Developing a rapid at-home COVID-19 test

Some exciting work is being done in our lab in collaboration with the Hardy and Andrew Research Group! Here, we’re developing a “smart swab” at-home test kit. Due to the current pandemic, the most important aspect to slowing down the spread is through testing. Our design is similar to a pregnancy test, where one can take a swab of either their nose or throat and observe a color change due to the presence of a protein found from the virus.
