A disruptive point-of-care tool for coronavirus detection
The current COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the unpreparedness of governments, public organisations and communities to face and manage such a health crisis. For many infectious diseases, prompt pathogen detection is central for taking the appropriate containment measures to halt their spread. The scope of the EU-funded CoNVat project is to develop a point-of-care biosensor approach for the direct, fast and specific identification of the new coronavirus, directly in the patient's sample. The generated technology will be able to differentiate between the various viral strains and can be implemented in decentralised settings to improve the early diagnosis, surveillance and clinical management of patients.
