A Campus Biotech-based company has developed a blood test to detect the coronavirus.

The test, which is carried out by pricking the fingertip, costs 69CHF and is reimbursed by prescription. A little prick on your fingertip, four drops of blood, and you’re done.

CoreMedica Europe SA, a young company founded by two former executives from biological and pharmaceutical companies and integrated since September into SwissMedical Group, has developed a blood test for the detection of Coronavirus, with a sample that can be taken, in particular, by anyone at home.
