UAE invents Covid-19 laser testing technology that shows results in ‘seconds’

-

A medical company based in Abu Dhabi has developed an equipment that shows Covid-19 results much faster.

The new technology is invented by QuantLase Imaging Lab, the medical-research arm of the Abu Dhabi Exchange-listed International Holdings Company, IHC.

The laser testing equipment uses a CMOS detector and can do mass-scale screening with results available in seconds.

“Our laser-based DPI (Diffractive Phase Interferomoetry) technique, based on optical-phase modulation, is able to give a signature of infection within a few seconds. What’s more, it is user-friendly, non-invasive and low-cost. The device is suitable for use not only in hospitals and public places like cinemas and shopping malls, but with a little hands-on training it can be used for in-house testing and monitoring. We believe it will be a game-changer in tackling the spread of the coronavirus,” Dr. Pramod Kumar, who leads the team in the lab, was quoted as saying by Khaleej Times.

The doctor added that they hope they will be able to roll out the product in the market in a few months.

“As far as early stage detection is concerned, our DPI technique is capable to detect as soon as the blood cell gets infected. Our aim is to eventually reach the maximum level of accuracy,” Kumar further added.
