Project Gumnuts is a patent pending diagnostic testing kit for the detection of Covid-19.
The DNA aptamer technology is primed to recognise the spike protein of Covid-19. Being synthetic, the use of DNA aptamers provides an accurate encoding with an active agent that is low-cost, durable and readily lends itself to mass production, all of which are critical and valuable advantages when compared to other testing methods (including Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) and rapid Antigen tests).
After a minty mouthwash, Project Gumnuts takes a non-invasive saliva sample and uses spectrophotometry for the analysis, delivering accurate reproducible results that are available within the hour.
The Project Gumnuts testing kit works in synergy with our Teman Sehat (Health Buddy) mobile apps to deliver a better testing and healthcare experience, which ultimately also acts as a passport to allow users to manage, track, trace and travel as required.
Teman Sehat (Health Buddy)
Teman Sehat (Health Buddy) is a set of mobile applications (apps) that work with the Project Gumnuts testing kit to deliver an effective way for users to book, pay and manage their diagnostic testing experience for Covid-19, and other pathogens. Health partners are able to load patient data and testing results securely and privately through the apps.
Users may also utilise the Teman Sehat – Pengguna (Health Buddy – Person) app as their own digital pass to facilitate access to entertainment and sporting events, businesses and travel requirements as the need arises. Any location and other points of access can provide the Health Buddy mobile apps with incentives and promotions to encourage proactive testing with their visitors, helping drive customer traffic whilst safeguarding their place of business.
