First time! COVID-19 Portable Sweat Test Device that Can Yield Instant Results to Support Proactive Screening in the Community

The faculty members and students of the Department of Chemistry, Faculty of Science, Chulalongkorn University have successfully developed, for the first time, a quick and easy-to-use portable sweat test device for COVID-19 to detect specific scents in sweat caused by bacteria.  Sample collection only takes 15 minutes per person, and the results can be obtained in 30 seconds.  The sweat test is now being used in community screening.

The sense of kinship and warmth found in the Chula community is priceless and a treasure worth keeping.
