Developing Transformational Technologies to Combat Viruses
ULTRA-FAST COVID-19 DETECTION SENSOR
Early detection is one of the best ways to prevent the spread of viruses like SARS-CoV-2. That’s where the EviroTECH Ultra-Fast COVID-19 Detection Sensor comes in. The nickel-based sensor analyzes electrochemical interactions between the sensor probe and viral proteins contained in saliva—all within 10 milliseconds. This ultra-fast detection makes it easy for schools, hospitals, universities, and other institutions to test large populations quickly and effectively.
Technology that works
The Ultra-Fast COVID-19 Detection Sensor uses a rotating disk electrode to analyze the electrochemical interactions between the sensor probe and the saliva sample. This is a proven technology that is not only fast and accurate but designed for longevity.
Fast, Accurate Results
PCR tests can take a minimum of 24 hours to process and require a high enough viral load to detect the virus. Our Ultra-Fast COVID-19 Detection Sensor is an antigen-based electrochemical device that can detect COVID-19 in just 10 milliseconds. Unlike antibody-based testing, the Ultra-Fast COVID-19 Detection Sensor can detect SARS-CoV-2 spike proteins at the earliest stage of infection using saliva. The results take less than two minutes of total processing time.
Less Invasive, Saliva-Based Test
No one enjoys the nasal swab that’s the standard approach to COVID-19 testing. The swab unpleasant and invasive. People who fear medical procedures may hesitate to get tested. Our saliva-based test makes the test easier to administer in populations, like school-age children, where testing is critical to slowing the spread of the disease.
Highlights of the Ultra-Fast COVID-19 Detection Sensor
The EviroTECH Ultra-Fast COVID-19 Detection Sensor is saliva-based, making the testing process easier and more comfortable.
The detection sensor processes samples in 10 milliseconds and processes results in less than 2 minutes.
The sensor is antigen-based, allowing it to find the COVID-19 spike protein at an earlier stage of infection.
The saliva-based test is 100% pain free. No more uncomfortable nasal swabs. Just drool into the test tube to get results.
