AI-driven at-home tests could become commonplace for various diseases, building on improvements made for pregnancy and COVID-19.

UFL scientists simplify combined hepatitis C and COVID-19 test with AI tools to a few minutes in one tube. It could be in doctors' offices soon and eventually as easy as a pregnancy test.

UF's Piyush Jain is leading the development of a reliable, simplified, and cost-effective home-based test that provides results in 10-20 mins, without requiring expensive equipment.

Team uses a one-pot reaction system, RT-LAMP tech, to amplify virus genome and produce visible signals in a single test tube. Tests can be read through a color change or a small device detection.
