Covid-19 results in less than a minute?

Written by: Our Bureau

(Our Bureau, May 25) A new Covid-19 test will make results available in less than a minute, at least for Singaporeans. The island nation has granted conditional approval to a non-invasive breathing procedure — BreFence Go Covid-19 Breath Test System — developed by National University of Singapore spin-off Breathonix. Using a mass spectrometer, the breath analyser-style system can detect the virus’ presence with more than 90% accuracy in less than a minute, Breathonix said. Even people who do not have a medical background can administer it with basic training. Breathonix is in talks with several local and overseas organisations to deploy the system.
