Vector Surveillance

Our field-forward tools provide rapid, actionable onsite results, reducing response time when health and safety are on the line. From detecting deadly biosecurity agents to predicting emergent infectious diseases (EID) and containing mosquito-borne viruses and tick-borne pathogens, we are meeting the most urgent biosurveillance missions directly at the point of need, at every stage of the “data to decision” pipeline.

Designed for Defense

Rapid response depends upon rapid–and reliable–testing. Our mobile testing solutions help identify bacteria, viruses, parasites, and other vector-borne pathogens informing disease prevention efforts and providing a head-start in outbreak response and medical countermeasure development.

Mosquito-Borne Pathogens*:

  • Pan-dengue virus
  • Dengue sub-typing 1, 2, 3, 4
  • Zika virus
  • Chikungunya virus
  • Yellow fever virus
  • Pan-plasmodium

Tick-Borne Pathogens*:

  • Anaplasma phagocytophilum
  • Borrelia burgdorferi
  • Coxiella burnetii
  • Tick-borne encephalitis virus (TBEV)
  • Crimean-congo hemorrhagic fever virus (CCHV)
  • Ehrlichia & Anaplasma Spp.
  • Babesia Spp.
  • Rickettsia Spp.
  • Borrelia Spp.

Made in the USA

From our game-changing thermocyclers to our fast, highly sensitive testing kits, our products are built better–and built right here.. From blueprint to build, it’s all under one roof.

How Biomeme Stacks Up

Compared to the BioFire Razor® Mk II and FilmArray Detection Systems, Biomeme’s Franklin® ISP Platform is lighter, portable–and detects as many targets as a unit almost twice its size. With no sample preparation steps needed and confirmatory results in approximately 15 minutes to 1 hour depending on the test, the Franklin® ISP is the clear favorite.

3 Newer Approaches to Fighting Vector-Borne Diseases

Currently, vector-borne diseases account for more than 17% of all infectious diseases, causing more than 700,000 deaths...

Vector Surveillance assays are designed and optimized to detect DNA/RNA from insect or environmental samples. These tests are not designed or optimized, nor should they be used, to detect DNA/RNA from animal or human tissues.
