Oxford Nanopore Technologies Ltd's COVID-19 test LamPORE has shown promising results in an early-stage study, research conducted mostly by scholars from the University of Oxford revealed on Friday.

The paper found that LamPORE assay has a similar performance to reverse transcription PCR tests in terms of "diagnostic sensitivity and specificity," and added that "this indicates that LamPORE offers a promising approach to high-throughput testing."

Oxford Nanopore claimed that this method of testing could run up to "768 samples ... on a single flow cell," or approximately 20,000 samples per day on a single device.
