SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Wovenware, a nearshore provider of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and digital transformation solutions, announced today that it has been chosen as the software and AI development partner of choice for CDI Labs, a Puerto Rico-based global biotechnology firm. Through the partnership, Wovenware is creating the technology for a next-generation COVID-19 rapid antigen single-use, self-testing kit.
“Wovenware is our technology partner of choice as we innovate a new approach to advanced COVID-19 self-testing,” said Ignacio Pino, President and CEO, CDI Labs. “The company’s deep bench of expertise in mobile app development and AI for life sciences will allow us to meet surging market demand for easy-to-use, immediate and accurate self-testing.”
Providing results via any mobile device, the first generation of the test kits will allow consumers to administer tests from the comfort of their homes in a matter of minutes.

As part of the development process for next-generation kits, the Wovenware team has trained a computer vision model to detect individual test kit components in order to provide an official positive or negative diagnosis in real-time. It will detect 99% of positive test cases.
