A Simple and Inexpensive Single-tube Isothermal POC System for Pathogen Detection
A high-volume, low-cost diagnostic test that is easy to use and provides results in under an hour
LLNL researchers have developed a high-volume, low-cost diagnostic test that is easy to use and provides results in under an hour. The testing platform will provide emergency responders and other medical professionals with the ability to screen individuals using oral and nasal samples, and obtain results in approximately 30 minutes. This point-of-care testing approach will enable rapid triage of a high volume of patients, without needing to send a sample to a laboratory for testing and then waiting for results.
The easy-to-use, compact testing kit consists of a single, disposable tube, which is used throughout the process to collect samples from patients and obtain a positive or negative test result. Using this approach, where all items are contained
