Recent Omicron-Related COVID-19 Surge Fuels Demand For Biotia’s COVID-DX Amongst Researchers And Public Health Authorities
Biotia, Inc., a health-tech company in Brooklyn, NY, is building the leading microbial sequencing database coupled with AI software for precision infectious disease detection and diagnosis. Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Biotia has been developing innovative software and diagnostic technologies to provide researchers and public health authorities the tools to fight the spread of SARS-CoV-2 and its variants.
“At Biotia, we support rapid public health responses to the continuously evolving SARS-CoV-2 virus. Our COVID-DX software produces actionable reporting that supports genomic surveillance of Omicron and other Delta-like variants, while informing regulatory agencies to prevent further spread and control the pandemic”, says Dr. Dorottya Nagy-Szakal, Chief Medical Officer at Biotia.
COVID-DX, Biotia’s FDA vetted, commercial grade software platform provides comprehensive variant profiling of SARS-CoV-2, including Omicron. The platform has seen strong adoption by clinical researchers worldwide due to its user-friendly portal, powerful reporting, and versatility. "We built COVID-DX to enable researchers to seamlessly incorporate rapidly emerging new variants into their analysis" says Dr. David Danko, Director of Bioinformatics at Biotia.
Operating out of their Brooklyn-based CLIA lab, Biotia offers a complete solution for COVID-19 testing including rapid diagnostics, sequencing services, and software analytics. For more information, please visit biotio.io/coviddx.
