UCF researchers develop rapid virus test with PCR-like accuracy

University of Central Florida researchers have developed a device that detects viruses – including COVID-19 — as fast as but more accurately than current antigen-based rapid detection tests. The optical sensor the researchers developed uses nanotechnology to accurately identify viruses in seconds from blood samples. They say the device can tell with 95% percent accuracy […]
