ANCON Technologies trialling new 10-minute coronavirus test

Published: 1

Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has started trials using ANCON technology for a new test which could tell if a person has coronavirus in as little as 10 minutes.

The new test, developed by ANCON Medical, would require the patient to breathe into a mouthpiece for one minute so that a sample of the chemicals in their breath can be collected.

These chemicals are then analysed by a supercomputer and compared to those found in the breath of infected patients.
