Recently, according tomedia reports, several British universities have jointly developed a new coronavirus kit, can be 30 minutes to get test results, and can use their own without having to send to the laboratory. Specifically, the study was developed by researchers from The University of London, Brunel University, Lancaster University and Surrey University, using “artificial intelligence, image processing, molecular virology and extensive experience in applied technologies.”
In addition to 30 minutes of results, the kit can also directly link to smartphone feedback test results, can be done solo, without the need for medical staff.
The kit is also very cheap, at just 100 pounds (about 841 yuan), and can be processed with six nasal swabs at a time, and if fully utilized, it costs an average of 4 pounds (about 33 yuan) per person.
This kit is simple, convenient, intelligent and inexpensive, making it ideal for rapid popularization and large-scale testing.
However, such products still need to pass clinical trials, and it is not clear when they will be available, and as much as possible.
