A Fast, Accurate, Equipment-Free Diagnostic Test for SARS-CoV-2 and its Variants

Aug. 29, 2022

A team of researchers from Princeton University and the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard have created an easy-to-use diagnostic test for COVID infection that is more sensitive than the commonly used at-home antigen tests, and that also allows for the rapid and specific detection of SARS-CoV-2 variants in point-of-care settings.

The story features work by Cameron Myhrvold, assistant professor in the Department of Molecular Biology at Princeton and NJ ACTS pilot grant awardee.

The study was published May 30, 2022 in the journal Nature Biomedical Engineering.
