Summary: This project aims to develop a point of care saliva test (the Oral Test Panel) for the COVID-19 virus that can detect virus antigens for symptomatic and asymptomatic subjects with a clinical sensitivity 2+ orders of magnitude greater LOD than LFIA sensors in the market and possibly down to a molecular level as shown in bench testing developed as part of ARC IDEAL hub funded work.
