Safeguarding Global Health

Sentinel-Enabled Biosecurity Preparedness for a Safer Future

Avicena’s Biosecurity Preparedness solution enables nations and organisations to build resilient and scalable systems for rapid identification and containment of potential outbreaks.

A Continuing Need to Safeguard Our Lives & Economies

As the world becomes more interconnected, the risk of pandemics causing widespread devastation has never been higher. 

The COVID-19 crisis revealed the inadequacy of global biosecurity infrastructure and the urgent need for more agile systems to meet new threats.

Recognising the importance of One Health for human and animal biosecurity preparedness, governments are now investing in creating advanced solutions for robust defences against future threats.

Avicena Sentinel Enables Biosecurity Preparedness

Avicena Sentinel is the world’s most scalable rapid molecular diagnostics platform, offering a daily surge capability of up to 100,000 tests.

The fully automated solution also offers flexible and on-demand sample loading, ensuring cost-effective testing for various volumes. 

Sentinel’s comfortable saliva or nasal sample self-collection takes less than 20 seconds, and can be adapted for alternative sample matrices.

As a platform based on LAMP, a sensitive technology similar to PCR, Sentinel can readily adapt to existing tests for a wide variety of human and animal pathogens
