Why do people need frequent testing?
RNA viruses (e.g. SARS-CoV-2) are very difficult to vaccinate against because they change all the time.
We can keep up with that change as we iterating the test alongside the mutation rate - so the more we test the quicker we catch the mutations.
Antibody tests show you have antibodies (so you are immune) but you could still have the infection and give it to others
Basically regular testing is the only way forward… everything else is not going to cut it!
So how can my business provide frequent tests?
You have a location that can be used for rapid testing
We provide you on-premise test analyser and test kits materials ... at scale
FRANKD can test 90 people at a time with 1 device and have the result done in 15-30 minutes
FRANKD is integrated with the secure identity system Yoti
Your staff can get tested quickly and get results pushed directly to their phone so they can instantly know that they won't knowingly infect others or their families...
Do I need a lab or qualified staff?
Trained person and clean space for the machine and sample preparation.
The machines are simple and small and can be easily installed on premises or in a temporary location.
The tester will require PPE and the test results are then pushed to the Yoti App for secure identity management.
The Yoti App is then used by your employees to gain access to facilities and creates a visual identity of their daily test result.
Why haven't we heard about this?
Frankd are not competing for the same chemicals (reagents) as everyone else - yet we are achieving similar results.
We are scientists not big pharma with a press machine.
We will be scaling up this offer to governments once we get to 5M tests a month.
We were able to move quickly because we already had a commercially available similar testing product and a patented enzyme which cuts out the need for lab based testing
