University Collage London ‘UCL’ officially launch the Dna Nudge “on-the-spot” swab and DNA tests which will help distinguish between Covid-19 and other seasonal illnesses.
J&J Air Systems have been working with UCL since February 2020 and are delighted to have contributed, in the successful development of the Covid19 test equipment.
The company working with the Dna Nudge team have supplied specialist pneumatic medical valves critical in the operation and data analysis of the Covid19 Rapid test equipment.
Around 5,000 machines, supplied by DNA Nudge, will provide 5.8 million tests in the coming months.
Additionally, thousands of DNA test machines, which have already been used in eight London hospitals and can analyse nose swabs, will be available across NHS hospitals from September.
Sir John Bell, Regius Professor of Medicine at Oxford University, who has been advising the government on tests, said they produced the same “sensitivity” as the current lab-based tests.
