A team used to making pollutant-detection systems is adapting their technologies to spot coronavirus.

ETH Zurich researchers have developed a biosensor specifically ready to pick up the RNA genome of SRA-Cov-2.

While the biosensor is not an alternative to clinical diagnostics, the scientists see the system potentially operating in crowded environments like train stations and hospitals.
