Summary of the technology

The early and efficient detection of COVID-19 cases remains an unresolved issue. The detection of cases affected by COVID-19 is based on symptoms or contact tracing. But 60% of COVID-19 cases are asymptomatic or have few and unspecific symptoms. It is therefore difficult to diagnose them as they do not consult the health system; however, they are able to transmit the virus.

Description of the technology

The Covid Gel Test is an artificial intelligence predictive model for COVID-19 using symptoms and a simple olfactory test based on an aromatized hydroalcoholic gel showing a high sensitivity for diagnosing COVID-19. This predictive model could be especially useful for mass screening when testing resources are limited and specially in low-income countries, then the amount of people impacted could be huge.
