Japan Develops Corona Virus Testing Kit, Results Out in 10 Minutes
Corona virus test results require a long waiting time. However, Japanese scientists are trying to overcome the problem of waiting for these results.
A group of Japanese researchers has succeeded in making a corona virus test kit. They claim, their corona virus test kit can give results in just 10 minutes.
Quoted by Ubergizmo, Monday (3/22/2020), although not a drug, at least a new breakthrough Japanese researchers can provide hope for people who have symptoms of the corona virus, but are not sure whether they are contracting the disease.
The testing kit is currently undergoing clinical testing in Nagasaki Prefecture of Japan. The tool involves taking a swab from the patient’s nose and throat and using fluorescent coloring to indicate whether the person is infected with a virus or not.
The kit is also relatively small and compact. The weight of the testing kit is only 2.4 kg, so it makes it ideal to carry around and use throughout the country.
10-minute testing time is also faster than some other methods developed in other countries. For example Canada, where researchers developed a 30-minute testing kit.
As is known, the corona virus has spread to a number of countries, including Indonesia. As of Sunday, March 22, 2020 alone there were 514 positive cases in the country.
