 Now you can do Covid-19 test on your smartphone, the result will come in 55 minutes, scientists did amazing


 Regarding the new chip, it is said that it will give you accurate results in a short time.  To test the device, the researchers had to rely on the people who donated the serum.


Scientists have developed a stamp size chip that allows you to test the Covid-19 yourself.  This test can be done on your smartphone and the result will be available in just 55 minutes.  The microfluidic chip has been developed by researchers at Rice University.  The research report on this chip states that it will report the corona on your smartphone within 55 minutes via the nanobeads chip.  This process is much easier than the swab test.


 Peter Lilhose, a mechanical engineer at Rice Lab, explains how great this device is that you won't have to go to the lab for tests.  He further said that you will not need to go to any lab or any pharmacy.  The whole process will be done through one phone.


Regarding the new chip, it is said that it will give you accurate results in a short time.  To test the device, researchers here had to rely on people who donated serum and who were corona positive.  A device called potentiostat is connected to the Google Pixel 2 phone which completes the test with just 230 picogram of serum.  This test is similar to the antibody test, as it also provides information about the antibody.


 Explain that a tube is used after inserting the sample on the chip.  The chip then contains a magnet that carries the serum directly to the electrochemical sensor.  Finally the chip transmits the rest of the information to the app in the phone after which the whole process is completed and finally you get the result of Corona on the smartphone.


 Explain that last year the same team teamed up with Rice University graduate students to develop a technology that could detect malaria.  So if this technology is available to most people in the future, then to some extent it will be easier for the world to stop corona because there are still many people who are not getting their quid test due to fear.
