Description

The world is currently facing a pandemic of a new emerging virus from the coronavirus family named COVID-19. Detection of infected patients is crucial to break the epidemic situation. As a consequence it is essential to diagnose fast and in large number populations to sort rapidly those who are infected. Diagnosis of COVID-19 is carried out by a molecular biology approach consisting in the detection of the COVID-19 RNA genome by a quantitative RT-PCR approach. This strategy is efficient but is time consuming and needs a trained medical staff in a dedicated laboratory. Here we propose a new strategy based on physics technologies :acoustic and optical. AcOstoVIe project aims to prototype a label-free COVID-19 diagnosis device, based by on 2 biosensors on a same quartz substrate. A Quartz Crystal Microbalance (QCM) and an optical reflexion – existing technologies already tested for ebola virus diagnosis – will be integrated in a sytem to detect COVID-19 (i) RNA genome (ii) viral particles and (iii) serology of infected patients. Compared to existing technologies, AcOstoVIe project will provide the valuable advantages : (i) point-of-care diagnosis, (ii) faster (< 30 min), (iii) friendly user (no trained medical staff), (iv) nomad without restriction of dedicated laboratory localization, (v) double check detection, (vi) partly reusable. From the Proof of Concept delivered after T0+12, the system will be next challenged with infectious and non-infectious sample fluids issued from collaborations with medical infrastructures and virology laboratories. The final compact system will be next co-design with practitioners.
