A breathalyzer has been developed at the Leiden company Breathomix that can determine that someone does not have corona. The breath test has been running in a test street in Amsterdam in recent weeks and the results are very promising. More than 1,800 people took the test prior to the cotton swab test. About 1,350 of them had been able to go home immediately after the breathalyzer.
The device cannot determine whether someone does have corona, the cotton swab test is needed for this. Nevertheless, the large-scale application of the breath meter would provide enormous relief for the test lines.
Ordered hundreds of devices
Those who are not infected will hear about this immediately and can immediately go back to school or work. The Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport has ordered hundreds of the devices from Breathomix. These will soon be used in the test streets of the GGD.
All together, the test takes about 45 seconds: breathe into the device for about half a minute, and wait a few seconds for the result. The blower can then be reused after disinfection and replacement of the mouthpiece and filter.
The Breathomix device was actually developed to detect conditions such as asthma, COPD and cancer. But now it has been found that it also works for covid-19.
The Leiden company is not the only one that develops breath testing equipment. A company in Finland, among others, is already producing about a hundred thousand copies of a comparable breath test.
