Reagent solution may bust COVID-19 testing bottleneck

Published on:

Researchers have developed a way to create more crucial reagents for use in COVID-19 tests that could provide enhancements to the use and production of future tests.

The high demand for the reagents used in COVID-19 tests has created some supply issues in the UK (and even more so for developing countries) so the researchers decided to try to make more of the enzymes needed to produce reagents themselves that they could then use in commercially available testing kits.

They not only succeeded in producing more of those crucial and much sought-after enzymes that will make more reagents for testing
