Sixth Wave Innovations (SIXW) has detected the U.K. and South African variants of SARS-CoV-2 using its patented technology.

The company achieved this milestone using two independent techniques: a color-based sensor and a Quartz Crystal Microbalance (QCM)-based AMIP sensor. The sensors use Sixth Wave’s patent-pending Accelerated Molecular Imprinted Polymers (AMIP).

The color-based sensor test used a pseudo-ELISA test format (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) and a commercial off-the-shelf fluorescent dye.

Both the QCM and fluorescent-based sensors demonstrated significant signal compared to the negative control.

The company believes its Molecular Imprinted Polymer technology has the potential to keep pace with the virus’ constantly changing diagnostic environment.

Sixth Wave intends to use the colorimetric sensor as a feature in a wide range of AMIPs Virus rapid-detection devices. Prospective products include the company’s SmartMask offerings, smart-clothing and PPE applications, airborne sensors, breathalyzers, ELISA-based technologies, and cartridge and lateral flow designs.

The company is not making any express or implied claims that its product has the ability to eliminate, cure, contain, or detect COVID-19 (or SARS-2 coronavirus) at a commercial level at this time.

Sixth Wave is a nanotechnology company focused on extraction and detection of target substances at the molecular level.

Sixth Wave Innovations (SIXW) is down by 1.67 per cent and is currently trading at $0.295 per share as of 9:30 am ET.
