Conduit understands that the biggest problem of the pandemic is understanding who has been infected. Those infected with COVID-19 can still be infectious despite showing no symptoms. Not only that, those who have contracted COVID-19 before are still susceptible to being reinfected once again.
Unfortunately, current COVID-19 testing has proven to be inaccessible to many. Testing often requires going to medical centers that can serve as hotspots of infection. In fact, one of the most infected and devastated groups of the pandemic have been health workers themselves. Currently, COVID-19 testing is painful and invasive. Not only that, after the test the wait time to receive results can extend into weeks. Conduit aims to address the inaccessibility problem of COVID-19 testing by developing a diagnostic test titled, "nanoSPLASH." Conduit has answered the call of our times by designing technology that could foster the reopening of society and save lives.
