Heathrow Airport in the UK has trialled three rapid point of care Covid-19 tests which may prevent the implementation of blanket quarantine rules and facilitate the recovery of the aviation sector.
The trials were conducted on airport staff and currently, the findings are being evaluated.
One of the tests, where Heathrow worked with I-Abra to trial their Virolens testing device, claims to provide the results in as little as 30 seconds. A machine learning holographic microscope, the device is designed to identify if a person is carrying the disease.
TT Electronics has been working with iAbra to design, develop and test the prototype Virolens® screening device and to specify and design the manufacturing processes.
