A sensitive photonic nanodevice provides rapid and quantitative diagnostic of COVID-19

A team of researchers led by members of the ICN2 NanoBiosensors and Bioanalytical Applications Group presents on the pages of ‘Sensors & Diagnostics’ an innovative photonic biosensor that can detect the presence of the SARS-COV-2 virus at very low concentrations in a sample. It can also provide a quantitative measure of the viral load in less than 20 minutes, which is crucial to prevent the spread of the infection and to intervene quickly with the appropriate treatment.
