Sanofi and Luminostics Collaborate to Develop Smartphone-Based Self-Testing Solution for COVID-19

Shots:

  • The collaboration leverages Luminostics’ technology and Sanofi’s global distribution network to ensure WW availability of the test, subject to relevant regulatory approvals. The focus of the collaboration is to develop a consumer-based test that can detect the COVID-19
  • Luminostics’ technology utilizes a consumer smartphone’s optics, controlled by an iOS/Android app paired with a reusable adapter, in combination with glow-in-the-dark nanochemistry and signal processing AI. The OTC self-testing solution is expected to be ready before the end of 2020
  • The rapid self-testing solution will eliminate the current need for HCPs or laboratory tests. The collaboration follows Sanofi’s collaboration with GSK for COVID-19 vaccine and initiation of clinical studies evaluating Kevzara and Plaquenil in patients suffering from COVID-19
