Imec begins developing SARS-CoV-2 test to identify positive cases and confirm whether someone is contagious in less than five minutes
LEUVEN (Belgium), October 23, 2020 — Imec, a world-leading research and innovation hub in nanoelectronics and digital technologies, announced that it has started developing a groundbreaking SARS-CoV-2 test. Unlike current approaches (using blood, saliva, or a nasopharyngeal swab), the new test will identify SARS-CoV-2 virus particles in a person’s exhaled breath. The solution promises the accurate identification of a contagious case in less than five minutes. This will make for faster, easier, more comfortable, and larger-scale testing – an essential requirement for getting a grip on epidemics much sooner while limiting their economic and social impact. Imec is teaming up with the UZ Leuven University Hospital for the solution’s clinical validation. By the summer of 2021, imec intends to test a functional prototype at Brussels Airport.

Astrotech's stock skyrockets after JDA with Cleveland Clinic to develop COVID-19 breath test
Shares of Astrotech Corp. ASTC, 139.83% skyrocketed 168% in active trading to pace all premarket gainers Wednesday, after the company said its BreathTech Corp. subsidiary has partnered with the Cleveland Clinic to develop a rapid breath test for COVID-19. Trading volume was 11.4 million shares ahead of the open, compared with the full-day average of about 1.4 million shares. The stock is on track to open at the highest price seen during regular-session hours since April, in the aftermath of the company's announcement in March that it was developing a breath test that could screen for lung infections, including the COVID-19 virus. Astrotech said late Tuesday that BreathTech sighed a joint development agreement (JDA) with Cleveland Clinic to explore leveraging the BreathTest-1000 mass spectrometer to rapidly screen for COVID-19. "The advantage of breath testing is that it is non-invasive and non-intrusive," said Dr. Raed Dweik, chairman of Cleveland Clinic's Respiratory Institute. "It does not have a dose limitation like x-rays, an amount limitation like blood or saliva tests, or a timing limitation like PCR, blood and urine tests."

Cives Steel, which has made steel structures in Thomasville in Georgia for 39 years, last week shut down and 100 employees lost their jobs. Company President Greg Orff told the Thomasville Times-Enterprise that said the COVID-19 pandemic created an unanticipated and unsustainable situation in what was already a difficult geographic market and that only 18 workers remain onboard to close up shop. He said "It was with great regret that we announced the suspension of all operations at the Cives Steel Southern Division in Thomasville. Despite exceptional efforts by our personnel, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our operation in Thomasville created an unanticipated and unsustainable situation in what was already a difficult geographic market. These conditions forced us to make the very difficult decision of closing our facility. We will be working with our impacted personnel to ease the burden of this event as we immediately proceed with an orderly shutdown of operations."

Between a historically low production output, steadily declining electronics sales across the globe, and “humilitating” chipmaking troubles, business hasn’t exactly been good for Samsung this year. While a lot of those issues stem from the unpredictable turn of events 2020 had in store for us, Samsung is in need of solutions, not excuses. Especially given how its top management is getting dangerously close to yet another high-profile scandal not long after Vice Chairman and heir apparent, Lee Jae-yong, managed to get his prison sentence over government bribery miraculously suspended.

This was mainly attributable to the absence of one-off gain from the divestment of electronics manufacturing business, recognition of impairment loss of USD 8.83 million on the loan receivable from Major Star Holdings Ltd, mark-to-market losses of USD 4.83 million on financial investments, fair value losses of USD 3.59 million on investment properties, foreign exchange loss of USD 2.32 million, and absence of one-off sale of land.

Eurofins Technologies Serological Assays Demonstrate Ability to Identify Neutralizing Antibodies
Eurofins Technologies (Paris:ERF) recently launched multiple serological assay solutions to detect total antibodies or specific antibody subclasses (IgG, IgM, and IgA) targeted against the Nucleocapsid protein of the novel Coronavirus. Antibody tests can be used to identify individuals who have been previously exposed to the virus and in some cases those who have an active infection. This is especially important in the context of the large number of asymptomatic SARS-CoV-2 infections that could stay otherwise undetected. However, simple presence of antibodies in an individual does not guarantee immunity to further infections since only a fraction of antibodies provide the ability to neutralize the virus upon a second contact. Currently, elaborate tests requiring high biological safety measures are required to identify these neutralizing antibodies.

Cisco has been exposed by COVID-19, this investor says
Cisco reported its fiscal fourth quarter and year end results last week, showing revenue down nine per cent year-over-year to $12.2 billion and adjusted EPS of $0.80 per share, down four per cent. And while both numbers beat analysts’ estimates at $12.08 billion and $0.74 per share, respectively, it was management’s guidance for the upcoming fiscal 2021 that caused all the trouble. Cisco called for a further revenue drop of between seven and nine per cent for the upcoming quarter. (All figures in US dollars.)
