Illuminating the Immune System
It can take weeks or months after infection before antibodies against certain viruses (such as HIV, HCV and others) are produced and can be detected. The time between infection and detection is called the “window period”. During the “window period”, infected persons will falsely test negative.
The SMARTube™ is a pre-analytic device (treating the blood before testing) enabling detection of various infections within days of infection using currently available antibody tests. Using the SMARTube™, enables to close the serological window period between infection and possible detection, independent of the length of the serological window period and the presence of virus in the blood.
