Coronavirus Test Kit

One of the world’s first rapid point-of-care lateral flow immunoassays for the diagnosis of coronavirus infection. This Coronavirus Testing Kit has been used widely by the Chinese CDC to combat infections and is now available globally. This test detects both early marker and late marker, IgM/IgG antibodies in human finger-prick or venous blood samples.

4 Simple Steps to Test for Coronavirus

It can be used for rapid screening of carriers of the virus that are symptomatic or asymptomatic. Recent studies suggest that a high percentage of patients show no clinical symptoms of the virus, thus screening patients is vitally important. The test is ideally suited for hospitals, clinics and test laboratories. The test can also be effectively deployed in businesses, schools, airports, seaports and train stations, etc., giving it the potential to become a compelling force in the fight against this global threat.

Comparison with Other Coronavirus Testing Kits

The test was validated using 397 clinically positive patients’ samples that were confirmed using PCR. The overall test sensitivity is 88.7% and specificity is 90.6%. You can read the report in the Journal of Medical Virology: https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/jmv.25727

It is widely accepted that IgM provides the first line of defense during viral infections, followed by the generation of adaptive high affinity IgC responses for long term immunity and immunological memory. Therefore testing of COVID-19 IgM and IgG antibodies is an effective method for the rapid diagnosis of COVID-19 infection. Furthermore, detection of COVID-19 IgM antibodies tends to indicate a recent exposure to COVID-19, whereas detection of COVID-19 IgC antibodies indicates a later stage of infection. Thus, this combined antibody test could also provide information on the stage of infection.
