The British Medical Journal publishes research on COVID test kits from companies that former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra invested in accuracy compared to laboratory results, but it takes about 90 minutes to process much less than a laboratory test.
A team of researchers from Imperial College London. Publication of the research paper Evaluation of a novel, laboratory-free point-of-care test for SARS-CoV-2 (CovidNudge): a diagnostic accuracy study in the Lancet Medical Journal on September 17th. To test the accuracy of the COVID-19 rapid assay CovidNudge Produced by DNA Nudj, one of the two private companies that the UK government is buying a test kit from, it is used to test for COVID-1
Tests carried out by the Lancet Microbe research network show that the COVIDNAD test kit is a test for respiratory infections (RT-PCR) and can easily be done by yourself. The method is to use a cotton swab that comes with a kit for collecting tissue samples from the nasal cavity and throat. Then the cotton swab is placed in a cassette, a test kit, and taken to a processing machine. It takes about 90 minutes to print the results.
Reuters and Yahoo News reported, citing an interview with the head of the research team, Prof. Graham Cook, that the results of the rapid test kit “Covidnj” were as accurate as laboratory tests. The accuracy rate of the COVID-19 test results was 94.4%, while the test results for those who were not infected were 100% accurate.
Foreign media added that the COVID-19 rapid test had a problem with the discrepancy. And not as accurate as sending a lab to an in-house lab exam, but can take more than 24 hours if a quick check is available. And the general public can test it for themselves, it will enable screening and prevent the spread of COVID-19. Made Easier The UK government has set itself the goal of conducting carpet inspections, including elementary and secondary schools across the country.
The DNA company Nudj is a British start-up for DNA testing technology. Displaying health problems related to food consumption such as obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, cholesterol, allergic foods and warning users to be careful with food. The DNA test technology can also be used to detect COVID.
Co-founders of “DNA Nudges” are “Christowmaso” and “Maria Kavay” and this company is very popular in Thailand in early 2020 because of the former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra It turned out that it was one of the joint investors. He also traveled to Las Vegas, USA with the former Prime Minister. Yingluck Shinawatra Participation in the kick-off event “DNA Nudj” at the technology and electronic products fair of CES 2020 (Consumer Electronics Show 2020) in January last year.
