SCI faculty members from the U of M Medical School have developed two new rapid COVID-19 diagnostic tests

SCI faculty members from the University of Minnesota Medical School have developed two new rapid diagnostic tests for COVID-19.  The technology for both tests uses the cutting-edge CRISPR/Cas9 system.  One test detects COVID-19 variants and the other helps to differentiate between COVID-19 and other illnesses with similar symptoms.   Learn more.
