RUSSIA - Scientists Invent Express Coronavirus Test Device

Arno Froese

A Russian company has developed an express coronavirus test device that provides the result in only 15 minutes, the National Technical Initiative announced. The new method undergoes final tests and the device might be presented to the public this autumn.

The device uses the isothermal polymerase chain reaction. To perform the analysis, a mucous sample from the nose or the throat, says the Initiative, who assisted the Medical Biological Union (MBU) Company in creation of the device.

In early February, South China Morning Post reported that Chinese doctors began using a portable device, capable of diagnosing the 2019-nCoV (COVID-19), coronavirus in 40 minutes. In early March, Russian scientists reported that they created a device, capable of diagnosing the coronavirus in 1.5 hours.

Arno's commentary

We are being inundated with all kinds of reports targeting coronavirus; in this case, a 15-minute, portable device to test for the virus. Needless to say, there are many other nations, medical universities, and companies who are desperately involving themselves with the study of the novel coronavirus, how to recognize it quickly, and what to do about it to avoid a global catastrophe. 

Will they be successful? We think yes, just as many other scientific institutions the world over will succeed in one way or another. But we reiterate: this is not the end. After the coronavirus, something else will come along. Then the world will be more prepared, for the coronavirus has laid the blueprint for medical globalism. Nations will join together to mitigate the severe effect on the financial and merchandising system the world over.
