時至今日,2019 新型冠狀病毒已經在世界範圍內造成成千上萬的人員感染,並對各國 經濟造成重創。目前對病毒主要的檢測方式為用 PCR 檢測病毒的特定核酸結構。受檢測方 式的限制,需要檢測人員使用 PCR 檢測儀器在特定實驗室中才能完成操作,所以目前的檢 測時間仍然需要幾個小時才能取得結果,遠遠不能滿足目前的檢測需求。根據新華新聞網 的報道,中國南開大學已經研發出利用檢測抗體在 15 分鐘內就可快速檢測出新型冠狀病 毒,該產品有望在近期可以投入使用。

Until now, the 2019-nCoV has cause thousands of deaths and severe economic losses in the world. Now PCR detect viral nucleic acids directly,but this method require complex procedures, expensive instruments and high skilled personnel. Consequently, developing a commercially available rapid test strip is necessary and urgent. According to the Xinhua News ,China's Nankai University has announced a breakthrough in developing a novel coronavirus rapid test kit that can identify infection among suspected patients with in 15 min. This test kit called Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) IgM/IgG antibody detection kit. The Nankai test kit is expected to be used in epidemic prevention and control soon, the university said.
