Scientists have developed the easiest way to determine COVID-19 in humans



Bubbler converts RNA from viral particles exhaled by the patient into DNA. This process is called RNA reverse transcription. This device is also capable of providing additional information, such as the virus strain.

70 patients were selected to test the device, who were treated at a Rhode Island hospital between May 2020 and January 2021. Tongue scrapings and samples of air exhaled for 15 seconds were collected from patients with Covid-19. Subsequently, they were compared with a swab from the nasopharynx of the same patients.

Research results have shown that SARS-CoV-2 can be easily detected in exhaled air, and the Bubbler is useful for predicting lower respiratory tract injury. According to experts, this device is capable of detecting coronavirus more efficiently than nasopharyngeal swabs. The fact is that the lower respiratory tract is more susceptible to viral load compared to the upper respiratory tract.
