Scientists from the QuantLase Imaging Lab in the UAE have developed a fast laser coronavirus recognition technology, Arab News reported.

“With the first 1,000 tests, we refined our experiment and then applied it to the rest of the trials,” said Dr Pramod Kumar, who leads the team of researchers at QuantLase, in a report from state news agency WAM.

“The process passed through several stages, and most recently was being trialed on a large scale, in line with current testing procedures.”

The laboratory expects to put new test systems on the market within a few months.
