Evaluation of a production ready portable, Point-of-Need Platform (instrument and reagents), direct from nasal swab test for the molecular diagnostic detection of COVID-19 infection.

Project description

Containing COVID-19 with rapid tests

Testing is a critical cornerstone of the COVID-19 response. While molecular tests were rolled out within a month of the virus being sequenced, these are laboratory based. Rapid tests are necessary to detect the presence of the virus anywhere. These rapid tests are also faster and cheaper. As such, these tests are vital to contain and fight COVID-19. With this in mind, the EU-funded KRONO project is developing a lyophilised assay for direct detection of the coronavirus from nasal swab samples. This test can be conducted anywhere. The project will test its lyophilised assay. Research will document quantified standards and performance evaluation data under its ISO13485 quality standard and generate data for Emergency Use Authorisation regulatory approval.
