The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention lists 13 high-priority, weaponizable bacterial agents, and Prime Alert detects all of them in one test. Prime Alert, from GenPrime Inc., delivers on-site results in minutes, and is portable, reliable, rugged and decontamination-friendly. It can detect anthrax, plague, ricin, Typhoid Fever, botulinum and other biological threats. Prime Alert is composed of a reader and five test kits that contain all the solutions and sampling tools needed to verify a potential threat. OR (EMPN) To mitigate the unnecessary expense of a full-fledged HAZ-MAT response to false alarms, GenPrime Inc. has developed Prime Alert Biodetection System - a broad-screening biodetection test that quickly detects suspicious levels of bacteria, bacterial spores and many viruses with one test, on-site. Prime Alert Biodetection System can detect all 13 high-priority, weaponizable bacterial agents identified by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) with one test. Prime Alert Biodetection System employs a fluorescent detection technology that quickly determines whether a suspicious powder sample contains suspicious levels of microbes, including bacteria and bacterial spores. The system works by adding dye to a sample of an unknown powder. If the sample contains a component found in all microbes, the dye will bind to it and become fluorescent. The microbes can then be detected using the system's ruggedized hand-held instrument.
