News Facts:
  • New BiologyWorks k(now)™ device redefines healthcare testing by providing highly accurate testing for COVID-19 or other molecular assays.
  • Multi-spectral sensors from ams Osram enable molecular testing for the virus by analyzing nasal samples.  
  • The flexible spectral sensors are standardized for all light wavelengths, allowing Biology-Works™ to use different assays to identify everything from COVID-19 to Influenza A/B to glucose levels and STDs.
Premstaetten, Austria (8th July 2021) -- ams OSRAM (SIX: AMS), a global leader in optical solutions, today announced its multi-spectral technology is a key component of the Biolo-gyWorks (k)now device, a rapid, lab-quality and affordable molecular test for COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) and other infections.

“The ams Osram spectral sensor is a critical component of the BiologyWorks k(now) device because of its unique ability to quickly and reliably identify samples further ensuring the delivery of accurate, digital results,” noted Peter Marx, a BiologyWorks founder. 

Using the BiologyWorks k(now) device is simple. Samples are collected with an anterior nasal swab, consecutively added to two test tubes with fluids, mixed and then a drop of the mixture is added to a disposable cartridge. The cartridge is then inserted into the device for molecular testing that is highly accurate, inexpensive and examines multiple indicators at once. COVID-19 results can be found by scanning a QR code on the device display with a smartphone. 

The BiologyWorks k(now) device features the AS7341L, a 10-channel spectral sensor that offers highly accurate spectral identification for reflection or fluorescence measurements. The multi-wavelength approach of the AS7341L enables cost-effective multi-analyte detection and is available in a mobile device-compatible package. BiologyWorks’ cutting-edge software and hardware, combined with LAMP chemistry, completes the analysis, delivering results in minutes at home. 

“We are proud to be at the forefront of spectral sensing technology, which enables point-of-care and in-home COVID-19 testing by products such as the BiologyWorks k(now) device,” said Jennifer Zhao, Executive Vice President of the Advanced Optical Sensors business unit at ams Osram. “Our sensor solutions are designed to improve speed, sensitivity and cycle time for a wide variety of diagnostic testing. These kinds of rapid, accurate and cost-effective mass-testing solutions can make a huge difference in controlling the virus and help us support the restarting of the economy and resume many of the social activities we have missed over the past year.”
