Point-of-Care PCR Assays for COVID-19 Detection

April 20, 2021

We are happy to share our new review article focusing on the recent advances in the development of miniaturized polymerase chain reaction (PCR) systems with an emphasis on COVID-19 detection. The distinct features of digital PCR and electrochemical PCR are detailed within along with the relative challenges. The potential of CRISPR/Cas technology for point-of-care (POC) diagnostics is also highlighted. Finally, commercial reverse transcriptase-PCR (RT-PCR) POC systems approved by various agencies for COVID-19 detection are discussed.
