CoronaEspresso: A Cheap, Rapid and Simple Home Test for Nucleic Acid Amplification

Vittorio Saggiomo Wageningen University and Research


Development of a novel LAMP device which is cheap, reusable, and can be produced in large amounts in a short period of time. The device was designed such not to require chemical exothermic reactions, have limited waste produced and with a minimum cost of the device as a whole. The device was tested for the detection of SARS-CoV2 RNA.
