Robust Automation and Point of Care IDentification of COVID

Project description

A comprehensive strategy for accurate diagnosis of COVID-19 and other respiratory diseases

COVID-19, the infectious disease caused by the most recently discovered coronavirus, has spread to more than 200 countries worldwide. Detecting and differentiating Sars-CoV-2 from SARS-CoV, which emerged in November 2002, as well as 30 other common respiratory bacteria and viruses, is important. Failure to distinguish different pathogens may lead to unnecessary antimicrobial use, cross-infection of mis-grouped patients and further spreading of infectious disease. The EU-funded RAPID-COVID project will prototype a technique to simultaneously detect and differentiate SARS-CoV-2 and 30 other common respiratory bacteria and viruses. It will allow for accurate, cost-effective and comprehensive diagnoses during the current outbreak as well as for streamlined integration into future routine diagnoses of respiratory diseases.
