Airborne Virus detector (Corona,SARS,Flu)

Airborne diseases like corona, swine flu, common cold, SARS, etc. will have symptoms similar to common cold because of this most of the people ignore it the earlier stage and they will get to know when it becomes severe. So to detect the infections in the earlier stage here we are going to discuss an innovative virus detector project. 

For example, during the start of 2020, you might have across the word Coronavirus either in newspapers, news channels or social media. Coronavirus is said to spread through sneezing and coughing of an infected person, shaking hands with and going near an infected person. They categorized this virus as a pandemic because it spreads very quickly from one location to another (geographically). Treatment for coronavirus was also not properly defined at that time. Due to this around lakhs of people got affected and thousands of people died.

To prevent and detect such kind of diseases in this mini-project, you will learn the concept and working of airborne virus detector.

Project Description - Coronavirus detector

This is a self-diagnosis method where the patient can perform the test by themselves. The infected person who wants to get diagnosed has to blow through the device. The air which is blown by the infected person will have the pathogens. These pathogens are detected using a sensing system of biological aerosol particles (SSBAP). The following are the three steps used to implement this project:

  • collecting a biological sample
  • Identifying aerosol particles using fluorescent dyes
  • Detecting the intensity of fluorescence of pathogens
  • Identifying pathogens based on the intensity

Project working

  1. The sample collected by the patient is placed on the device. A pump is used to aspirate the air from the sampling bag. 
  2. It then flows through a multi-hole filter where the biological aerosol particles are filtered and collected.
  3. Now the collected biological aerosol particles are labelled with the help of fluorescent dyes based on the virus or bacteria. Here the fluorescent dyes are nothing but reagents with antibody liquids.
  4. The fluorescent dyes bound with the aerosol particles will emit fluorescence through irradiation of light. Based on the difference between the intensity of the fluorescence the particular virus can be identified. 


  1. Since it is a self-diagnosis method, there is a less chance of infection to others.
  2. No need to visit hospital or lab (on the go process)
  3. Efficient and fast
  4. Not complicated process


This is a super simple method to detect the airborne virus infections like corona, SARS, common cold, etc. Using this method you can detect the virus in the earlier stage to prevent the infection from reaching the severe stage.
