Biological Threat Detection Technology
KAPscan-AT, our Air Quality Monitoring system, detects airborne SARS-CoV-2. The Covid-19 pandemic caused extreme disruption of the entire economy and threatened to overwhelm the health systems of countries worldwide. KAPscan-AT provides the ability to act, react, and make better decisions in terms of public health and national security.
Kromek has developed the world’s first SARS-CoV-2 air quality system using a targeted molecular assay in combination with automated air sampling, processing and detection.
KAPscan-AT is fully autonomous and unmanned and combines best-in-class technologies for air sampling, biological testing, and data management.
- Highly accurate
- Highly sensitive
- Ultra-low false positive rates
- Fully automatic
- Runs autonomously for up to 48 samples
- All-in-one, fully autonomous design
KAPscan-at can be used indoors or outdoors, in static or mobile form factors and can be run continuously or as required. The device reports either the presence or absence of SARS-CoV-2 every 30 minutes.
The speed and accuracy of reporting means you no longer have to wait until someone is symptomatic in a group of people. Localised monitoring enables a detailed understanding of the spread of a disease, allows mitigating actions to be taken such as targeted testing and decontamination. These actions prevent the isolation of individuals, groups, businesses and public areas, thus ensuring minimum disruption to the economy and assures future preparedness.
