Mologic, Institut Pasteur de Dakar to Develop Ebola Rapid Diagnostic Test

Mologic will apply ultra-sensitive lateral flow technology developed at its Centre for Advanced Rapid Diagnostics and lead product development and manufacturing. Senegal-based Institut Pasteur de Dakar will lead test validation in collaboration with the Institut National de Recherche en Biologie (INRB) in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). The collaborators anticipate manufacturing the test in the UK and in Senegal at the Institut Pasteur de Dakar.

Mologic and Institut Pasteur de Dakar staff are currently validating three rapid diagnostic test prototypes prior to initiating a trial with INRB in the DRC during March 2020.
