ENTIDADES ASOCIADAS

La Universidad Mayor tiene como misión la formación de personas a través de una experiencia educativa que estimule en ellas un comportamiento ético, una actitud de emprendimiento, innovación, liderazgo y respeto por la diversidad cultural y social. La visión institucional es ser distinguida como una Universidad privada referente en Chile y reconocida a nivel latinoamericano; destacada por la excelencia de sus programas académicos, su enfoque innovador, su nivel de internacionalización, la pertinencia de las contribuciones que realiza a la sociedad y la responsabilidad social y ambiental de su accionar.

Biome Therapeutics es un spin-off de la Universidad Mayor dedicado, a integrar la microbiota humana o ambiental en aplicaciones innovadoras. Usando aproximaciones de Culturómica, exploramos las dinámicas entre los diversos microorganismos y como esta contribuyen a mejorar la salud de las personas y los procesos productivos en la industria. Nuestro enfoque biotecnológico y académico nos permite generar soluciones atractivas para el mercado.

Genoma Mayor es líder en servicios de análisis genéticos y bioinformáticos para investigadores en los campos de las ciencias biológicas. Contamos con múltiples plataformas para análisis en Genómica, Proteómica y Metabolómica; como también procedimientos de trabajo de laboratorio y bioinformáticos desarrollados y validados, capaces de responder inquietudes tanto de investigación científica como de desarrollo biotecnológico y médico para el mercado Latinoamericano.

El Centro de Biología Integrativa se enfoca en entender cómo la información genética dirige el desarrollo de organizaciones complejas y funcionales en sistemas vivos. En un ambiente estimulante donde se promueve la colaboración, en el CIB se usan diversas aproximaciones experimentales: desde comportamiento animal hasta ómica (genómica, proteómica y metablómica), basados en diferentes sistemas modelo. Con instalaciones de última generación, esta estrategia combinatoria de multinivel y multimodelo permite abordar problemáticas asociadas a las propiedades emergentes de los sistemas biológicos en salud y enfermedad.

Enhancing Colorimetric LAMP Amplification Speed and Sensitivity with Guanidine Chloride

Loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) is a versatile technique for detection of target DNA and RNA, enabling rapid molecular diagnostic assays with minimal equipment. The global SARS-CoV-2 pandemic has presented an urgent need for new and better diagnostic methods, …

SARS-CoV-2 On-the-Spot Virus Detection Directly From Patients

Many countries are currently in a lockdown state due to the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic. One key aspect to transition safely out of lockdown is to continuously test the population for infected subjects. Currently, detection is performed at points of care using quantitative reverse-transcription PCR (RT-qPCR), …

Rapid and extraction-free detection of SARS-CoV-2 from saliva with colorimetric LAMP

Rapid, reliable, and widespread testing is required to curtail the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Current gold standard diagnostic assays are hampered by supply shortages in critical reagents including nasal swabs, RNA extraction kits, personal protective equipment (PPE), instrumentation, and labor…

EasyCOV : LAMP based rapid detection of SARS-CoV-2 in saliva

Covid-19 crisis showed us that rapid massive virus detection campaign is a key element in SARS-CoV-2 pandemic response. The classical RT-PCR laboratory platforms must be complemented with rapid and simplified technologies to enhance efficiency of large testing strategies. To this aim, …

Virological assessment of hospitalized patients with COVID-2019

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is an acute infection of the respiratory tract that emerged in late 2019. Initial outbreaks in China involved 13.8% of cases with severe courses, and 6.1% of cases with critical courses. This severe presentation may result from the virus using a virus receptor that is expressed…

Clinical assessment and validation of a rapid and sensitive SARS-CoV-2 test using reverse-transcription loop-mediated isothermal amplification

Amid the enduring COVID-19 pandemic, there is an urgent need for expanded access to rapid and sensitive SARS-CoV-2 testing worldwide. Here we present a simple clinical workflow that uses a sensitive and highly specific…

Direct diagnostic testing of SARS-CoV-2 without the need for prior RNA extraction.

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in an urgent global need for rapid, point-of-care diagnostic testing. Existing methods for nucleic acid amplification testing (NAAT) require an RNA extraction step prior to amplification of the viral RNA. This step necessitates the use of a centralized laboratory…

Field-deployable, rapid diagnostic testing of saliva samples for SARS-CoV-2

Rapid, scalable, point-of-need, COVID-19 diagnostic testing is necessary to safely re-open economies and prevent future outbreaks. We developed an assay that detects single copies of SARS- CoV-2 virus directly from saliva and swab samples in 30 min using a simple, one-step protocol that utilizes only…

Saliva Tests: How They Work and What They Bring to COVID-19

Faced with an ongoing lack of protective equipment and testing supplies, medical professionals have been seeking alternatives to accurately diagnose cases of COVID-19, a pandemic that has caused more than 11 million cases and more than 530,000 deaths worldwide. Supplies of nasopharyngeal swabs were some of the first…

New saliva test for coronavirus piloted in Southampton

Participants will be able to complete coronavirus tests at home by putting their saliva into a sample pot to be tested for current infections of the virus.

GP staff, other essential key workers, university employees and members of their households will be among the first groups to participate in…

“No-swab” saliva test for coronavirus piloted in Britain

LONDON (Reuters) – A weekly coronavirus testing regime using a “no-swab” saliva test is being trialled in southern England and could result in a simpler and quicker way to detect outbreaks of the virus, the British government said on Monday.

CNRS researchers develop ultra-fast saliva test to detect Covid-19

EasyCov, a diagnostic test developed by researchers from the French laboratory Sys2diag goes on the market today. Portable, it can be carried out anywhere and gives its result in under an hour.
