Singapore-based local medical technology company Biolidics has developed a kit that can diagnose Covid19 in 10 minutes.

The kit is tested using serum, plasma or whole blood samples and is considered to be the fastest Covid19 test in Singapore with an accuracy rate of over 95%.

The kit has received interim approval from the Bureau of Health Sciences, and the company has found a large number of manufacturers. It is expected to be used locally in Singapore next month.
