A new genetics test for COVID-19 has been developed by an international team of researchers. The full genome sequencing test can not only provide accurate results in less than two minutes, but it can also extract intricate and highly complex genetic data about the strain of the coronavirus infection.
Researchers have developed a new biosensor that can detect SARS-CoV-2, the virus that leads to COVID-19, from nasopharyngeal swabs in under one minute.
Researchers are developing a self-diagnostic test for coronavirus and other viral infections. SickStick tests for nucleic acids in saliva that increase within hours of exposure to a virus.
