The Emirate of Abu Dhabi has adopted a new technology to detect those infected with the "Covid-19" virus, which takes about 3 minutes to get its result, and the cost of the examination is only 50 dirhams, through a blood test technique, which is called "serological tests", or antibody testing. Examination tent in the Ghantoot area to conduct an examination for those coming from Dubai before being allowed to enter the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.
In detail, the new screening tent is located at the last exit on Sheikh Zayed Road, before the Ghantoot area point, and it is intended for rapid examination only, with a view to detecting Corona infections and fulfilling the requirement to enter the emirate for those who do not have a negative Cornna virus test within 48 hours of receiving the test result.
One of the customer service employees in "Aounak" service, without a phone call from the newspaper to inquire about the service, explained that the inspection result is issued in minutes, and the person receives a certificate of the inspection result and the result can be obtained through the application of the fort, indicating that the inspection tent operates over the course of 24 hours a day, and the examination procedure does not require prior reservation in order to facilitate the arrivals to the Emirate.
While many citizens filmed videos of them from inside the examination tent, praising the speed and simplicity of the procedures and thanked the leadership of the state and health sector officials for this achievement, which they described as global and the first of its kind in the region.
The Quaint Liz laboratory, today, the medical research arm of the International Holding Company (IHC) listed on the Abu Dhabi Stock Exchange, announced last May the development of a new tool that allows to conduct high-speed group checks within seconds, allowing to expand the circle of examinations Unprecedented.
The laboratory explained that the three phases of the examination include highlighting the blood sample and reading the shape of the cells to determine the presence of the virus or not, and then the result appears, and all stages do not need more than a few seconds, indicating that the presence of the virus in the blood cells is investigated. By shedding lasers on the blood cells, they mutate into coordinated light circuits. In the event that they happen on the Corona virus, they disperse in a certain way, they give an indication of the infection, revealing the infection very quickly, and in a way that enables the examination of large groups of individuals at the same time, and documenting the results of the examination By taking pictures of the cells ’shape via a camera linked to the examination system.
The laboratory pointed out that the examination device depends on the distinction of the laser beams, important characteristics in terms of the intense density of its optical beams, as well as the shape and intensity of parallelism and interconnection between those beams, which makes it an important and accurate tool to detect the presence of the affected cells, pointing out that the laser scanning technology abbreviates A lot of time and effort, given the possibility of harnessing it in detecting the virus, whether by performing laser scanning for a large number of individuals and in one batch, without the need for expensive devices and technologies and sophistication, or using them in analyzing blood samples in medical laboratories, and revealing the result within a few Seconds. The team stressed that the technology can be used not only to detect corona virus, but also for any other viral infection in the blood.
