COVID-19 Diagnostics

As the world is struggling to contain the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, healthcare infrastructure and testing capacity have emerged as major issues. There is an urgent need for access to accurate and standardized diagnostics for SARS-CoV-2 (the causative agent of COVID-19). Laboratory testing for COVID-19 and the associated SARS-CoV-2 virus includes methods that detect the presence of the virus (PCR technology) and those that detect antibodies produced in response to infection. Detection of antibodies (serology) can be used both for clinical purposes and population surveillance. AdipoGen Life Sciences has an ongoing pipeline for detection of soluble ACE2, antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 and a HTS detection kit for the determination of SARS-CoV-2 blocking reagents.
