Researchers under the leadership of an Indian scientist have developed inexpensive and powerless centrifuges, which can detect coronavirus infection. In poor countries, it can prove to be quite useful in the fight against the corona epidemic.


According to Stanford University scientist Manu Prakash, this device called 'handifuse' can isolate the virus genome from saliva samples of a corona suspect. It rotates the sample tube at a high speed and does not require electricity.


The study, published in Platform Medicrix, stated that the price of this centrifuge is less than five US dollars. This will help the doctors and scientists to check the 'lamp' done by sampling the saliva of the patient. This will make the investigation quicker and cheaper.
