The ‘coming’ mark will most likely involve a ‘subdermal’ application of the next wave of vaccinations, that will include a form of ‘digital data memory’ indicating date and time of vaccination. This ‘mark’ of vaccination will involve a sub-dermal outline or image representing a ‘branding’ that can be scanned and revealed by ultra-violet lite at a retail checkout point scanner. Just as many people have a physical vaccination ‘mark’ on their arm from getting shots in the 1960s, the coming vaccination mark will be subtle and reside ‘inside’ the human body affecting and indicating a genomic change in the recipient. This is an abomination viewed by God and causes the recipient to lose ‘Imager Status Before God’ and results in eternal damnation. The vaccination ‘mark’ has to be easily accessible by scanners and retail checkout points, hence the recipient will have the option of receiving the vaccination ‘patch’ either on their hand or forehead for ‘scannability.’
New CRISPR-based test for COVID-19 uses a smartphone camera
by Gladstone Institutes DECEMBER 5, 2020
Imagine swabbing your nostrils, putting the swab in a device, and getting a read-out on your phone in 15 to 30 minutes that tells you if you are infected with the COVID-19 virus. This has been the vision for a team of scientists at Gladstone Institutes, University of California, Berkeley (UC Berkeley), and University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). And now, they report a scientific breakthrough that brings them closer to making this vision a reality.
One of the major hurdles to combating the COVID-19 pandemic and fully reopening communities across the country is the availability of mass rapid testing. Knowing who is infected would provide valuable insights about the potential spread and threat of the virus for policymakers and citizens alike.
Yet, people must often wait several days for their results, or even longer when there is a backlog in processing lab tests. And, the situation is worsened by the fact that most infected people have mild or no symptoms, yet still carry and spread the virus.
In a new study published in the scientific journal Cell, the team from Gladstone, UC Berkeley, and UCSF has outlined the technology for a CRISPR-based test for COVID-19 that uses a smartphone camera to provide accurate results in under 30 minutes.
“It has been an urgent task for the scientific community to not only increase testing, but also to provide new testing options,” says Melanie Ott, MD, Ph.D., director of the Gladstone Institute of Virology and one of the leaders of the study. “The assay we developed could provide rapid, low-cost testing to help control the spread of COVID-19.”
The technique was designed in collaboration with UC Berkeley bioengineer Daniel Fletcher, Ph.D., as well as Jennifer Doudna, Ph.D., who is a senior investigator at Gladstone, a professor at UC Berkeley, president of the Innovative Genomics Institute, and an investigator of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. Doudna recently won the 2020 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for co-discovering CRISPR-Cas genome editing, the technology that underlies this work.
Not only can their new diagnostic test generate a positive or negative result, it also measures the viral load (or the concentration of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19) in a given sample.
“When coupled with repeated testing, measuring viral load could help determine whether an infection is increasing or decreasing,” says Fletcher, who is also a Chan Zuckerberg Biohub Investigator. “Monitoring the course of a patient’s infection could help health care professionals estimate the stage of infection and predict, in real time, how long is likely needed for recovery.”
Current COVID-19 tests use a method called quantitative PCR—the gold standard of testing. However, one of the issues with using this technique to test for SARS-CoV-2 is that it requires DNA. Coronavirus is an RNA virus, which means that to use the PCR approach, the viral RNA must first be converted to DNA. In addition, this technique relies on a two-step chemical reaction, including an amplification step to provide enough of the DNA to make it detectable. So, current tests typically need trained users, specialized reagents, and cumbersome lab equipment, which severely limits where testing can occur and causes delays in receiving results.
As an alternative to PCR, scientists are developing testing strategies based on the gene-editing technology CRISPR, which excels at specifically identifying genetic material.
All CRISPR diagnostics to date have required that the viral RNA be converted to DNA and amplified before it can be detected, adding time and complexity. In contrast, the novel approach described in this recent study skips all the conversion and amplification steps, using CRISPR to directly detect the viral RNA.
