• Magnetic Microdevices for MRI Measurement of SARS-CoV-2 Concentration

    29 days ago - By EMBS

    Goal: To develop a micron-scale device that can operate as an MRI-based reporter for the presence of SARS-CoV-2 virus. Methods: Iron rod microdevices were constructed via template-guided synthesis and suspended in phosphate buffered saline. Heat-inactivated SARS-CoV-2 viruses were added to the samples and imaged with low-field MRI. Results: MRI of microdevices and viruses showed...

  • SARS-CoV-2 Detection from Voice

    29 days ago - By EMBS

    Abstract: Automated voice-based detection of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 could facilitate the screening for COVID19. A dataset of cellular phone recordings from 88 subjects was recently collected. The dataset included vocal utterances, speech and coughs that were self-recorded by the subjects in either hospitals or isolation sites. All subjects underwent nasopharyngeal swabbing...
