New Immunosensor Paves Way to Rapid POC Testing for COVID-19 and Emerging Infectious Diseases

Researchers have developed a new immunosensor based on Quenchbody technology that shows great potential as a fast, inexpensive, and convenient tool to detect SARS-CoV-2. This highly efficient diagnostic approach will be useful not only for point-of-care testing, but also for high-throughput epidemiological studies of COVID-19 and other emerging infectious diseases.
