Specialists of the Federal Medical and Biological Agency (FMBA) of Russia have created a device that accurately determines COVID-19 in a short time. It takes only 27 minutes from taking the material to obtaining the result, RIA Novosti reports.

The diagnostic system was developed by scientists from the Institute of Physical and Chemical Medicine of the FMBA. The agency said that with some improvement, the device will be able to detect the presence of other antigens.

Russian scientists and developers are working to improve the means of combating COVID-19 and the definition of the virus. Earlier, the Gamaleya Center, where the first coronavirus vaccine was created and registered, modified the drug for the delta strain. According to scientists, the spread of this strain has become the cause of high mortality in Russia.
