Samples and data
Institution or company
Imperial College London
The study involves the collection of saliva samples from Cambridge University students and evaluating the samples for the SARS-CoV-2 virus using a diagnostic test (developed by the Stevens Group, Imperial College London). The samples will be counter-evaluated using standard qPCR evaluation (through standard Cambridge testing procedure) to determine which samples are SARS-CoV-2 positive/negative and thus evaluate preliminary sensitivity and specificity date of the diagnostic test.
