Personal smartphone-integrated virus sensors & app for rapid & accurate saliva self-screening with option to share results before entering common space.

We propose here to develop a potential point-of-care (POC) diagnostic system, using a chip-based potentiometric sensor, which directly detects the presence of the entire SARS-CoV-2 virion or its associated capsid proteins, using a 3D molecular imprinting technique. The technique was previously shown to be comparable to Elisa in accuracy of CEA cancer marker detection in humans with 1/100 of the test volume. In a recent publication, we demonstrated that the technique could detect ZIKV in...

Personal smart phone-integrated virus sensors & app for rapid & accurate saliva self-screening

The latest SARS-CoV-2 pandemic is spreading so rapidly across the world that health care facilities, even in developed countries, have inadequate resources to contain it. A vaccine is still many months away and based on previous experience with the 2002-03 SARS-CoV pandemic its effectivity is yet to be determined. Universal testing has been proposed as a key element in slowing the spread, since a large fraction of carriers are asymptomatic. Unfortunately, due to the large demand, test kits...
