or pathogen outbreaks effectively.
Kromek’s fully automated, portable and autonomous biosequencer is design to complete DNA sequencing in-field, negating the need for additional infrastructure and constant expert attention. Positioned and then networked from key sites, such as train stations, hospitals, stadiums or even in remote locations, actionable intelligence is delivered rapidly to remote decision-makers and civilian health authorities. As a result, city-wide, regional or even national responses can be implemented in the appropriate timeframe to manage the outbreak.
