Why is it important?

Because there is no fast and easy way to know if you have COVID-19-this is a non-invasive and non-intrusive test which gives results within seconds, it is a point of care device meaning it can be used at home, in the office, at school, in church, at games, theaters, restaurants, planes and trains, anywhere and everywhere. It is also affordable testing and it can be either a personalized or a public health screening tool.


It is important because it revolutionizes health diagnostics.
