Online Insider | Pandemic covid until now is still increasing day by day. All world strive to halt the spreading of viruses, even now each country has its people vaccinated. The number of corona patients is still high, a super sophisticated detection device is needed, it must be very fast and accurate result. Early detection to break the chain of transmission and spread of the Covid 19 virus, a rapid test is very crucial
What Devices Are Needed?
To detect someone who is positive for Covid or not, it is necessary to have a device that can work quickly and accurately. Besides that, it must also be effective and efficient in terms of the number of tools and at affordable prices.
Therefore, UGM as a leading university participates in solving the covid pandemic problem in Indonesia. UGM created a GeNose tool that functions to detect covid with just a breath.
What is GeNose?
As quoted from the official UGM / Gajahmada University website, GeNose is a tool designed to detect and diagnose whether a person is infected with coronavirus or not. This device works by taking a sample of the exhalation. GeNose is based on AI artificial intelligence that is connected to cloud computing data to get real-time diagnosis results.
How Is the Methode?
Dian Kesumapramudya Nurputra, a UGM researcher who was involved in the research, explained that GeNose works by detecting Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) which is formed due to a COVID-19 infection that comes out with the breath through exhalation into a special bag. Furthermore, it is identified through sensors, which then the data will be processed with the help of artificial intelligence as reported from Kumparan.
The data collected is also very helpful for mapping, tracking, and monitoring the actual spread of the pandemic.
A New Hopes to Stop Pandemic Faster
GeNose as a COVID-19 detector is certainly a new hope in the midst of a pandemic. With more accurate, efficient, and faster results, the medical team and the community will be helped and make it easier.
Although GeNose is not a tool that replaces the PCR or swab test, GeNose can help detect Covid-19 quickly and accurate compared to a thermo gun, it is closed to 97%. This tool also has advantages, because it is very easy to grip and can even be operated independently
GeNose has obtained the distribution permit from the relevant department and is ready for mass production. This kind of device will be implemented in place with mass people including Bus Station, Rail Station, Airport, etc.
With this tool, for tracing, testing and treatment are getting easier to stop the spread of the Covid-19, hence we able to advise and get further precautions and treatments as required.
