French Scientists Devise Fast-Track Test for Ebola


From the article:

A new device similar to a simple pregnancy home-test could allow doctors to diagnose a patient with suspected Ebola in under 15 minutes, its French developers said on Tuesday (Oct 21). Trials at a high-security lab have validated the technique and prototype kits should be available in Ebola-hit countries by the end of October for a clinical trial, France’s Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) said in a statement.

The only thing I wonder is….if there is a window where the virus wouldn’t show and a person could still be able to come down with it. I’m thinking of the HIV virus?

What is the “window period?”
