The specialists of the Russian Biomedical Agency have developed a device that is able, within 27 minutes, with a high degree of accuracy, to detect the presence of the Corona virus in humans.
“Now in one of the agency’s institutions, namely at the Institute of Physical and Chemical Medicine of the Russian Agency for Biological Medicine, a device has been developed to determine the presence of viral antigen, which is based on the isothermal amplification method,” said Daria Kryuchko, head of the agency’s Department of Translational Medicine and Innovative Technologies. The diagnostic system determines the presence of an antigen with a high degree of certainty within 27 minutes.”
Kryuchko pointed out that the diagnostic system that was devised to identify the “SARS-Cove-2” virus (Corona) will be able, with some improvements, to detect other antigens.
