Utilize paper microfluidics (http://www.mf20.org/) to develop a fast and simple detection assay. Prior work has shown the ability to detect sequences using bead bound oligos (http://pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021/ac403196b).

scott commented on Fast, easy and cheap assay

While differentiating mitochondrial DNA origin was they toy example they used, you could design a similar assay for any oligo targets. What would be useful is designing a set of probes for the most conserved regions in Ebola that do not align with anything else in the sample.
