Centrillion Announces High Throughput SARS-CoV-2 Genomic Sequencing Chips and Services for Variant Tracking

Centrillion’s sequencing chips for high throughput SARS-CoV-2 variant detection are faster and more accurate than other methods

PALO ALTO, CA, UNITED STATES, April 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Centrillion Technologies, an innovator in DNA chip technologies, is announcing the world-wide availability of its VirusHunter™ QuadCore chips for SARS-CoV-2 whole genome sequencing and multi-pathogen detection. The chip set contains probes for sequencing the SARS-CoV-2 whole genome, for cross-validating detected common variants, and for detecting and sequencing other common respiratory viruses. The chips are packaged onto plates for the simultaneous processing of 8-96 samples.

QuadCore chips can detect any type of sample including RT-PCR products or samples processed using random-primers for total RNA amplification. The chip set has been tested by collaborators and early access customers since last June. The initial assessment of the chip technology has been published, and the release of the product comes with a much-improved assay protocol. The recent publication (https://pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021/acs.langmuir.0c02927) uses an RT-PCR based method of sample preparation with multiplex tiling primers developed by the ARTIC Network. The Centrillion assay requires less hands-on time and improved throughput compared to other sequencing methods. It is a solution designed for monitoring a large number of samples for viral evolution and variant detection.

Dr. Jeremy Edwards, Professor and Director at the Center for Biomedical Engineering, University of New Mexico and corresponding author of publication, stated, “since the submission of the paper, the technology has further evolved with improved accuracy and sensitivity. The QuadCore sequencing technology is the best available technology for a large-scale viral genome surveillance and monitoring viral variants. This could not only help control this pandemic, but also prevent future pandemics.”

Centrillion is also launching SARS-CoV-2 whole genome sequencing services for research and clinical labs. This service provides variant tracking data and is available through www.centrilliontech.com. The assay offers increased sensitivity (Ct Value up to 32) with increased coverage (>99.9%) and accuracy (>99.99%).

“As soon as the SARS-CoV-2 genomic sequence became available last January, our team has been developing and validating chip-based whole viral genome sequencing methods,” stated Wei Zhou, Founder and CEO. “These products are capable of rapid detection, high accuracy, and high sensitivity. We hope that the new generation of chip technology can help contain this pandemics and monitor emerging pathogens.”

Signal Hill. Saguaro National Park-West 2

The ancient Hohokams created petroglyphs that connect you to Southern Arizona's past.

TUCSON, AZ, UNITED STATES, April 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Long before Facebook, TikTok, and the Internet, the first settlers in the Tucson Mountains had their own methods of social networking. Native Americans, called the Hohokams, created Petroglyphs. Petroglyphs are rock carvings made by pecking directly on the rock surface using a stone chisel and stone hammer. When the desert varnish (or patina) on the surface was chipped off, the lighter rock underneath was exposed, creating the petroglyph.

The petroglyphs in the Tucson Mountains were left by the ancient Hohokams as early as AD 850. They used rock art to tell stories or record important events. Other purposes could have been boundary markers for hunting or landmarks and clan symbols. They also included fertility and spiritual symbols along with solstice and calendar markers. Images and icons are often animals, humans, plants, astrological objects, and abstract designs, including spirals and squiggly lines. Historians and archaeologists can speculate what they mean, but the actual stores are lost with the people that drew them. The name Hohokam is interpreted
as mean "those who have vanished." And unfortunately, the true interpretation of their petroglyphs vanished with them.

There are 21 known petroglyph sites in the Tucson Mountains. Three of the most popular and accessible sites are detailed below.

The Signal Hill Petroglyphs site is located in the Saguaro National Park – West. There are dozens of images viewable from a short trail and viewing area. Look at the images up to the left as you start to climb the trail; they are commonly missed. A large spiral image, a favorite among photographers, is at the top of the hill's viewing area. The panoramic view of Wasson and Sanford Peak over the dense Saguaro forest is incredible.

The Redemptorist Renewal Center site is located on private property and is a unique location for solitude, reflection, and prayer. It is estimated there are between 800 and 1,000 individual petroglyphs on the hill. A large spiral petroglyph is a calendar marker that displays sunlight interactions on the summer solstice and the spring and autumn equinox days. Please check-in at the Center office or call 520-744-3400 before visiting.

