The ML System company created a device that detects coronavirus from breath in less than 10 seconds. The invention was presented on Thursday during a press conference of President Andrzej Duda at the company’s headquarters in Zaczerniu near Rzeszów (Podkarpackie).

The President of ML System Dawid Cycoń said that the device was created in a few dozen days. – We are after preliminary tests, we have obtained permission from the medical bioethics commission to proceed to the phase of testing on ready swabs, we expect very fast results in terms of sensitivity and detectability of the device – explained the president. Cycoń hopes that his company’s product will be massively used in workplaces, airports, and border crossings. He emphasized that the device will not require a specialist operation. “Its task is to diagnose the virus everywhere. I believe that after the implementation of mass production we will defeat the virus very quickly not only in our region but also worldwide,” said the President of ML System.

President Andrzej Duda, who – as he reported – underwent a test in the company’s laboratory on the device and received a negative result – reported that “it works in a way similar to a police breathalyzer. – One simply takes this device, blows into this hole, and literally after a few seconds the result appears on the screen, whether the test is positive or negative, that is, whether someone exhales coronavirus or not,” described the president.

ML System is mainly involved in the creation of materials that replace traditional building materials with those that are photovoltaically active, including replacing external blinds on buildings with those that generate electricity, in addition to which they can also heat the building. It has its own development center.
