Scientists at oxford university have now developed a rapid antigen kit to test the corona virus, which can complete the entire process in just 5 minutes. Researchers has released details on Thursday. At the same time, he has said that they can be used to conduct mass testing of a large number of people at airports and businesses.
The key to this device is that with great accuracy, other viruses and corona viruses will be able to distinguish and detect it.
Available from 2021
“Our method is something that quickly detects virus particles,” said Achiels Kapendis, professor at Oxford’s physics department. It will be very simple, very fast and low cost,” he said.
The researchers hope that the production of this Rapid Antigen Testing Kit will begin from the beginning of 2021. It will also be available extensively within 6 months for use.
Rapid antigen tests have been very useful and popular for testing corona viruses in the last few months. Researchers say that once the device is in use, its cost will come down further. He said the price will be lower than the existing available device.
The test will be even more successful in the winter season as the corona virus will once again peak.
