On-Site Rapid Vibrio Detector

A*STAR Institute of Material Research and Engineering (IMRE) has developed a Nano-particle technology for Rapid Vibrio detector in aquaculture. Vibrio species are severe bacterial pathogen found in Aquaculture that causes infections in fishes and shrimps. The technology involved a patent-pending handheld optical detector and a Nano-reagent capable of detecting the presents of Vibrio within 20 minutes compared with the conventional sampling process using PCR or similar lab-based methods, which normally take 24hrs or more from sample to results. 

This invention would help to accelerate the detection of Vibrion in Fish and Shrimps farming water, if any, for eliminating the risk of Vibrio bacterial infection in aquaculture farming and enhance food security.

 

AR BioTech is honoured to work with A*Star to bring the Vibrio Detector to the mass aquaculture market both locally and overseas.