The Kings Canyon Trail site is located within the Saguaro National Park – West. The trailhead is located across the street near the entrance to the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum. The trail is an old mining road, and the petroglyphs are about a mile up the trail before the Mam-AGah Picnic Area. The picnic area has a stone building built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the early 1030s. There are dozens of images, but the site is not marked and can be easily missed.

PROTECT AND RESPECT THE PETROGLYPHS. Please do not touch the petroglyphs. The oil from your hand can harm the image. Please stay on the trail and do not climb on the rocks.

NICO.LAB raises AU$13 million in Pre-IPO investment

NICO.LAB has an end-to-end artificial intelligence solution, StrokeViewer, that helps physicians to provide stroke patients with the right treatment, in time.

MELBOURNE, VICTORIA, AUSTRALIA, April 22, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The MedTech scale-up NICO.LAB has just closed AU$13 million in a Pre-IPO round led by Canaccord Genuity Australia. Founded in 2015 following the renowned MR CLEAN trial in The Netherlands[1], NICO.LAB developed an end-to-end artificial intelligence solution, StrokeViewer, that ensures stroke patients recieve the right treatment as fast as possible. NICO.LAB believes connecting human and artificial intelligence will revolutionise emergency care.

StrokeViewer is a clinical-decision support tool that combines artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms and a communication platform to help stroke experts make faster, well-informed treatment decisions. Even today, too many patients do not receive the right treatment on time. A recent study showed that receiving treatment 1 minute earlier results in 1.3 days of additional disability-free life and saves on average €309 of healthcare costs in the Netherlands [2]. Stroke incidence and associated costs are rising drastically due to an ageing population and increasingly unhealthy lifestyles. StrokeViewer allows physicians to diagnose patients remotely, on any mobile or desktop device at any time of day, helping hospitals to cope with the rise in stroke patients. The secure cloud-based infrastructure of the solution makes implementation straightforward, requiring no additional hardware.

Since 2015, NICO.LAB has evolved from a group of academic researchers and physicians to an international team spanning 3 continents. NICO.LAB attracts top talent from across the world to their Amsterdam Headquarters where all technology and algorithms are developed. The year 2020 marked many milestones for NICO.LAB; they received both FDA clearance and US reimbursement (New Technology Add-on Payment) for StrokeViewer, entered new markets including the UK, Germany and Australia and proved the clinical impact of their solution on patient outcome.

Merel Boers, NICO.LAB co-founder and CEO, “We have the absolute A-list of Australia’s leading institutional funds and family offices on board to back us in our mission. For many patients the right treatment comes too late… Together with our new partners and investors, we are on a mission to empower physicians worldwide to provide every patient with the right treatment, on time!”

The newly raised funds will be used to accelerate the development of NICO.LAB’s artificial intelligence solutions as well as fund the international growth of the company, to help them achieve their mission of empowering physicians worldwide to provide patients with the right treatment, in time.

About
NICO.LAB was founded in 2015 as a spin-off from the Amsterdam University Medical Center in the Netherlands and has offices in Australia, Europe and the United States. An international team of researchers, developers and physicians connects human & artificial intelligence to empower physicians in emergency care with end-to-end solutions. StrokeViewer consists of a comprehensive set of tools to support the entire stroke workflow. Local availability of StrokeViewer functionality is subject to applicable CE marking, TGA and FDA approval (the actual status is on www.strokeviewer.nico-lab.com).

WHY: The CUNY Conference on Climate Change Education (C4E) at LaGuardia Community College is the first conference focused solely on the teaching of climate change and is a necessary first step if mandatory CCE is introduced in NY.

In January 2020, a bill (S7341) was introduced in the New York State Senate, sponsored by Senator Andrew Gounardes (D-22nd District) to amend the education law. If enacted, this bill will require climate change curriculum in all elementary and secondary schools and make New York one of the few states in the nation mandating Climate Change Education (CCE).

