TestTheTeam is a service of BioSpyder Technologies. Based in Carlsbad, California, BioSpyder markets kits and services to U.S. government agencies, research institutions, and private companies. One of their largest contracts is with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to perform toxicology screening.
BioSyder is the developer of TempO-SPan which is an adaptation of BioSpyder Technologies TempO-Seq® technology. TempO-Seq is commonly used for high throughput screens and biomarker detection programs that have the objective of profiling thousands of genes in samples. TempO-SPan adapts TempO-Seq by adding a biological barcode to each sample early in the assay, and then targeting a small number of genes focused on relatively small viral genomes, as is the case when detecting COVID-19.
TempO-Span SARS-CoV-2 assay has been validated by external labs and submitted to the U.S. FDA for an Emergency Use Application (EUA). BioSpyder is offering COVID-19 testing services to the public in the United Kingdom through its spin-out BioClavis - www.bioclavis.co.uk.
