VirusTrack

VirusTrack Technique


 

Low-Cost, Reliable and Large-Scale Virus Surveillance

 

VirusTrack Sampling Tube (preloaded with PSAP beads)


 

Encapsulation and Stablization of Viruses by PSAP Beads

 

The PSAP beads can extract and stabilize viruses in water samples for long-term storage at room temperature, thus bypassing the reliance on cold chain and enabling low-cost virus surveillance.
