(Pittsburgh, PA) -- Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh and U-P-M-C are teaming up to develop a new COVID-19 test. The new test will be done by a small chip that can detect COVID-19 in just five minutes. Pitt University's Dr. Alexander Star says the chip was made using fibers that have coronavirus antibodies stitched onto them. If the antibodies come into contact with traces of the virus, the electrical current of the device will change. Dr. Star created the new test with similar technology he used for a marijuana breathalyzer he developed a few years ago.
