With society on pause and most of the workforce at home, we need quick solutions on how to get people that aren’t carrying the virus back to work. Luckily, promising solutions are being developed and tested as we speak. We want to take a moment to congratulate our client Nanoscent on the groundbreaking work they are doing and tell you about their current project, which aims to enable rapid-mass screening to mitigate the virus.
Coming from early cancer detection and early identification of industry leaks, as well as air and water pollution, the Nanoscent technology was widely applicable already. Meanwhile, disruptive times call for innovative ways of applying available technology. First trials are giving hope that Nanoscent technology might be able to pick up on the COVID-19 virus in our nasal exhaling breath. The big task now is to validate and refine a testing and screening procedure, that is both rapid and precise.
