Researchers say they have developed a test that can diagnose Ebola within 30 minutes, the BBC reports.
The test, which uses blotting paper, was developed by a team led by Jim Collins, who is an expert in synthetic biology and is affiliated with Harvard University.
The method, reported in the journal Cell, could yield confirmation of an infection within 30 minutes. Collins group developed the prototype test in 12 hours, using $20 worth of material, the BBC said.
