EMBEDDED BIOSENSORS FOR COVID-19 FIELD TESTS
In response to the current sanitary crisis, Grapheal is developing a self-test for the diagnosis of Covid 19 infection based on saliva analysis. This all-electronic test detects the presence of the virus and not the immune response commonly found in current generation tests. It allows the result to be electronic captured at the heart of the device which speeds up the diagnosis and allows secure digital transfer of the result.
When sensitized with appropriate anti bodies, which target the proteins at the surface of SARS-Cov-2 virus, graphene can detect the virus's presence in body fluids, thus providing highly efficient diagnostic tests.
