Roszdravnadzor has registered a test system for the rapid detection of COVID-19 – RBC

The test is based on a method that allows you to analyze the interaction of substances in real time after mixing the necessary components.

While maintaining a sufficiently high sensitivity, the test takes about 30 minutes, which is significantly less than the time spent on traditional PCR analysis. TASS the statement of scientists. As a result, the number of tests performed by laboratories is increasing.

The test does not require expensive equipment installed in stationary laboratories, therefore, in the future, the technique can be used for express diagnostics in non-laboratory conditions.

Such testing will allow both to identify patients at an early stage of infection for subsequent therapy, and to interrupt the chain of infections, reducing the spread of SARS-CoV2.

RBC turned to the press service of the ICBFM SB RAS for a comment.

In early September 2021, the Federal Biomedical Agency reportedthat FMBA specialists have developed a device that diagnoses human coronavirus infection in less than half an hour.

In the same month, specialists from the Central Research Institute of Epidemiology of Rospotrebnadzor toldthat developed a test system that can detect COVID-19 RNA in any biological fluids.

First Deputy Minister of Health of Russia Viktor Fisenko statedthat the accuracy of Russian test systems for detecting coronavirus did not decrease with the appearance of a new strain.
