10 thousand units of GeNose C19 detecting devices have been prepared for Java and Bali by Gadjah Mada University in Yogyakarta.

With the use of the inflatable test device made by Gadjah Mada University (UGM), it is hoped that it can help the government in reducing the rate of infection and the spread of the virus in the community.

Dr. Mochammad Isnaini, GeNose project leader from PT Sigma Andalan Nusa from Yogyakarta claims that the GeNose C19 detection tool has an accuracy rate of virus detection reaching 93 percent.

Also, GeNose can detect the virus in the body two days after the infection in less than two minutes. Furthermore, this tool has an affordable price for people in Indonesia with a one-time detection fee of around Rp. 20-40 thousand.

Isnaini also emphasized that this tool can complement the existing Covid-19 test checks. “At least this tool will be used as an initial screening, to confirm it will still be done through a PCR swab test,” he said.

Currently, Isnaini said, this GeNose tool has received positive responses from several ministry agencies. Among them from the Ministry of Transportation, which has prepared this tool to be placed in several train stations.

“The plan is that on April 1, it can also be used at all airports in Indonesia,” he said.
