ATIVA’s rapid low-cost COVID-19 test may provide earlier detection and a safer community
The greatest challenge we face is the spread of infection before symptoms appear. We all want to protect our loved ones, so how do we know if we are carrying the virus? Physical symptoms (fever, cough) appear too late to stop the spread. The nasal swab PCR tests suffer from sampling errors, slow time to results, and are expensive. Early detection of infected people is the key to protecting our most vulnerable people in aged-care centers, cancer wards, our valued frontline workers (EMTs, nurses) and our essential workers in critical infrastructure or food processing jobs.
