Portable Device for COVID-19 Nucleic Acid Tests

We have seen the recent surge of COVID-19 because we cannot afford another massive shut-down. A portable and timely detection device for the COVID-19 nucleic test is more desirable. In this proposal, we propose to develop an impedance-based nucleic acid testing device. Our LOC devices are low cost, user friendly alternatives to centralized lab tests. By partnering with Hidaca Ltd., our ultimate goal is to have this made-in-Canada technology available on the market as soon as possible to benefit Canadians and the Canadian economy.
