US researchers have developed a low-cost rapid test that can detect the Ebola virus in the blood within 15 minutes. The previous standard test PCR takes much longer because a whole blood sample has to be taken. The ReEBOV test, however, only requires a single drop of blood. Some false positive results were diagnosed so researchers are working to improve the reliability.
