#AceHealthReport – Aug.03: New rapid tests that can detect coronavirus in just 90 minutes will start to be used in care homes and labs from next week: The two new types of test do not require trained health staff to operate them and can also pick up other winter viruses: Currently most results from tests carried out in-person are returned the following day, while home kits take longer:
#Coronavirus Report: New LamPore tests which detect #COVID19 in 90 minutes to be rolled out next week
It comes after the prime minister said he wants 500,000 coronavirus tests to be available every day by October.
Health Secretary Matt Hancock said: “The fact these tests can detect flu as well as COVID-19 will be hugely beneficial as we head into winter, so patients can follow the right advice to protect themselves and others.”
Boris Johnson says he wants 500,000 coronavirus tests to be available every day by October amid fears of possible further waves in the winter: 450,000 LamPORE tests will be made available to care homes and labs in England from next week, with millions more to come later in the year: The machines that process the tests come in desktop and palm versions and will be used in ‘pop-up labs’ as well as in existing facilities.
A new DNA test will also be rolled out with 5,000 Nudgebox machines given to hospitals across the UK from September: Eight London hospitals are already using the machines which analyse DNA in nose swabs to detect the virus.
