First-of-Its-Kind Saliva-Based Rapid Test Uses DNA Aptamer to Detect COVID-19

A newly-launched affordable, saliva-based rapid test uses a DNA aptamer instead of an antibody to detect COVID-19 and is read by a UV Spectrophotometer. DNA aptamers are believed to offer a structural advantage over other enzyme-based approaches in sensitivity, specificity, quality of production, lower costs, test formats and other areas. More...
