|Fully Automated BioDetection
The FilmArray is able to identify, in a closed system, dozens of the most lethal viruses and bacteria, including emerging infectious diseases. The easy-to-use, syringe-loaded system represents the next generation in automated detection systems.
PNNL HazMat Demonstration Using a Polymerase Chain Reaction System to Screen Suspicious Powders
Use of a commercially available polymerase chain reaction (PCR) system for screening a powder sample is demonstrated. Note: This is only a demonstration and required personal protective equipment (PPE) is not being worn. Actual required PPE will depend on the specific situation.
FilmArray by BioFire
The FilmArray System is an example of the impact of the U.S. Air Force Small Business Innovation Research / Small Business Technology Transfer Program, which funds research and development by small businesses / cooperative R&D projects with small businesses and non-profit U.S. research institutions. The Air Force SBIR/STTR program focuses on projects and services with the potential to develop into a product for military or commercial sectors. From 2000-2013, the Air Force invested nearly $4 billion in these R&D projects. BioFire received funding during this period to develop the FilmArray technology. This is BioFire’s story.
