Inspired by the current COVID-19 pandemic and the lack of accessible testing, we set out to develop of a new, point-of-care rapid diagnostic kit. Throughout the past couple of months, we studied the field of molecular diagnostics to gather information and performed experiments, which eventually led to the preliminary proof for our detection method. On this page we will discuss our project background, goals and where we are now.
