Duke-NUS to co-develop, produce one-of-its kind test kit with partners

Researchers from the Duke-NUS Medical School have invented a test kit that takes just an hour, instead of the usual several days, to detect if someone has antibodies which can neutralise the coronavirus. The new test, known as cPass, can be used to see if potential vaccines work, to check what proportion of the population has already been infected and for contact tracing. cPass, the first-of-its kind test is available to hospitals in Singapore.
