Far Eastern company creates another rapid test for COVID-19

20 Nov '20
The resident of the Skolkovo Foundation, the Rapid Bio company registered in Buryatia, is preparing to launch a rapid test for coronavirus on the market. Its CEO Anzhej Zhimbiev told about it.
Our new development will help replace the PCR test, especially where it is difficult to provide access to the laboratory and the safety of the entire logistic process in terms of the pathogenicity of the virus itself, explained Zhimbiev. The test is now in the final stage of development. We really hope that soon we will be able to bring it to the market and people will not have to take smears - you can do everything right at home.
Anzhey Zhimbiev is the one who came up with an innovative method for early diagnosis of stroke. last spring, he began developing a rapid test for antibodies to COVID-19. For this, a fundraiser was announced on the Boomstarter platform. Of the 2 million 72 thousand rubles needed for this, we managed to collect two and a half million.

Zhimbiev, through social networks, was looking for people who were identified with covid. And a video was posted on the Web in which he spoke in detail about this crowdfunding project. In June it became known that Rapid Bio LLC registered its development with Roszdravnadzor. In October, the tests were delivered to pharmacies - one such test costs almost 800 rubles. Perhaps they will appear on sale abroad.

At a recent press approach on November 17, the Minister of Health of Buryatia, Yevgenia Ludupova, said that the effect of the appearance of rapid tests is partly there, but it is incomplete. Now they are done instead of PCR tests for people who are awaiting surgery.
It takes five hours to wait for the results of a PCR study, Ludupova said. But we urgently need to make a decision about an operation for another pathology. Therefore, now all are actively using express antigen tests.
