We talked about infected Corona virus from Wuhan, China: How to Know Someone Infected by Wuhan Virus? - Virus 1.

Wuhan Corona virus also called as COVID-19 infected more than 100,000 people and caused at least 3,000 dead recently.

The problems are from spreading the diseases to testing the infection to finding the cure for diseases.

Availability of testing “machines” are limited, found only in certain facilities such as research centers, big hospitals or federal agencies.

The testing tool called as a PCR machine, cost from US$ 4,900 to US$ 90,000. It is said that price for US$ 15,000 is good enough.

The test is based on concept of Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to detect genetic material, RNA in the virus. The results may be known after 1 to 3 days.

The good news that a company, Co-Diagnostic Inc in Utah, USA invented new technology which is cheaper and easier to be applied to detect the present of Corona virus infection.

The company called its product as Logix Smart COVID-19 test kit,” based on concepts of PCR, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and a mathematical algorithm.

The specimens for testing are taken from:
- upper respiratory tract such as nasopharyngeal fluids and nasal swab
- lower respiratory tract such as sputum, tracheal aspirate and bronchoalveolar lavage
- Serum from who has been suspected

Cost for Logix Smart COVID-19 test kit is US$700 per 100 test. It is mean that 1 test for detecting COVID-19 is US$ 7 only. The result will be known in 90 minutes.

In conclusion that Logix Smart COVID-19 test kit is very much cheaper and quicker compared to existent tests.


Italy and Germany have used this test kit successfully, hope, it will be distributed to all over the world soon.

# Yes, we need PCR machine with Logix Smart COVID-19 test kit:
- Other test kits could cost more than U$$100 and even thousands (based on several news resources) and take longer to know the results

  1. Ülkemizde henüz bu vaka görülmedi ama korkutucu bir virüs... Komşu ülkelerde bu virüs yüzünden okullar tatil edildi biz toplum olarak sarılmayı seven bir milletiz sanırım alışkanlıklarımizdan vazgeçmemiş gerekiyor...

  2. Unfortunately the Covid-19 continues to spread, unstoppable. In my country, Spain, there are already almost 600 people who have tested positive for this coronavirus, and 13 people died. Surely there will be many more infected people who do not know it. I find this new kit hopeful, cheaper and with results in less time than others. Hope a vaccine will be found soon that can protect the population.
    I would like to add your blog to my sidebar, could I do it? thanks

    Wish you a very nice Sunday, big hugs, Caty

  8. Even if discovered in time, in some countries, there is nothing that can help the patients. That's why so many people are dying. It's quite sad actually, as you know, Tanza. It's out of control, hope they make a cure for the virus soon!

  12. Hello
    much cheaper, here there are private laboratories that take about $ 100 for a test like this when it actually costs $ 7, there are those who take advantage of the tragedy to make money !!!

  15. If someone thinks they need to test for this, it may be that they have it. If so, stay indoors and do not infect others. Even if it is a common cold.

    Stay safe Tanza.

  19. Unfortunately people are going crazy. The flu has killed so many more people this year and no one cared about that! The stores here are empty of staple supplies. Hopefully, with the warm weather things will improve.

  22. I hope this virus stops spreading soon. The repercussions that have and will continue to occur are not good. I agree with a prior comment that this is a little out of hand in comparison to the flu which has already killed thousands in the US this year including many children.

  24. The Logix Smart COVID-19 test kit is a PCR test kit. To perform PCR you need a PCR machine and a test kit (which are the primers, buffers and enzymes necessary to perform the PRC polymerase chain reaction). I'm not sure what the price of other test kits are but you're comparing the price of the PCR machine with the test kit here.
