The SWIFTeR project aims to explore and develop isothermal-based technologies that would utilize alternative biological samples for detecting Sars-cov-2.

The outcome of this project is the development of a prototype platform to be used with different biological samples to detect and amplify Sars-Cov-2 genetic material based on isothermal amplification approaches.
