Rapid and easy- test for Coronavirus infections

Project description

Novel rapid test for coronavirus detection

The rapid screening of people is one major aspect to controlling the COVID-19 (C-19) pandemic. The diagnostic standard for C-19 testing is RNA detection in swab specimens by RT-PCR, which requires time and specialised personnel. The objective of the EU-funded Corona-Quick project is to develop a rapid, easy, specific and economical screening test for C-19 that will achieve results in less than one hour. The test is developed as a lateral flow strip similar to the pregnancy test and will be used to screen asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic individuals, who pose the greatest risk for community transmission. The project will validate the diagnostic accuracy and screening efficacy of the test with the aim of bringing it to the market within 12 months.
