Pooling Samples Could Help You Get Your COVID-19 Test Results Faster

IEEE members believe they have devised a way to accurately test more samples with fewer reagents by using compressed sensing, a signal-processing technique. Using algorithms, compressed sensing acquires and reconstructs a signal from a series of sampling measurements—which can reduce the amount of data that needs to be sampled. Pooling samples and analyzing the data using compressed sensing could make COVID-19 testing 10 times more efficient.
