Title
(EN) DETECTION OF VIRUSES IN FACEMASKS
(FR) DÉTECTION DE VIRUS DANS DES MASQUES FACIAUX
Abstract
(EN) Facemasks with an integrated virus detection system are described. The virus detection system is embedded in or on a facemask worn by an individual susceptible to a viral infection. The individual wears a facemask for protective purposes during work or leisure. If the individual develops a viral infection and begins discharging viral particles from mouth and/or nose, the virus detection system embedded in the facemask retains the virus particles. The virus particles are detected in an immunoassay. The virus particles in the virus detection system embedded in the facemask are detected by avian antibodies. The virus detection system in the facemask is configured to detect one or more viruses, for example, SARS-CoV-2.
(FR) La présente invention concerne des masques faciaux avec un système de détection de virus intégré. Le système de détection de virus est intégré dans ou sur un masque facial porté par un individu sensible à une infection virale. L’individu porte un masque facial à des fins de protection pendant le travail ou les loisirs. Si l’individu développe une infection virale et commence à évacuer des particules virales par la bouche et/ou le nez, le système de détection de virus incorporé dans le masque facial retient les particules virales. Les particules virales sont détectées dans un dosage immunologique. Les particules virales dans le système de détection de virus incorporé dans le masque facial sont détectées par des anticorps aviaires. Le système de détection de virus dans le masque facial est configuré pour détecter un ou plusieurs virus, par exemple, le SARS-CoV-2.
