Nanophotonic biosensors for rapid diagnostics of COVID-19 and other respiratory virus infections

In a thorough review recently published in ACS Sensors, researchers from the ICN2 NanoBiosensors and Bioanalytical Applications group, led by Prof. Laura M. Lechuga, provide an overview of the current diagnostic techniques for respiratory viruses, as the SARS-CoV-2, causing agent of COVID-19, and discuss how nanophotonic biosensor technologies can contribute to the development of new fast, highly sensitive and affordable diagnostic tests.
