    Scientists from Slovak companies MultiplexDX, Lambda Life and ProScience Tech have joined forces with virologists from the Biomedical Center of the Slovak Academy of Sciences (BMC SAV) to build a reagent kit according to the World Health Organization (WHO) protocol for reliable detection of SARS-CoV-2. In the first phase they plan to produce and make available 100,000 PCR tests. The ESET Foundation supported the development of the test and finances the first 100,000 pieces to be offered as a gift to the Slovak Republic.
    Key components have been developed and manufactured by MultiplexDX, a company dedicated to developing and manufacturing innovative reagents for various molecular diagnostic methods. The Slovak PCR test is currently being validated in cooperation with a team of scientists from the BMC SAS. Preliminary results show not only the functionality but also the good sensitivity of the new test, comparable to the currently used diagnostics. “This means that our test is reliable and accurate and can help diagnose early-stage patients. We can produce key components for 100,000 PCR tests in two weeks, ”explains Pavol Čekan, founder of MultiplexDX.
    “In the process of validation and subsequent registration of the resulting report we cooperate with the non-profit organization CCCT SK. It will be estimated to take about three weeks, ”said Adam Andráško of ProScience Tech. "Virus detection consists of sample collection, RNA isolation and PCR diagnostics itself, with our joint efforts focused on the last step," said Ivan Juráš of Lambda Life. “I believe that the efforts of our scientists will be crowned with success, and we will have enough PCR tests from our own resources as important as coronavirus detection. This will help Slovakia not only in continuous testing, but we will also create a reserve in case there is a shortage of tests in the world, ”notes Robert Mistrík from the permanent crisis staff.
    The ESET Foundation supported the development of the test and provided funding for the first 100,000 units from the COVID-19 Effective Diagnosis and Prevention Fund. These tests will be offered as a gift to Slovak state institutions. “When creating the Fund, it was important for us to ensure effective mass-scale diagnostics, which can only be achieved through science. Even in such a critical situation, the importance of supporting science in Slovakia, which we have been dedicated to for a long time, thus proves important, ”says Richard Marko, CEO of ESET.
    Production capacities will primarily be available to diagnostic laboratories in Slovakia after the first 100,000 tests have been used. “We are ready to cooperate with state laboratories, flexibly respond to their needs and supply them efficiently. After meeting the needs of Slovak Laboratories, we can direct our capacities to other countries that would need our products, ”explains the authors of the test.

    Nightowl received kudos from peteyt in ESET to create a fund to support effective diagnosis of SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus   
    This is very nice of ESET
    Also for people who are interested to give their computer power to help solve the problem you can do this using Folding@Home , https://foldingathome.org/2020/03/15/coronavirus-what-were-doing-and-how-you-can-help-in-simple-terms/
    But that will use most of the CPU and GPU if it's running on your computer , it will help scientists find a formula against the Corona.
    I hope it will be good and peaceful all over the world.

    Nightowl gave kudos to Marcos in ESET to create a fund to support effective diagnosis of SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus   
    ESET has been protecting users worldwide for decades already and have always provided state-of-the-art protection. While it was always our digital worlds that ESET has been protecting, now with the epidemic of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus the need to protect also users themselves became inevitable. Besides supporting various scientific and charity events, we are now creating a fund to support effective diagnosis of SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, giving 300,000 EUR to support the purchase of a diagnostic system capable of analyzing 4000 samples per day.
    By purchasing ESET's products you can be sure that you also support science and charity.

    Recognizing the seriousness of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus spread, ESET has decided to engage in the fight against the epidemic in Slovakia. The ESET Foundation has therefore set up a COVID-19 Effective Diagnosis and Prevention Fund, to which ESET will contribute EUR 300,000. The amount will be increased later if necessary. The aim of the newly established fund is to provide, in the first phase, the necessary equipment for improving the quality of diagnostics and introducing comprehensive testing in Slovakia.
    Since its inception, ESET has dedicated itself to the diagnosis of computer viruses and is symbolic to support the diagnosis of biological viruses in this situation. Even at such moments, the importance of science, which can make a significant contribution to solving the situation, has been shown. ESET Foundation supports science and research and is the organizer of the ESET Science Award.
    “We have set up a fund to support the effective diagnosis and prevention of coronavirus because we believe that only a systematic scientific approach will help us manage this epidemic. At the same time, it is essential that we think ahead today and take steps to relaunch the economy. General and systematic testing of the population will help in returning the employees to the work process and thus also help the Slovak economy, ” explains Richard Marko, CEO of ESET.
    Through the Fund, ESET will support the purchase of high-performance diagnostic equipment, the development of systems for more efficient online diagnostics, or contribute to the cost of operating or collecting and transporting samples. Public and private medical diagnostic institutions and laboratories operating in Slovakia that are authorized to diagnose this type or to take and transport SARS-CoV-2 related samples may receive financial support. These institutions can contact the ESET Foundation at nadacia[at]eset.sk . The expert guarantor in the evaluation of the use of the fund's resources is the recognized Slovak chemist Robert Mistrík.
    “After the first discussions, we are considering co-financing the purchase of the Roche cobas 8800 System, or co-financing its operation. This device is able to do real-time RT-PCR tests at lower unit cost and shorter time in automatic mode. It can evaluate up to 4,000 samples in a single day. We will look for a partner to operate this device. Of course, the fund will also be open to other solutions supporting its goal, ” concludes Robert Mistrík, the fund's expert guarantor.

    Nightowl gave kudos to M.K. in Remove any macro in Microsoft Office documents   
    Hi Tom,
    in Mail Security there is an option to define a custom rule to move all emails containing macro-enabled office documents to quarantine. You need to define an Attachment type condition and mark "Microsoft Office Macro-Enabled Document (97-2003)", "Microsoft Word Macro-Enabled (2007+) (*docm, *dotm)", etc...

    Nightowl received kudos from Aryeh Goretsky in Future changes to ESET Internet Security and ESET Smart Security Premium   
    It's not that big deal in my opinion @nonamelab, It's a way to bring more people to use ESET and in the same time giving the person who invited the other person who doesn't use ESET , a month of usage or more I don't remember exactly.
