Carbon nanotube-based sensor can detect SARS-CoV-2 proteins

Posted On: 2022-01-07

Using specialized carbon nanotubes, MIT engineers have designed a novel sensor that can detect SARS-CoV-2 without any antibodies, giving a result within minutes. Their new sensor is based on technology that can quickly generate rapid and accurate diagnostics, not just for COVID-19 but for future pandemics, the researchers say.
