PATHPOD is a lab-on-a-chip system able to detect COVID-19 coronavirus in 15 minutes without the need for a laboratory.

It is suitable to provide fast answers in schools, workplaces, mobile clinics or to screen travelers at transportation hubs.

How it works

After taking a swab an operator pours up to ten samples into a disposable cartridge and the device performs the analysis automatically.

The system uses the LAMP technology to amply the viral genome. Its accuracy is comparable to that of RT-PCR, the gold standard for COVID-19 testing.
