Solicitation Title: Point of Care Tests for Chlamydia and Other STDs
Purpose: The Johns Hopkins Center for Point-of-Care Tests for STDs (JHU C POCT STD) is seeking to facilitate the development of novel detection technologies for Point of Care Tests. Successful applications will describe the development of tests which minimally:
- can detect less than 5,000 elementary bodies of chlamydia/ml
- are rapid (time from sample to result under 4 hours)
- have low-labor burden for sample preparation and assay, and
- will be low cost (under $30/test)
Multiplex assays which can detect chlamydia as well as other sexually transmitted diseases are encouraged.
