HighSenseCoV2 is a project aiming to use our DART amplification technology with current immunologic assay technologies, in order to improve testing devices, namely LFT (lateral flow tests). This is expected to increase the sensibility of the detection system, contributing for an efficient and faster detection of people exposed to the virus.
