SWINOSTICS is a European project, funded within the framework of EU’s Horizon 2020 Programme. The project is coordinated by CyRIC, Cyprus Research and Innovation Center Ltd and will run for three and a half years, to allow enough time for the development and real-world validation of the technology.
The main aim is to develop a device for early, field-based, detection of important swine diseases (ASFV, PRRSV, H1N1, PPV, PCV2 and CSF). The device will use swine oral fluid samples as its main input, even though, it will be compatible with the use of other types of samples, such as faeces, blood or nasal swabs.
The project is funded by Horizon 2020, the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation for 2014-2020 under grant agreement No 771649.
