A breakthrough has been discovered in the fight against COVID 19

UTS Scientists led by Professor Dayong Jin  in association with industry partner Alcolizer have come up with a fast and more economical test for Coronavirus.

It is a saliva based test utilising UTS’s customised iStrip technology combined with the roadside drug and alcohol tests devices that Perth based company Alcolizer currently produce.

It means that you will know within about 15 minutes whether you have COVID 19 or not – faster and more accurately than the current nose and throat swab methods.
