How does minoo work?

Molecular SARS-CoV-2 test for medical officers

minoo is a molecular SARS-CoV-2 test and provides a result in just 18 minutes!

Our molecular NAT test using RPA (Recombinase Polymerase Amplification) makes this possible, delivering very fast and accurate results. The innovative combination of on-site equipment and cloud-based analysis opens up previously unimaginable possibilities and offers a great deal of laboratory capability in a very small space.

SARS-CoV-2 test procedure

Fast and accurate results in 5 simple steps

minoo analyses samples at the molecular level, whereas the SARS-CoV-2 test occurs in two steps: the on-site instrument analyses the processed sample from the throat swab, while the cloud back-end in the digital background evaluates the data and provides a diagnosis in real time. The whole testing process is quickly and conveniently carried out in five simple steps.

Dauer:  ca.10 Minuten

Take a sample

Take a simple throat swab using the sterile disposable swab that is provided.

Duration approx.10 minutes

Prepare the sample

Dip the swab into the buffer container and swirl it in there for 10 seconds. A timer in the app will help you stick to the recommended time.

Pipette the sample

Now pipette a certain amount from the buffer container into the test container with the bio-chemicals and mix the two carefully using the pipette.

Duration approx.18 minutes

Analyse the sample

Place the test container into the opening of the test station. The sample is now being analysed.

Get the result

The app connects to the cloud, where the sample analysis is evaluated in real time and subsequently sent to your smartphone. The minoo app will guide you through the entire process right from the very beginning. You will get the lab-quality test result directly on your smartphone within 18 minutes.

Test procedure illustration—please refer to the instruction manual for the complete test.

User-friendly app with intuitive controls

Molecular SARS-CoV-2 test – step by step

The minoo test is a standardized process. This ensures a high level of accuracy with a minimized error rate.

The minoo app for smartphones (Android) plays a key role in this by guiding the user through the entire test process with the aid of a graphical user interface—clearly, concisely and step by step. This makes the whole SARS-CoV-2 test particularly convenient and ensures quality even in the most stressful of situations.

Requirements of the minoo app

Hardware requirements

Android® 8+ with Bluetooth LE (BLE), NFC and wireless internet connection to download the minoo app. BLE and NFC must be active and the smartphone must be connected to the internet throughout the test.

Test station & test kit

minoo contains all the important components

The minoo test station and the minoo test kits contain the most important components to ensure that medical personnel, such as medical officers, can carry out the molecular SARS-CoV-2 test on-site by collecting a throat swab.
