Researchers from the University of Bedfordshire have helped develop a new inactivating technology for faster and safer testing of Covid-19 samples, in partnership with Life Science Group Ltd (LSG).
A Senior Lecturer at the University of Bedfordshire has worked alongside institutions and researchers from a number of countries to publish a paper on DNA sequences in different species of plants.
A successful application by a local company, Life Science Group Ltd (LSG), together with the University of Bedfordshire has resulted in £50,000 of funding from Innovate UK to complete a research project to improve Covid-19 testing.
"Universities can make a significant contribution through the knowledge and experience of their staff and their physical resources."
University of Bedfordshire court member Geoff Lambert explains how medical detection dogs can help join the fight against Covid-19.
