3D-nanoprinted electrodes dramatically cut time for COVID-19 antibody testing

Written by Vivian Xie

A new antibody test incorporating 3D-nanoprinted electrodes has been reported to detect SARS-CoV-2 antibodies within seconds. A collaboration led by researchers at Carnegie Mellon University (PA, USA) has reported a COVID-19 antibody detection method using nanomaterial-based biosensing, which is able to report viral detection within seconds, a breakthrough that could significantly improve studies of vaccine and naturally induced immune responses. Detection of the SARS-CoV-2 virus has been an ongoing endeavor in the effort to contain the COVID-19 pandemic. Rapid and accurate testing to identify antibodies for COVID-19 has been key to understanding the infection rates of the disease and in...
