Scientists have developed a special ticket-sized chip, which will make the Kovid-19 probe easier and get results on a smartphone in less than 55 minutes. A fingerprint microfluidic chip developed by scientists at Rice University in the US Sars analyzes of nucleocapsid (N) of Cove-2 in the blood samples taken. According to the study published in the research journal ACS Sensors, the chip measures the concentrations of the SARS Cove 2 nucleocapsid (N) protein from a blood serum pierced on the finger, a biomarker of Kovid-19.
An easy approach to RT-PCR
binds the SARS Cove-2N protein to the NanoBids chip and transmits it to an electrochemical sensor that detects the amount of biomarker. The researchers stated that this method of investigation is much easier than RT-PCR testing. Studyer Peter Lilihoj said that you can do the whole process related to the investigation in one place. It is also easy to use. There is also no need for laboratory in this.
Other methods will detect early
University researchers developed the microneedle patch to detect malaria last year. The study examined blood samples of healthy people and those infected with Kovid-19 for examination. The researchers stated that the microchip detects the SARSKOV2N protein in a maximum of 55 minutes.
