Development of a portable and sensitive serological test for COVID-19

Luna Nanotech is in the process of developing an automated portable device for diagnosis of infectious pathogens. As part of his PhD project the intern has participated in the development of a rapid multiplex benchtop serological test for Covid-19. In this project the intern will work with Luna Nanotech scientists and engineers to adapt this benchtop serological test to be used in the diagnostic device to allow rapid automated detection of Covid-19 specific antibodies. The outcome of this project will be a market ready Canadian-made device that can be used for rapid diagnosis of Covid-19 infections.
