Alveo's Portable, Rapid Molecular Diagnostic Platform Proves Unshakable in Rigorous Ruggedness Tests


Neither a one-meter drop nor constant motion and vibration prevent the device from completing tests with near 100% accuracy, proving its utility at Point of Needtm in virtually any environment

ALAMEDA, Calif., June 18, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Alveo Technologies, Inc. (Alveo), a leader in molecular sensing and diagnostics with its proprietary technology platform, today announced the results of rigorous testing that demonstrate the ruggedness of its portable molecular testing platform. Whether it fell from a significant height, endured temperature and humidity extremes, or was subjected to jarring vibrations that mimic vehicle transportation of virtually any type ? the device continued to complete tests and produce accurate results.

Alveo's platform has been designed to provide accurate, rapid test results at the point of need. The company tested its platform to demonstrate that it can perform reliably in harsh, real-world conditions, where markets, applications and use cases previously did not exist due to this unmet market need and requirement.

Specifically, the Alveo platform underwent the following tests:

The results demonstrate that the Alveo platform can accurately perform tests in the field, under the most extreme of conditions. In the environmental resilience, drop, and cleaning tests, the device completed tests with 100% accuracy, and in the movement and vibration test, it also performed at 100% accuracy when the LED was facing up. When the LED was facing down during the vibration and movement test, it completed tests with 94% accuracy. The company is actively working on its next generation platform, enabling 360-degree capability with 100% accuracy.

"These tests thoroughly demonstrate our platform's ability to provide consistent performance at the point of need, whether testing takes place in fields, on farms and in animal pens, remote locations, disaster zones, and beyond," said Shaun Holt, CEO at Alveo. "Our rugged design and innovative molecular detection technology make it possible for healthcare providers, veterinarians, growers, and public health officials to obtain rapid, accurate results at the point of need, enabling them to take immediate action to treat and contain diseases, bacteria, fungi, and other contaminants. Alveo is leading the way by delivering a system that works in harsh environments where fast, easy testing without compromise is needed most.  This study verifies that we can produce PCR-like results for a whole new set of applications, use cases, and a much broader user base than traditional molecular diagnostic methods."
