The FDA on Thursday issued an emergency use authorization for a Covid-19 breathalyzer that can detect the China virus in less than three minutes.

According to the FDA, the InspectIR Covid-19 Breathalyzer is the size of a piece of carry-on luggage that “detects chemical compounds in breath samples associated with a SARS-CoV-2 infection.”

“Today’s authorization is yet another example of the rapid innovation occurring with diagnostic tests for COVID-19,” said Jeff Shuren, M.D., J.D., director of the FDA’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health. “The FDA continues to support the development of novel COVID-19 tests with the goal of advancing technologies that can help address the current pandemic and better position the U.S. for the next public health emergency.”

CNN reported:

The US Food and Drug Administration has granted emergency use authorization to the first Covid-19 test that spots chemical compounds associated with the coronavirus in breath, the agency said Thursday.

The FDA said the InspectIR Covid-19 Breathalyzer, which is about the size of a piece of carry-on luggage, can be used in medical offices and mobile testing sites. It can give results in less than three minutes.

The system separates and identifies chemical mixtures to detect five compounds associated with SARS-CoV-2 infection.

A study of the InspectIR Breathalyzer found it accurately identified more than 91% of positive samples and nearly 100% of negative samples. Similar sensitivity was found in another study that focused on the Omicron coronavirus variant. However, a positive result should be confirmed with a PCR test, the FDA said.

  1. Greetings from Colorado! I’m bored to death at work so I decided
    to check out your site on my iphone during
    lunch break. I enjoy the information you provide here and can’t wait to take a look when I
    get home. I’m shocked at how fast your blog loaded on my phone ..
    I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyways, good site!

  2. You actually make it seem so easy along with your presentation however
    I find this matter to be really something which I think I would never
    understand. It kind of feels too complex and extremely vast for me.
    I’m taking a look forward in your subsequent put up, I will attempt to get the dangle of it!

  3. Fascinating blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A design like yours with a few simple adjustements would really
    make my blog jump out. Please let me know where you got your theme.
    Thank you

  4. I really like your blog.. very nice colors & theme.
    Did you design this website yourself or did you hire someone
    to do it for you? Plz respond as I’m looking to create my own blog and would like to know where u got this from.
    thanks a lot