WHO: In order to open the discussion as widely as possible, this FREE conference welcomes K-12 and post-secondary institution educators, informal educators, and representatives of non-governmental organizations and government agencies. Conference participants will learn about what other educators are teaching, how they are teaching it, discuss best practices, and will develop the network necessary to effectively provide CCE in New York.

FUNDING: A CUNY Interdisciplinary Climate Crisis Research Grant is making this conference possible. LaGuardia Environmental Sciences Professor and Environmental Sciences Program Director Holly Porter-Morgan, PhD, is lead PI. She is joined by co-PIs from throughout CUNY and from the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University.

New Akathisia Awareness Video Can Save Lives

Akathisia Awareness Saves Lives

Ask your doctor if the drug you're prescribed can cause akathisia.

Prescription drugs can cause akathisia even when taken as directed.

A new public health video provides critical info about akathisia, a medication-induced disorder that can cause suicide, self-harm, and violence.

Adverse drug effects are the fourth leading cause of death, but together we can save lives by making akathisia a household word.”

— Wendy Dolin, MISSD Founder

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, USA, April 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — A new public health video educates healthcare professionals, consumers, and caregivers about akathisia, a critical adverse drug effect that can cause death. Hundreds of different prescription drugs can precipitate akathisia, yet the public is often left in the dark, and many doctors fail to discuss the risks.

“Akathisia is a disorder, induced as a side effect of medications, which can cause a person to experience such intense inner restlessness that the sufferer is driven to violence, self-harm, or suicide. It can occur when stopping, starting, or changing the dosage or type of certain medications," said Wendy Dolin, Founder of the Medication-Induced Suicide Prevention and Education Foundation in Memory of Stewart Dolin (MISSD).

MISSD released "Akathisia: In Their Own Words" during April because it's a month that spotlights health. "America celebrated National Public Health Day, the UK held Parkinson's Awareness Week, and World Health Day was recognized everywhere. Like our new video, these efforts aim to educate the public about various health issues to help people live better and longer lives. Adverse drug effects are the fourth leading cause of death, but together we can save lives by making akathisia a household word."

Drugs prescribed for asthma, high blood pressure, depression, and acne are just a few of the many different types of medications that can cause akathisia and iatrogenic death. (Iatrogenic means caused by medication or medical treatment.) MISSD's educational videos highlight akathisia symptoms so that people who may be suffering–or have a loved one showing signs of akathisia–can seek help before it's too late. Symptoms can include agitation, insomnia, cognitive confusion, skin crawling, and difficulty or inability to stop moving. The foundation recommends that the word, akathisia, specifically be mentioned as a possibility during doctors' appointments, emergency room visits, and hospital admission.

MISSD, a 501c3 non-profit organization, honors the memory of akathisia victims through awareness and education and aims to ensure people suffering from akathisia are accurately diagnosed so that needless deaths are prevented. The foundation is an authentic grassroots nonprofit and accepts no funding from the pharmaceutical industry. All MISSD resources are free, including a podcast series and accredited, one-hour online course open to all. See MISSD.co for more info.

APTT3X™ Formulation Proves Effective in COVID-19 Brazil Clinical Trial

A non-prescription intranasal application of APTT3X™ formulation will DECREASE the risk of contracting COVID-19 by 150% .

APTT3X™ is a self-administered process of swabbing the lower passages of the nose, represents a scalable preventative solution that could slow the spread of COVID-19 on a global scale”

— Dr. Ernesto Cesar Pinto Leal Junior, ELJ Consultancy

ROCKWALL, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, April 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The efficacy of the APTT3X™ formulation has been validated in a just-completed clinical trial conducted in Brazil under “Black Flag” conditions. The data makes clear the formulation adds an additional layer of protection and decreases the viral load of exposure. The results of the trial continue to support the clinical field data that has been accumulated over the last 14 months with over 2,500 individuals applying APTT3X™ to decrease their risk of contracting COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2).

Advanced Penetration Technology, LLC, (APT) a Texas- and Indiana-based company (www.aptdeliverysystem.com ) specializing in innovative healthcare solutions for physicians and patients has received compelling validation of the protective and preventative nature of the intranasal application of its APTT3X™ formulation against the infectivity of COVID-19.

