The FALCON study aims to find out how accurate new and faster tests are so that patients and staff can be cared for as safely as possible.
The virus that causes COVID-19 is SARS-CoV-2, and the NHS currently relies on a lengthy laboratory processes to detect the presence of this virus. The long wait for the test results (up to 48 hours) makes safe and effective care more difficult to provide. FALCON is open to anyone aged 18 years or older with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 infection to help improve the diagnosis of the disease.
