Delhi: Four Israeli Technologies Being Tested To Detect COVID-19

how to cure coronavirus if tested positive

In a bid to use innovation against COVID-19, four Israeli technologies are being tested at Delhi to detect coronavirus disease in less than 30 seconds. The tests are being conducted at Dr Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital, Delhi. The Israeli team led by a “high-ranking” research and development defence official, arrived on Monday, to conduct the trials of these technologies. Also, along with them, the team brought 83 hi-tech respirators for patients with severe conditions.

The testing programme has been code-named “Operation Breathing Space”. It is being coordinated by foreign affairs ministry of both the countries. The operation makes use of four innovative and unique technologies to detect the virus.

Four Israeli Technologies

  • Terahertz Spectroscopy: This technique attempts to detect the virus by depositing the sample is deposited on a chip. It is then examined to detect the SARS-CoV-2 virus responsible for the disease.
  • Isothermal Test: This test makes use of the saliva sample. In this method, the genetic material of the virus is amplified rapidly.
  • The Poly Amino Acid Test: The third technique tries to detect the poly amino acids that are specific to the virus. It then helps in early detection of the disease.
  • Speech Test: in this approach, speech samples are studied from asymptomatic and pre-symptomatic patients. These are then checked by artificial intelligence to detect the virus.

All these techniques have given results in less than a minute in the laboratory. Therefore, now they are being tested on 10,000 people in Delhi. The testing will be done twice. This means an RT-PCR test followed by the four Israeli technologies. This will help to verify the results and check the accuracy of the new methods. If the results come in less than a minute then it will be a breakthrough in the field of science and medicine.


“By combining advanced Israeli and Indian technology and India’s manufacturing prowess, we can find a way to resume our lives and exist alongside the virus till a vaccine is developed”, said Israeli Ambassador Ron Malka.

The tests are being conducted in collaboration between the Israeli Defence Research and Development, the Defence Research and Development Organisation of India (DRDO) and Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR).
