De Montfort University to pilot new Lateral Flow COVID test trial

By Samuel Gill

De Montfort University is set to trial new Lateral Flow antigen tests in the fight against COVID-19.

The university will begin the pilot in the coming weeks with a small group of students who will be given the opportunity to volunteer and take part.

These tests give results in a matter of minutes as opposed to the current 24-48 hour wait time and are utilised to identify those who are infectious but are asymptomatic.

As a result, DMU will potentially help to shape future use of the test in question on a widespread scale as the first institution to take part.
