Inspiration

Globally the world is in a panic situation on novel coronavirus, epidemically the infection originated from China and spread all over all the world. The infection of the novel COVID-19 causes 19 deaths per 1,000 infected persons. Viral detection assay was determined by the Enzyme-linked immune sorbent assay (ELISA), Quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR), Flow cytometry, Tunable resistive pulse sensing (TRPS), Protein assays and Immunofluorescence Assay (IFA). The research on the COVID-19 founds that the protein present in the virus was arranged rapidly as Surface protein, Membrane protein and Envelope protein. The epidemic spread of COVID-19 might increase through currency notes, which increase the death rate all over the world. It is necessary to develop a method to detect COVID-19 virus by a simple, cost-effective and rapid method.

What it does

The epidemic situation leads to the loss of population in the world and also causes economic damage all over the world. The proposed method can able to detect virus rapidly on-site detection. The estimated cost of the probe was calculated to be 150 to 200 rupees. The time taken to get the result was found to 5 to 10 min.

How I built it

Nano based system in which modified Au NPs (gold NPs) was used with ACE-2 for the Immunofluorescence Assay for the detection of COVID and nanocarrier which is made of biopolymer (chitosan) with modified iron oxide nanoparticles was used as a vaccination process to stimulate the adaptive and innate immunity.

Challenges I ran into

Need to develop an antigen which is reactive to COVID-19 (inactivated form) and the formation of the complex of COVID and nanomaterial.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

The prescribed solution can able to track many cases when we compare to available studies (PCR detection) when compared to the available technique the proposed method is cost-effective, selective and efficient. This will make people live to be routine all over the world.

What's next for Remote sensing rapid kit for COVID detection

Need to commercialize the kit all over the country and need to stop the upcoming waves of COVID-19
