Sanofi and Luminostics are developing an over-the-counter smartphone-based test that allows consumers to screen themselves for COVID-19. The companies aim to have the test available by the end of 2020.

The test will be designed to detect the novel coronavirus with high sensitivity and specificity from respiratory samples, with results available within 30 minutes, according to the companies. The diagnostic platform will use an iOS/Android app, which will instruct a user on how to run the test, capture and process data to display test results, and connect users with a telehealth service based on the results.
