The Corona virus is mostly spread by infected persons who do not yet show any symptoms of the disease. Infections with the coronavirus can be diagnosed at an early stage with special laboratory tests. However, these tests are expensive and test capacity is limited in many places. In contrast, well-established, mass-market standard blood tests offer the possibility of detecting infections on the basis of characteristic parameter changes.
Mobile Rapid Test and Digital Diagnostics
The aim of CODECT is to develop a mobile and digitally supported test procedure for Covid 19 diseases. A rapid test device for the acquisition of blood values and their digital transmission to an analysis unit enables flexible use at the point of care. The analysis unit automatically examines received data for disease-related parameter changes. Based on the analytical results, laboratory physicians make the final diagnosis.
