Toronto Airport Authority Partners with Kraken Sense, a Leading Canadian Tech Company, as Part of Study to Combat COVID-19 | Ap


The Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) is partnering with Kraken Sense, a leader in real-time pathogen detection devices, as part of a study funded in part by the National Research Council of Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC IRAP) to conduct tests on airport wastewater for Monkeypox and Omicron, a variant of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. Kraken Sense is testing multiple samples of wastewater at Toronto Pearson Airport using their technology to obtain quantitative results in under an hour without sacrificing the accuracy of results in contrast to traditional PCR technology, which can take multiple days to turnaround.
