The Ministry of Health and Community Protection announced the adoption of “DPI” technology, which is based on the use of lasers to detect suspected cases of the emerging virus “Corvid-19”.
The device, which was developed in the UAE, examines blood samples and reads the shape of cells in them to determine the presence of infections such as those caused by the “Covid-19” virus.
The Quantys Laboratory, the medical research arm of the “International Holding Company” listed on the Abu Dhabi Stock Exchange, announced in May this year the development of a new tool that would enable a high-speed mass survey to show results within a few seconds.
The DPI laser-based device uses an advanced artificial intelligence (AI) diagnostic system to analyze images, according to a very accurate scale that enables it to examine large groups of individuals at the same time.
This device will contribute to identifying people suffering from infections as a result of viral infections, including the emerging corona virus, and thus restrict the conduct of PCR nasal swabs to them to make sure they have Covid-19 disease.
His Excellency Abdul Rahman bin Muhammad Al Owais, Minister of Health and Community Protection, expressed his pride in this national innovation, praising at the same time national innovations that serve the local and global communities and strengthening the position of the Emirates as a research center in various fields, including the medical and health field and makes it among the countries working in the field Scientific research to become an effective contributor in this field internationally.
This technology, which is easy to use, non-surgical, and low-cost, will be launched in several places in the Emirates, as part of the precautionary measures that require large-scale examinations.