“One reason we’re excited about CRISPR-based diagnostics is the potential for quick, accurate results at the point of need,” says Doudna. “This is especially helpful in places with limited access to testing, or when frequent, rapid testing is needed. It could eliminate a lot of the bottlenecks we’ve seen with COVID-19.”
Parinaz Fozouni, a UCSF graduate student working in Ott’s lab at Gladstone, had been working on an RNA detection system for HIV for the past few years. But in January 2020, when it became clear that the coronavirus was becoming a bigger issue globally and that testing was a potential pitfall, she and her colleagues decided to shift their focus to COVID-19.
“We knew the assay we were developing would be a logical fit to help the crisis by allowing rapid testing with minimal resources,” says Fozouni, who is co-first author of the paper, along with Sungmin Son and María Díaz de León Derby from Fletcher’s team at UC Berkeley. “Instead of the well-known CRISPR protein called Cas9, which recognizes and cleaves DNA, we used Cas13, which cleaves RNA.”
In the new test, the Cas13 protein is combined with a reporter molecule that becomes fluorescent when cut, and then mixed with a patient sample from a nasal swab. The sample is placed in a device that attaches to a smartphone. If the sample contains RNA from SARS-CoV-2, Cas13 will be activated and will cut the reporter molecule, causing the emission of a fluorescent signal. Then, the smartphone camera, essentially converted into a microscope, can detect the fluorescence and report that a swab tested positive for the virus.
“What really makes this test unique is that it uses a one-step reaction to directly test the viral RNA, as opposed to the two-step process in traditional PCR tests,” says Ott, who is also a professor in the Department of Medicine at UCSF. “The simpler chemistry, paired with the smartphone camera, cuts down detection time and doesn’t require complex lab equipment. It also allows the test to yield quantitative measurements rather than simply a positive or negative result.”
The researchers also say that their assay could be adapted to a variety of mobile phones, making the technology easily accessible.
“We chose to use mobile phones as the basis for our detection device since they have intuitive user interfaces and highly sensitive cameras that we can use to detect fluorescence,” explains Fletcher. “Mobile phones are also mass-produced and cost-effective, demonstrating that specialized lab instruments aren’t necessary for this assay.”
Accurate and Quick Results to Limit the Pandemic
When the scientists tested their device using patient samples, they confirmed that it could provide a very fast turnaround time of results for samples with clinically relevant viral loads. In fact, the device accurately detected a set of positive samples in under 5 minutes. For samples with a low viral load, the device required up to 30 minutes to distinguish it from a negative test.
“Recent models of SARS-CoV-2 suggest that frequent testing with a fast turnaround time is what we need to overcome the current pandemic,” says Ott. “We hope that with increased testing, we can avoid lockdowns and protect the most vulnerable populations.”
Not only does the new CRISPR-based test offer a promising option for rapid testing, but by using a smartphone and avoiding the need for bulky lab equipment, it has the potential to become portable and eventually be made available for point-of-care or even at-home use. And, it could also be expanded to diagnose other respiratory viruses beyond SARS-CoV-2.
In addition, the high sensitivity of smartphone cameras, together with their connectivity, GPS, and data-processing capabilities, have made them attractive tools for diagnosing disease in low-resource regions.
“We hope to develop our test into a device that could instantly upload results into cloud-based systems while maintaining patient privacy, which would be important for contact tracing and epidemiologic studies,” Ott says. “This type of smartphone-based diagnostic test could play a crucial role in controlling the current and future pandemics.”
Night Watchman Note; ‘THE GRAND DADDY SIGN’. ‘THAT WICKED’. That is what ‘watchmen or women’ do. Jesus made clear that when He actually does come for His disciples, His wise and faithful servants would be aware of the time because they would be watching. They would know the season of the times by WATCHING those things ‘coming to pass or occurring’ as Jesus said they would. The ‘BENCHMARK SIGN(s)’ always point towards Israel / Jacob. God’s prophetic timepiece. The FALSE PEACE COVENANT confirmed by the Prince/Beast among MENA (the many) is the ‘key sign’ of the times or the season of the times. Yes, we are in that period. The Prince/Beast will likely confirm and enhance the current ‘normalization’ agreement with Jacob to be a ‘peace’ agreement, to be extended to 7 years from the current 5 years, to include some agreement permitting the rebuilding of the third temple in exchange for ‘some portion of Jerusalem.’ The current ‘investment’ period for the Palestinians stands at five (5) years. This will likely occur AFTER the Bride, Disciples or True Church is removed from the earth via the Rapture / Harpazo / Redemption / ‘Twinkling’.
