It is a matter of time to get corona test report in different countries including Bangladesh. The patient cannot be called ‘infected’ until the report is received. By then he could have spread the virus among many more. To solve this problem, scientists have developed a device that can quickly detect coronavirus infections in just 90 minutes. News BBC Bangla.
Scientists at Imperial College London have shown how a small computer chip can work in a laboratory, and current tests of coronavirus detection of the infection that are being found will yield exactly the same results. The difference is that this device will take only 90 minutes to give fruit. Eight hospitals in England have been able to successfully and quickly identify patients carrying coronavirus using this device.
A company called DNNAZ is making this device. They say that if one can take a swab or sample from the throat or nose, then he can use this device. The swab should be placed in a blue cartridge or container containing the chemicals required for testing. The container should then be inserted into a small shoe-sized device that will analyze the sample. That container has to be discarded after one use.
The study was published in the science journal Lancet Microbes, according to James Gallaher, BC’s science and health correspondent. There, it was said that the samples collected from 36 people were compared with the instruments of the DNA company and the results of the two tests were compared by testing them in a conventional laboratory.
Grayam Cook, a professor at Imperial College, said: ‘The results of the two tests are similar, which is very reassuring. It’s important to keep track of the results, especially when you’re trying to market a new technology, “he said. Acquired. ‘
Laboratory tests where it is said that the patient does not have the virus, the test of this device has the same result. Where lab tests say the patient has a virus, this fast-term test gives the same result in 94% of cases. There is a problem here. That is, it is possible to test only one sample at a time with a box-machine. So if an organization uses a box, it will not be possible to test more than 16 samples throughout the day.
