    "The ReEBOV™ Antigen Rapid Test was developed by Corgenix in cooperation with additional members of the Viral Hemorrhagic Fever Consortium (VHFC), a collaboration of academic and industry members headed by Tulane University, including Autoimmune Technologies LLC, Zalgen Labs LLC, The Scripps Research Institute and the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, as well as other collaborators in West Africa. Mr. Simpson noted, "We are pleased to be part of the VHFC. This is a remarkable group of scientists who have been in the forefront of research in Ebola, Lassa fever and other dangerous viral diseases in Africa for many years. A key component of our success is a result of the commitment and participation of the Ministry of Sanitation and Public Health of the Republic of Sierra Leone and the dedicated medical personnel of the Kenema Government Hospital in Kenema, Sierra Leone, a number of whom have died fighting the current Ebola outbreak.”
    “This has the potential to be a game-changer in stopping the spread of the epidemic,” said Dr. Robert Garry, Professor of Microbiology and Immunology at Tulane, and Principal Investigator of the VHFC. “Instead of taking days for lab results, the Ebola RDT uses a drop of blood from a finger #$%$ to deliver a diagnosis in as little as 15 – 25 minutes, potentially allowing trained public health workers to isolate and treat patients immediately. Medical personnel will be able to quickly identify hotspots and may prevent resurgence of cases in the current outbreak."

    Must be quite a group who understood the threat this virus presented.
