S. Korea develops biosensor platform to screen COVID-19 in 30 minutes Updated: 2022-01-26 17:11:42 KST

Now to a new breakthrough in COVID-19 testing.
A team of scientists at the Korea Institute of Science and Technology has developed a unique screening method to detect COVID-19 within just 30 minutes.
It's a highly sensitive, portable biosensor and KIST says the results are as accurate as a PCR test.
The new platform detects the virus through a special receptor enzyme shared by all known COVID-19 variants.
Head of the team Lee Kwan-hyi says the new method will soon be commercialized after it goes through a standardization process.