Confirmation for Seven (7) Years
Daniel 9:26-27 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
‘Current Plan’ (Satan’s Plan = Five (5) years financial investment period for 180 (6+6+6) ‘infrastructure projects’ costing $50 (5) Billion to cut poverty by 50% (5)).
U.S. President Donald Trump’s “Peace to Prosperity” plan, which he unveiled at the White House on Jan. 28, 2020, calls for Israel to retain 30 percent of the West Bank (territory that the parties to the conflict had already agreed would remain under Israeli control, in accordance with the 1995 Oslo Accords), with the remaining 70 percent reserved for an eventual Palestinian state. The plan states that there would be a freeze on Israeli settlement-building in that area for four years—and land swaps to provide the Palestinian state with land comparable in size to the territory of pre-1967 West Bank and Gaza, and a capital in eastern Jerusalem.
It includes a $50 billion investment fund for 179 infrastructure and business projects in that state, designed to create more than one million jobs, cut the poverty rate by 50 percent and reduce unemployment from 31 percent to a single digit.
US President Donald Trump has predicted that Saudi Arabia will be among up to 10 further countries preparing to ‘normalize’ their relations with Israel.
The meaning was obvious: The country [Saudi Arabia] is tired of waiting for Palestinians to make peace and is preparing to move on. The message to foreign capitals, perhaps to Washington in particular, is equally clear: The time is coming when a deal may be done.
Prophetic Discernment: Two ‘Scenarios’. I am not ‘dogmatic’ about either one. Other scenarios could come into play. THE POINT … is how close we are!
Trump may still yet get the Beast to agree for ‘MENA’ the ‘CURRENT’ plan, SHORTLY, in the few remaining days left in the ‘Last Trump’ or ‘Last Trumpence’ Presidency. Saudis may be ‘nervous’ about the Biden election and want to get the ‘deal done and finished’ while Trump is in the twilight of his presidency.
The following would take place AFTER the Rapture: Biden/Harris may work to ‘ENHANCE’ the plan by the literal splitting of Jerusalem along the 1967 lines. An ‘exchange’ of sovereignty to get a temple for the Jews and to give the Beast custodianship of al-Aqsa … that which he covets. The plan will be ‘ENHANCED’ (investment wise for the Palestinians) for Seven (7) years. Perhaps the investment amount will also be increased.
Then the following: Beast ‘ENHANCES’ the plan under Biden, by splitting Jerusalem along 1967 lines. In a ‘Give up Sovereignty, Get a Temple’ scenario. The plan finally gets ‘CONFIRMED’ or approved shortly, under Biden/Harris (Deceiver-in-Chief and Jezebel-in-Chief).
Either way, the Rapture / Harpazo / Redemption / ‘Twinkling’ is imminent.
Prophecy has a ‘window.’ That window is closing shortly and quickly. As is the door in the ‘Age of Grace’ for the world.
Pay ‘Eagle-Eye’ attention to the world geo-political news feeds to see if any type of ‘confirmation’ is forthcoming or made by the Prince / Beast/ 8th King / Son of Perdition / Future Antichrist / Man of Lawlessness. Also MbS, Man-by-Satan and the Confirmer and he that causeth the Abomination of Desolation in April 2024. Trump may surprise the world and suddenly proclaim that a deal has been reach or agreed upon by Saudi Arabia and at least nine (3×3) other Arab/Muslim countries from MENA. If nothing happens over the next 10 days, it is possible the entire covenant could be ‘strengthened and confirmed’ AFTER the rapture. This is a very real possibility. Be warned and hopeful.
