Intro to SPRINGBOARD®
The company is a start-up biotech company with the aim to improve influenza virus diagnosis.The product is a new type of rapid inlfuenza virus diagnostic test using novel technologies
Influenza virus infects around 10% of the world population every year, and the global influenza diagnostics market size is USD 1.91 billion (2015). However there is a performance problem with the dominant diagnostic tests for point-of-care use, because independent research shows that on average they have a 50% performance sensitivity.