Conducted under the direction or of Dr. Ernesto Leal, sponsored by the Nove de Julho University, Sao Paulo at the Santa Casa de Misericórdia de Porto Alegre Hospital, a randomized, triple blinded clinical trial was performed in Brazil, in the state of Rio Grande de Sul. Rio Grande de Sul is dealing with the highest level of COVID-19 infectivity, hospitalizations and deaths in the country. The entirety of the trial took place under BLACK FLAG warnings from the Brazilian public health system.

Multiple variants of SARS-CoV-2 were present across this geographic region where the trial took place. The trial results demonstrated there was a DECREASED infection risk of 150% for individuals when using a single, daily application of the intranasal APTT3X™ formulation.

Importantly, APTT3X™ decreased the rate of COVID-19 infection by sixty percent (60%), compared to the placebo group. This decrease in the rate of infection is similar to those observed by some of the current available COVID-19 vaccines, such as Johnson & Johnson (66%), Sinovac Biotech (50.4% – Brazilian trial), and CanSino Biologics (65.7%). The APTT3X™ also demonstrated a high level of safety with very few slight adverse effects. It is important to highlight that most of these adverse effects were related to inadequate use of the swab applicator and not due to the APTT3X™ formulation.

“ Applying the APTT3X™ as a prevention is a self-administered process of swabbing the lower passages of the nose. This formulation represents a scalable preventative solution that could slow the spread of COVID-19 on a global scale”, states Dr. Ernesto Cesar Pinto Leal Junior, ELJ Consultancy.

Link to the COVID-19 Preventative Brazil Clinical Trial:

“In addition to the trial conducted in Brazil, there are currently more than 2,500 individuals using the APTT3X™ formulation within the USA who have used the product for 12 -14 months as a preventative strategy, decreasing their viral load of exposure. Many are first responders and high risk individuals. Of those users, we have only been made aware of 7 cases of individuals who used the APTT3X™ formulation then tested positive with COVID-19. As noted in the Brazil clinical trial, these breakthrough cases of COVID-19 infection resulted in mild cases, when the person was using the APTT3X™ formulation daily.” said Dr. Brian J. Huber, CEO/President of PFTH, LLC the parent company of APT, LLC

“The patent pending, proprietary APT™ formulation continues to demonstrate dramatic improvements in the efficacy of topical active pharmaceutical ingredients used within our formulation. In this case, the APT™ formulation combined with Tetracycline 3% provides an important option for those who desire another layer of protection against rapidly developing variants (mutations) of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The APTTM formulation’s unique dual-actions of biophysical and biochemical destruction of SARS-CoV-2 and other viruses will change the trajectory of preventative discussions on a global scale,” states Dr. Brian J. Huber, CEO/President of PFTH, LLC the parent company of APT, LLC.

Current COVID vaccines are public health necessities. However, equally important is adding additional layers of protection, particularly given widely documented evidence of viral mutations, as well as patient side effects , as all vaccines have been scaled. There is also a global inequality of access to vaccines. The APTT3X™ formulation can be easily scaled, delivered and utilized in large populations to decrease the viral spread of COVID-19. This type of preventative product is desperately needed across the globe.

Proven safety and efficacy of decreasing viral loads of exposure leads to decrease infectivity and spread of viruses amongst a population. No needles, no injections, scalable and self administered once to twice daily. These steps are critical to stabilizing the long term battle against COVID-19 pandemic in the USA and globally.

Caroline Eick of The Center for Heart-Mind Coherence to be Featured on Close Up Radio

AUSTIN, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, April 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Trauma, in childhood through young adulthood, can lead to life-long health and relational problems. But we can learn to work with the distressing emotional energies that keep us reliving the past, and develop the emotional resilience to navigate distress with efficacy, transform past hurts into wisdom, and experience peace and freedom.

