Sage-N to Integrate Army’s ABOID System into Its Proteomics Platform

  • Sage-N Research will integrate into its Sorcerer proteomics platform the Agents of Biological Organs Identification (ABOID) system developed by the U.S. Army Edgewood Chemical Biological Center (ECBC) under an exclusive licensing agreement.

    The ABOID system can reportedly identify 4,500 different bacteria, viruses, fungi, and other cellular material in fluid media without the need for growing cultures or any prior knowledge about them. “This cutting edge technology enables identification of microorganisms down to strain level in minutes, rather than hours,” remarks ECBC senior scientist Charles Wick, Ph.D.

    ECBC is an army research, development, and engineering command laboratory located at the Edgewood Area of Maryland’s Aberdeen Proving Ground.
