Low-Cost COVID-19 Testing Platform Combines Sensitivity of PCR and Speed of Antigen Tests

A new study has shown that tiny nets woven from DNA strands can ensnare the spike protein of the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19, lighting up the virus for a fast-yet-sensitive diagnostic test – and also impeding it from infecting cells, thus opening a new possible route to antiviral treatment.
