With the continuing threat of Ebola, researchers in San Diego are working with the government and the CDC to devise a test that can show if someone is infected with the Ebola virus within 10 minutes.

Genalyte CEO Cary Dunn tells CBS News 8 the rapid test can show Ebola and other infections, but further testing and the FDA approval is needed before it’s widely used.

Currently, the only approved test for Ebola takes two hours for results. Dunn says the hope is the procedure can detect Ebola from just a finger prick of blood.
