A pioneering application of the scientists of the Agricultural University of Athens, will allow us, within 3 minutes, to see if we have been infected with coronavirus, even on the first day of infection.
Spyros Kintzios, Rector of the Agricultural University, and director of the cell technology laboratory of the Department of Biotechnology, spoke in Athens 9.84 and Maria Pavlou.
As he explained "awe developed a biosensor, which can be integrated into a easy to use platform and offers lightning detection of the SARS-CoV-1 coronavirus S2 surface protein, the most important indicator of the virus, first day of possible infection, even if there are no symptoms "
He stressed that the results of clinical trials showed that method presents high reliability: "We organized two clinical studies with the Medical School of the University of Athens and with the" Sotiria "hospital, the results we had ranged from 95% to 99,9%"
Finally he announced that "The university in collaboration with distinguished Greek scientists is a pioneer in the creation of cellular biosensors of extremely advanced technology not only for common viruses such as influenza but also for many other dangerous infectious diseases."
