New testing devices developed by a Cambridge team that can diagnose Covid-19 in less than 90 minutes are being used at Addenbrooke's Hospital.
The portable machines, called Samba II, have been developed by a University of Cambridge spin-off company called Diagnostics for the Real World.
10 are currently being used at Addenbrooke's Hospital this week but researchers said their tests, which have been validated by Public Health England, are expected to be launched in hospitals across the country.
They said the Samba machine is "extremely sensitive" when it comes to detecting active infections, adding that 98.7% of people with the disease will be correctly identified as positive cases.
