Coronavirus company news summary – Empatica receives CE mark for early detection of Covid-19 using wearables – BD and ImageMover announce collaboration for rapid antigen test reporting

By Chloe Kent

Empatica has received a CE certification for its wearable artificial intelligence (AI) enabled Aura system for the early detection of respiratory infections, including Covid-19, before the visible appearance of symptoms. Empatica received the CE mark for a class lla medical device, which means that Aura has met the safety and performance standards for marketability and distribution in Europe, making it the first product to receive the certification for detecting respiratory infections with intelligent wearable technology.

BD has collaborated with ImageMover, a software platform, to offer a companion mobile app that will streamline reporting of SARS-CoV-2 antigen testing based on the BD Veritor Plus System. This will be conducted across testing locations such as schools and businesses. The ImageMover app is currently available for BD Veritor Plus System customers.

Applied DNA Sciences has launched its Linea Covid-19 Selective Genomic Surveillance (SGS) Mutation Panel (the SGS Panel) to better track SARS-CoV-2 Variants of Concern. The newly developed SGS Panel detects specific mutations to focus limited next generation sequencing (NGS) capacity on the most impactful Covid-19 variants.
