Israeli tech may help drastically reduce coronavirus diagnostic time

From the time of the outbreak of coronavirus, one amongst one in every of the foremost pressing medical challenges that doctors in zones plagued by the crisis faced is that there must be a test for a high number of infected people in a short amount of their time. New technology has been developed by researchers at Bar-Ilan University might support them in the mission, drastically cutting the time needed to research saliva samples. Dr. Amos Danielli from the Alexander Kofkin Faculty of Engineering has established a technology for sensitive detection of virus-specific RNA sequences in 2007 to deal with cattle diseases. Since then, the very similar technology has been adapted for multiple viruses, including Zika. This new development can reduce the testing time for corona virus from 1 hour to just 15 minutes which means by using this advanced technology the samples can be tested very quickly followed by the medications.
