SRI International Licenses Bed Bug Detection Technology to Redcoat, a Virginia-Based Start-Up Company
Date:3/19/2013

MENLO PARK, Calif, March 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SRI International has licensed its proprietary bed bug detection technology to Redcoat Solutions, Inc., a new company focused on developing products to detect and treat insect infestations.  Redcoat is located in Harrisonburg, VA, where SRI has a research center.

Scientists at SRI developed a rapid, sensitive test that recognizes molecules specific to bed bugs. Redcoat intends to market the device under the brand name RAPID PURSUIT™. Based on preliminary testing, RAPID PURSUIT presents a number of advantages: unlike other detection devices, the test requires no sophisticated equipment and registers a response in minutes, and RAPID PURSUIT is designed to detect only bedbugs, avoiding confusion that could be caused by the presence of other pests.

Current bed bug detection methods and products do not have the effectiveness, ease of use, affordability, and stealth of RAPID PURSUIT. Glue traps and devices that use attractants such as carbon dioxide require that a bed bug actually come into contact with the device. Visual inspection is estimated to be only 30 percent accurate.  Canine inspection, while often accurate, can be expensive and indiscreet. 

RAPID PURSUIT eliminates the need to see or handle actual bed bugs, because it detects the residue – or "footprints" – that the bugs leave behind.  It will be a powerful tool for pest control companies, hotel operators, and international travelers, among many other types of users.   

"Solving the bed bug infestation problem is a critical need for the hospitality industry and is a real battle for people living in cities in America and throughout the world," said Krishna Kodukula , Ph.D., executive director for Strategic Development, SRI Biosciences. "We are proud that research from SRI Shenandoah Valley has led to th
