EPFL, SUPSI and IOR receive a Swiss National Science Foundation (SNFS) grant within the NRP 78 “Covid-19” programme to develop a microfluidics device to detect SARS-CoV-2 virus

The project “Development of a microfluidic platform for real-time detection of SARS-CoV-2 virus based on multifunctional silica membrane biosensors” (MicroCoVSens) aims to realize a portable device for real-time detection of SARS-CoV-2 virus from saliva samples through minimal reagents consumption, without preparation requirements, at hand of non-specialist personnel. The group headed by Prof. Bertoni at IOR will be involved in the identification of the RNA sequences of SARS-CoV-2 on which to bu...
