Researchers from the University of York are using laser-light technology to develop biosensors which could deliver real-time blood test results for patients with infections, to include COVID-19.
Sanitization of Facilities Potentially Contaminated with SARS-CoV-2 is a webinar that will discuss different strategies available to decontaminate facilities that are potentially contaminated with severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), the causative agent of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). During the current COVID-19 pandemic, unknowing COVID-19 positive persons may potentially contaminate different facilities including lab spaces and office spaces with SARS-CoV-2.
Research out of Boston University shows "Nanosponges" could act as a decoy and prevent the SARS-CoV-2 virus from taking hold of lung cells. This Research was supported by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency Joint Science and Technology office for Chemical and Biological Defense.
