A new COVID-19 test that reduces testing time from 30 minutes to less than five and delivers accurate results has been developed by researchers at the University of Birmingham.


The researchers believe their method could deliver a test that is not only fast but also sufficiently sensitive. The test does not require samples to be treated at high temperatures, and it can be performed using standard laboratory equipment, making it readily deployable.



 

버밍엄 대학, 5분 미만 새 COVID-19 시험법 개발


   현재의 COVID-19 테스트 시간을 30분에서 5분 미만으로 단축하고 정확한 결과를 제공하는 새로운 COVID-19 시험법이 버밍엄 대학의 연구원들에 의해 개발되었다.




연구원들은 이 방법이 빠를 뿐만 아니라 충분히 민감한 실험을 할 수 있다고 믿고 있다. 이 시험은 표본을 고온에서 취급할 필요가 없으며 표준 실험실 장비를 사용하여 수행할 수 있으므로 쉽게 배치할 수 있다.

A preprint paper (yet to be peer reviewed) describing the new process has been published on medRxiv in which the researchers demonstrate the rapidity and sensitivity of their method using patient sample RNA provided by Public Health England.


Professor Tim Dafforn from the University's School of Biosciences commented: "We have designed a new method for testing that combines the ease of use and speed of lateral flow testing with the inherent sensitivity of an RNA test. It features reagents that can be used in existing point of care devices and meets the need for testing in high throughput, near-patient, settings where people may be waiting in line for their results."


The most accurate COVID-19 tests currently in use require detecting viral RNA - the most common of these use a technique called PCR (polymerase chain reaction). The PCR test is a two-step process, which involves first converting to the RNA to DNA and then 'amplifying' the material many times over.




The new Birmingham test simplifies the method to a single step and uses an alternative amplification method called EXPAR (Exponential Amplification Reaction).

UC San Diego installs COVID-19 test vending machines on campus

Self-testing is nothing new at UCSD. The university started experimenting with it last spring as a way to get students back onto campus.


 

  

   겨울 방학을 마치고 UC 샌디에이고로 돌아오는 학생들은 이제 COVID-19 시험에 접근할 수 있는 새로운 방법을 갖게 되었다.


대학 관계자들은 "학습으로 돌아가기" 프로그램의 일환으로 무료 자가 테스트 키트와 함께 11대의 자동판매기를 캠퍼스 곳곳에 설치했다. 그들 중 대부분은 거주지 근처에 위치해 있다.




학교 규칙은 학생이 캠퍼스에 살거나 직접 수업을 듣는 경우 일주일에 한 번 COVID-19에 대한 테스트를 받아야 한다고 명시하고 있다. 만약 학생들이 시험을 준수하지 않는다면, 그들은 징계를 받을 수 있다.

SAN DIEGO — Students returning back to UC San Diego from winter break now have a new way to access COVID-19 tests.


University officials just installed 11 vending machines throughout campus with free self-testing kits as part of its “Return To Learn” program. Most of them are located near residence halls.


School rules state that if a student lives on campus or attends any in-person classes, they must be tested for COVID-19 once a week. If students do not comply with the testing, they could face disciplinary action.
