Earlier this week, the Ministry announced two innovations, namely GeNose, developed by Gadjah Mada University (UGM) and RT-LAMP, developed by the Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI).
 
Designed to detect SARS-CoV-2 via breath, GeNose is cheaper and more accurate. GeNose has been put through the first phase of clinical trials in a hospital in Yogyakarta. Authorities are currently conducting a more extensive clinical trial in various hospitals.
 
Meanwhile, the RT-LAMP testing technology is developed in the form of rapid swab test. It can be done in less than an hour and without the need of BSL-2 laboratory. The RT-LAMP is also much cheaper than the current tools.