At the Center for Heart-Mind Coherence, trauma is understood as a person’s reaction to a distressing event, shaped by genetic and cross-generationally transmitted predispositions, as well as the availability or lack of physical, emotional, and psychological resources, rather than the event itself. Faced with disempowerment and overwhelm, the person adopts coping mechanisms that at the time are the smartest responses available to her. For example, a child repeatedly ignored when crying in the crib, and later ignored by parents when reaching out for connection, may learn, as a coping strategy, to stop asking for help altogether and become completely self-reliant, developing the core belief, or imprint, that she is not worthy of help or attention. At the same time, she continues to crave what she never received—trustworthy support. The originally smart strategy of not expecting any help in order to face the distressing experience of abandonment, eventually becomes maladaptive, particularly when seeking connection and intimacy in relationships. Moreover, it develops an unconscious physical and mental dependency on some distressing emotions: loneliness, fear, anxiety, shame, perhaps even guilt are some examples. That is because our body becomes dependent on the chemical effects produced by repeated distressing emotions (which affect hormones, the immune system, respiratory and circulatory systems, and more). The body then impulsively seeks the chemical effect of those distressing emotions, leading us to repeat, over and over again, the self-defeating behaviors that elicit and are elicited by those emotions.

Caroline Eick is the owner and co-founder of The Center for Heart-Mind Coherence.

Caroline says: “At the Center we help clients transmute the blocked emotional energies fueling the self-defeating imprints that keep us reliving traumas of the past and keep us in repetitive survival modes of flight, fight, freeze or fix. Negative imprints are activated and strengthened by core emotional addictions to security, power-control, sensation and suffering/struggle. Each core emotional addiction is characterized by a particular cluster of stuck emotions that not only color the lenses through which we perceive reality, but establish the baselines for what we identify as emotionally familiar and acceptable, often against our best judgments.”

We help our clients through heart-centered and inter-relational approaches that integrate spiritual wisdom across the ages with the latest research in neuroscience and interpersonal neurobiology.

Kongsberg Geospatial IRIS enables a single operator to control multiple Flirtey Eagle drones simultaneously for Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) Operations.

The Kongsberg IRIS technology is a key part of Flirtey's best-in-class technology for last-mile drone delivery.”

— Flirtey Founder and CEO Matthew Sweeny

OTTAWA, ON, CANADA, April 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Kongsberg Geospatial, developer of the TerraLens Geospatial Soft Ware Development Kit (SDK), and Flirtey, the pioneer and a leader in the commercial drone delivery industry in the US, announced today that the Kongsberg Geospatial IRIS airspace situational awareness application has been implemented by Flirtey within their autonomous software platform that conducts BVLOS autonomous flight operations. Flirtey has conducted more than 6,000 flights to date.

Flirtey recently announced that it had completed the technology to certify and expand U.S. production of its best-in-class autonomous drone delivery system for last-mile delivery. Flirtey's technology solves the last-mile delivery problem with faster, lower cost, and more convenient delivery, which takes vehicles off the roads, reduces CO2 emissions and increases the overall safety of the transport system.

The Kongsberg Geospatial IRIS airspace visualization technology enables multiple drones and sensor feeds to be monitored simultaneously by a single remote operator and provides real-time calculation of aircraft separation and communications to enable BVLOS operations. Built on Kongsberg Geospatial’s industry leading TerraLens SDK, IRIS provides advanced real-time 2D and 3D visualization of all airborne track and weather data, as well as cues, alerts and warnings to enable a single operator to monitor the complex airspace environment.

"Flirtey is now taking pre-orders for its autonomous drone delivery systems, which enable businesses to operate their own logistics by providing store-to-door drone delivery to their customers to unlock lower delivery costs and billions in potential new revenue. The Kongsberg IRIS technology is a key part of Flirtey's best-in-class technology for last-mile drone delivery, and Kongsberg Geospatial’s experience powering Air Traffic Control Systems worldwide, as well as U.S. and Australian Navy combat systems give Flirtey and our customers great confidence," said Flirtey Founder and CEO Matthew Sweeny. Flirtey is focused on completing the FAA’s certification process, in addition to scaling its operations in New Zealand (where the company’s technology already has regulatory certification) and expanding US production of delivery drones to meet growing demand.

“We’re very pleased to be working with an industry leader in UAS last-mile delivery like Flirtey” said Ranald McGillis, President of Kongsberg Geospatial. “We’ve worked closely with them to implement our technology and their FAA certification will be a testament to their world leading capabilities.”
