First Weekly Subscription Service to Provide Early Warning of Coming Viral Outbreaks

BOSTON, Sept. 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Replikins, LLC., a Boston-based biotechnology research and analytics firm, today introduced the first weekly subscription service that can predict the onset of a viral outbreak.  Replikins Gene Surveillancetm was developed after 10 years of successful global predictive trials by the company on influenza H1N1, H2N3, H5N1, H7N9, Mers-CoV, Ebola, Zika, and other viruses.

This automated quantitative service has successfully predicted specific virus outbreaks, including their cessation, location, and mutation rates. The Figure shows an example. Preventive efforts can now begin before the actual outbreak.

The subscription rates per year for weekly Replikins Gene Surveillancetm are proportional to the number of specimens in the database at the beginning of each annual subscription for each virus requested.
