Market Release of a Portable Device for COVID-19 at the Point-of-Care; a Global Diagnostics Approach

Project description

Portable device for COVID-19 real-time detection

As the world is bracing for the second wave of the rapidly spreading coronavirus, accurate diagnostic tools have emerged as a global priority. Together with isolation and tracking, the large-scale testing of citizens is proving to be most effective in controlling COVID-19. However, adequate, robust testing solutions are necessary to achieve fast results in protecting populations. For this reason, the EU-funded IRIS-COV project is proposing a solution based on a patented portable device with isothermal LAMP amplification and real-time, quantitative, colourimetric detection that has proven 97.4 % sensitive and 100 % specific for SARS-CoV-2 in samples. The project will validate and certify the portable device for COVID-19 and flu detection directly in crude samples and at the point of care, aiming towards its global uptake.
