A company called FluroTech is partnering with Albany Medical College to develop a coronavirus diagnostic test.

The partnership is called FluroTest.


The company says it's still in the early stages of research and development.

The collaboration will try and create technology to test for a range of viruses, including coronavirus, as well as determining viral load.

FluroTest may also be able to detect antibodies in blood samples.

Once developed, test results will be available in less than 15 minutes.
