Fighting Viral Outbreaks with Rapid Point-of-Care Testing using Screen-printed Electrodes

Jun 18 2020 Read 785 Times

Point-of-care (POC) testing with screen-printed electrodes allows rapid testing of populations for viral outbreaks at affordable costs, without the need for trained specialists and/or complicated equipment. A free white paper from Metrohm discusses the viability of electrochemical testing citing a number of recent studies on the possibility of POC testing for viruses of various kinds. The white paper is of particular value for research groups working on solutions for rapid POC testing in the face of the current Corona pandemic.

The white paper discusses the possibility of rapid, POC testing for viruses of various kinds using cost effective and easy-to-use screen-printed electrodes (SPEs). Compared with other methods such as virus isolation cultures, enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), and other molecular methods (PCR, RT-PCR), electrochemical methods with SPEs promise straightforward, affordable testing at the point of care.
