Report by U.S. Government Research Scientists Confirms Bio Terror Threat Detection Capabilities of PathSensor’s CANARY Technology

PathSensors: Identifying pathogens at the speed of light

PathSensor’s CANARY technology has outstanding sensitivity for Ricin and Anthrax detection.

Baltimore biotech firm, PathSensors, Inc., announced today that in a published evaluation of multiple immunoassay-based threat detection technologies by researchers from the Pacific National Northwest Laboratory (PNNL), a U.S. Department of Energy Laboratory, PathSensors’ CANARY® biosensor threat detection technology was found to have the best level of detection (LOD) for two bio terror threats, Bacillus anthracis (anthrax) and Ricin.

The report, “Evaluation of Immunoassays and General Biological Indicator Tests for Field Screening of Bacilus anthracis and Ricin,” compared fourteen immunoassays from ten different technology providers, including PathSensor’s CANARY biosensor immunoassay and PathSensor’s Zephyr assay sample reader.

A measure of the effectiveness of bio terror and bio threat detection technologies is the technology’s tested “limit of detection,” which indicates the level of sensitivity of the technology and its ability to avoid false positives (false alarms). A lower limit of detection indicates a better level of threat detection sensitivity and…
