10 May Madison-based GoDx developing rapid test for COVID-19
A Madison-based diagnostics company wants to make testing for the COVID-19 coronavirus easier and quicker for patients and health care providers.
GoDx has been developing paper-based tests for pathogens that cause gastrointestinal diseases, such as salmonella and norovirus. While those tests are currently undergoing clinical trials, GoDX is now working on a similar test for the new coronavirus that causes the respiratory disease COVID-19.
The test GoDx is developing, CEO Chang Hee Kim said, wouldn’t require a lab, instead offering results at the point of care in about 30 minutes.
