This article will shed briefly a light on the newly invented device that allows you to get tested on Coronavirus just within one minute. It’s another step forward to fight the disease and allow the society to isolate the infected and isolate those preventing the spread.
Where can this device be applied
There will be multiple uses of this device around the world, especially when the issue related to fighting the COVID-19 is standing very acute amongst all countries.
For, instance, it can be deployed in airports and cruise ports right before entering the security line. Right now, there are not many people in the airports, and, besides, considering that it’s an instant check, it won’t take much time and won’t hold anyone else in the long waiting lines. However, it would prevent the corona carrier to be blended with the crowd and disseminate the disease any further.
It can be also used in the entrance to the Universities and schools where a large number of students could occur simultaneously. Another application can be suggested at the customs while crossing the borderlines.
It could be easily used in the hospitals to separate and isolate the carriers to prevent the spread.
Everyone knows, that the virus mostly deadly to elderly people. So the device can be easily applied in geriatrics and seniors homes. The virus could be revealed in the early stages if anyone infected joined or visited these institutions.
There might be other applications for these devices; however, the aforementioned ones could be of some examples for immediate use.
How does this device work
Now, you could wonder how this device actually works.
When you breathe out through the device, the stream goes through the chip that is removed from the device and placed into the hermetic capsule. Then the chip is placed in the spectrometer, where it’s scanned for about 20 seconds and then, after 2 seconds of mathematical processing, the conclusion can be made whether you deal with the carrier or not.
This virus is like a Nano-particle or, even, as a quantum dot with a diameter varies from 100 to 140 Nano microns and has the specific electrical properties that can be detected using physics, photonics, and electrical engineering.
Ultimately, this virus resonates THz frequency and being placed into the spectrometer can be revealed easily and promptly within a short period of time. It’s all recorded on the spectrogram as an increased amplitude.
Even though the carrier doesn’t feel any immediate symptoms, the machine recognizes the virus fast without mistakes.
Each machine has a throughput of about 4,000 people per day, so it accommodates quite intensive traffic through before the chip is exhausted.
As you can see, the speed, quantity, and eventually quality deserve attention.
Who did invent this machine
It’s a fact, but this invention along with many others previously invented once was made in Israel.
The research was conducted at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, by the team of scientists led by professor Gabby Sarusi. And all this was achieved because of the extraordinary and out of box thinking of the team members. It required the close collaboration of the different disciplines and sciences to create an amazing device that allows testing up to 4,000 people per day.
This device was tested systematically by Sarusi’s team along with Israeli’s Defence Ministry to process and validate the results. The results showed 90% accuracy of the tests.
This is a handheld device of the size that has a replaceable chip and blow in the nozzle to avoid any contamination.
What is the Device Status
Now, Food and Drug Administration (FDA) was conducting the tests on this device. All is left is to conclude the results and efficiency of the device.
Upon their approval, there will be another fast-tracking system in place to combat COVID-19.
It means the tests could be commenced in public as soon as September of 2020.
We are proudly representing many scientific and engineering achievements, which were materialized and developed in Israel in the field of greenhouses and their applications.
These solutions are as listed below but not limited to:
- Greenhouses watering and sprinkling systems
- Greenhouse technology for marijuana grows ops
- Greenhouses humidification and automation
- Greenhouse coconuts growing beds technology
- Seasonal and most efficient techniques of growing in greenhouses
