Tech firm Kromek gets Government backing to develop Covid detection equipment

Sedgefield’s Kromek is developing a new system that can detect Covid-19 in the air after receiving major Government funding.

The business is working on adapting its current technology so that it can automatically detect all airborne viruses, including coronavirus, which could improve the Government’s track and trace efforts. The project has received £1.25m backing from Innovate UK.

Once fully developed, Kromek plans to deploy the new technology in busy areas, such as airports, hospitals, shopping centres, and entertainment venues.

Kromek Group plc designs, develops and produces x-ray and gamma-ray imaging and radiation detection products for the medical, CBRNe security, Homeland Security and civil nuclear radiation detection markets.
