CQM, in cooperation with regional institutions, is investigating the possibility of using dogs as detectors of COVID-19 even when patients are asymptomatic.

The Madeira Chemistry Research Centre has had the ambition to study biodetection dogs for some years and was recently approached by the Mondioring Madeira Working Group due to the redirecting of their efforts since March with the worsening of the global pandemic situation.

This project is a partnership between CQM, Mondioring Madeira group and Regional health institutions and its main goal is to find a low cost, fast and reliable way to detect patients with covid-19 even when they are not symptomatic.
