TOMSK, Dec 28 – RIA Tomsk. A new device developed by Tomsk scientists for the diagnosis of oncological diseases can detect COVID-19 with high accuracy and in a short time, the press service of the regional administration said on Monday.

Earlier it was reported that Tomsk scientists developed a sample of a gas analyzer (sensor gas analysis system consisting of a set of semiconductor sensors and implementing and implementing neural network data processing algorithms), which will identify malignant tumors of the larynx and lungs at an early stage based on samples of exhaled air and promptly select persons in need of detailed examination.

"The gas analyzer, developed by scientists of the Cancer Research Institute of the Tomsk National Research Medical Center and employees of the Laboratory of Chemical Technologies of Tomsk State University (TSU), has shown excellent results in the determination of coronavirus pneumonia", – is said in the statement.

It is specified that the multisensor diagnostic complex analyzes the composition of the exhaled air. During additional studies, it turned out that the device, analyzing samples of the patient's exhaled air, with high accuracy allows detecting pneumonia (98%) and coronavirus infection (93%).

"It takes an average of five minutes to make a diagnosis. The accumulation of initial data and their systematization in combination with neural network technologies can lead to the creation of breakthrough solutions for the non-invasive diagnosis of a number of diseases", – the developer of the technical part of the project, Doctor of Chemistry, Head of the TSU Laboratory Victor Sachkov is quoted.

Tomsk scientists are ready to start cooperating with companies that are interested in the development and help to establish industrial production of gas analyzers, notes the press service.
