3D-nanoprinted COVID-19 antibody test dramatically cuts time for detection

Written by Vivian Xie

A new antibody test utilizing 3D-nanoprinted electrodes has been reported to detect SARS-CoV-2 antibodies within seconds. A collaboration led by researchers at Carnegie Mellon University (PA, USA) has reported a COVID-19 antibody detection method created using aerosol jet 3D printing able to report detection within seconds, a breakthrough that could significantly improve studies of vaccine and naturally induced immune responses. Detection of the SARS-CoV-2 virus has been an ongoing endeavor in the effort to contain the COVID-19 pandemic. Efficient and accurate antibody testing will aid in quantifying immunological responses to new vaccines in clinical trials with precision. Rapid and accurate...
