Gauss, Cellex develop first COVID-19 home test

Gauss Srl and Cellex Inc. announced on Wednesday that they had developed the first home test for the COVID-19 that can be independently performed at home without carrying it to a laboratory for analysis.

The new testing method developed by the computer vision startup and biotech diagnostics company should significantly decrease the time needed to receive the test results and allow people to self-isolate faster if they test positive for the coronavirus.

Cellex CEO James Li said that the test shows nearly 90% sensitivity and approximately 100% precision in comparison to the currently available polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests.
