A Singapore company's 60-second COVID-19 breathalyser test was just approved
Breathonix, a spin-off company from the National University of Singapore (NUS), said it is now working with the health ministry to run a deployment trial of the technology at one of the city-state's border points with Malaysia.
The tests would be sold for between S$5-S$20 ($3.76-$15.03) each, depending on the number purchased, said a company representative.
The breath test achieved more than 90% accuracy in a Singapore-based pilot clinical trial, the company said last year.
