High-precision and highly efficient diagnostic systems for detecting COVID-19 disease, purchased in China by Vadym Novynskyi's Foundation in Honor of the Intercession of the Most Holy Mother of God, arrived in Ukraine.
Three iPonatic systems have been customs cleared and sent to healthcare facilities of Kherson, Mariupol, and Kryvyi Rih cities.
The systems use the PCR (polymerase chain reaction) technology. In addition to the diagnosis of COVID-19 coronavirus, they allow the detection of respiratory pathogens of influenza A and B virus, respiratory syncytial virus, adenovirus, human rhinovirus, and mycoplasma pneumonia.
The advantages of the system include a shortened testing time cycle (up to 40 minutes), intelligent data processing (voice prompts, automated analysis of the results, etc.). In addition, the system does not have any restrictions in terms of the location/placement area of the device and the testing process. Reagents can be stored at room temperature. The systems are recommended by the World Health Organization. Their results can be integrated into the national healthcare information system, and their integration with eHealth is also possible.
