While awaiting the anti-Covid vaccine, rapid detection tests on the population are an important tool available to contain the spread of the virus, which since the beginning of the epidemic has already caused the contagion of more than 22 million people and 700 thousand deaths.

Rapid detection of the infected is also made possible by SC 8 Oil-free Rotary Vane Vacuum Pumps, used in portable mini labs designed to quickly detect SARS-CoV-2 RNA presence in biological material in just 30 minutes by using real-time isothermal amplification from nasopharyngeal and oropharyngeal swabs and sputum.

The manufacturer of these portable mini laboratories has chosen the SC 8 Pumps because their high performance and compact size ensure reliability in the rapid virus diagnosis process.
