Copenhagen Nanosystems ready to develop and produce an affordable diagnostic saliva test for COVID-19 infection
The final product is intended to be an inexpensive supplement to the core PCR tests and is aimed at rapid and accurate infection detection. The test can be performed in hospitals, emergency rooms, nursing homes, schools, universities and companies. In addition, the test results are recorded digitally and can subsequently constitute the basic data for geographical infection maps updated in real time.
The idea of being able to transform ordinary inexpensive analytics equipment to test diagnostically when the needed will make a difference. This is especially true in poor countries, which will soon be hit hard by this pandemic
The team is set to start this week. Copenhagen Nano Systems hope to raise enough money to start producing 50,000 tests and wants to finance the development with a network loan.
