Come and hear Shaun Day from Greatland Gold #GGP, Cathal Friel and Jeremy Skillington from Poolbeg Pharma #POLB, George Bennett from Rainbow Rare Earths #RBW and Helium One CEO David Minchin #HE1 present tomorrow evening. Register here.
Who cares about wild projections, the BB is useful for hive mind investigation of developments that are in real time. Perfect example is when the dude found out they submitted wrong paperwork. If it wasn’t for folk talking this would have got missed! Although it’s also good for the banter and reading the constant negative rhetoric from some posters ;)
RE: Q&A: on home use authorisation17 Oct 2021 14:33
For a start Avct not submitted home use it’s Medusa and they have an NDA in place so non of us know exactly what’s going on. Although we can assume that Medusa won’t be sitting back on any private LFT market, UK or EU so I would imagine things will be escalating at pace to meet demand!!
“It’s also possible they are only considering tests which have passed PD”
Imo this is very unlikely, Avacta have the most transparent data of any LFT I know of, they have confirmed they pick up Delta on real life samples (REAL LIFE). Absolutely no reason I can think of with test performance and transparency that would suggest not being on a private vendors list!!
One would assume if our test is being sold to the NHS via Medusa 19 it’s good enough for the private LFT market!! If it’s not on that list, I expect AVCT to contact the media and ask why one of the best tests in the world is not on the approved private vendor list, that’s also independent from PD and is based on manufacturing guidelines for validation!!
The government will extend regulations and publish protocol to allow some tests supplied to the private testing market that are pending validation to remain on the market in the short term. This is to address any potential shortage of supply while work continues at pace to ensure only high performing tests are ultimately approved to remain on the UK market. The government will continue to publish a list of private testing providers who meet the minimum standards for the public to choose from, with PCR test options available as well.
I say, I think the sun's about to come out and you say, "What, nothing to say about the rain," and I say, "I am talking about the sun coming out, not the rain ", and you say "so you have an obvious bias about the rain and refuse to talk about it!!!!"
I did have the Friday feeling going until I read this rubbish haha!! Bring on Monday and have a good weekend all!!
RE: Grant Shapps on BBC talking about LFTs08 Oct 2021 12:01
The NHS PCR test wasn’t accepted for travel, it’s got nothing to do with quality!! travel a choice and tax payers money won’t be wasted when you can choose not to go abroad, hence the need for a private LFT market!! likely the Innova’s of this world will struggle to sell a rebranded private version of the NHS LFT against far superior British offerings!! Imo p.s. home use is key to everything!
We have a commercially viable product!! Jesus you would think the avct test they are currently selling at say 1m units a month is more mythic than pot of gold under the rainbow, if you listen to some folk on this BB….
Grant Shapps, the Transport Secretary, also succeeded in killing off Department of Health proposals to require fully-jabbed travellers to video themselves taking lateral flow tests while supervised by a health adviser from a private firm after an outcry from the travel industry.
The tests are due later this month to replace the more expensive PCR versions which all travellers currently have to take on or before day two of their arrival in the UK irrespective of whether they are fully vaccinated or not.
Holidaymakers are now only expected to be required to send a picture of their test kit result as well as some identification such as a passport.
Travellers will have to book their tests before flying, as happens now with PCRs and include the test kit number on their passenger locator forms that allow people into the UK.
The Government aims to have the new testing system in place by the start of the half term on October 23 but this has yet to be finalised - and it could drift into the following week.
However, Government sources said it would be ready by the time families start returning at the end of October if they have gone abroad.
Doubt government will be selecting any test over the others, they want to establish a set criteria and private lft market, competitive quality and pricing will then take over ,AVCT currently has one of the best on the market with independent delta data, we will sell out once the market is established imo, which hopefully will be later on this afternoon!
Having a quick look at the poster looks like independent review on a small sample size with 100% no false positives and 100% CT 27 with 1 sample CT29 not being picked up! studies like this will smash the perception of lateral flow tests to PCR, hopefully lots more studies to follow!!
