Rapid transmission of the coronavirus disease via droplets and particles has led to a global pandemic. Expeditious detection of SARS-Cov-2 RNA in the environment is attainable by using Bio-FET sensors. This work proposes a Bio-FET sensor interface module with IoT implementation to amplify signals from a Bio-FET for SARS-Cov-2 detection and monitoring. The sensor interface module was programmed to read the signals using a micro-controller and process information to determine the presence of SARS-Cov-2. The proposed Bio-FET sensor interface module was also set to transmit data to the Cloud via W-Fi to be stored and displayed on a dashboard. The prototype Bio-FET sensor interface module was simulated in PSpice for signal amplification, and hardware implementation has been done by using low-cost components for data transmission to the Cloud. The hardware consists of an AD620 instrumentation amplifier module, voltage sensor module, Neo-6m GPS sensor module, an OLED display, and an ESP8266-32 bit micro-controller. The results of both the simulation and the hardware implementation are similar. The emulated negative and positive Bio-FET signal outputs were successfully amplified from 15.9mV and 45.8mV to 1.59V and 4.58V, respectively, using an AD620 instrumentation amplifier. The gathered location, time, date, output voltage, and SARS-Cov-2 presence results were successfully stored and displayed on the Cloud dashboard.
