Rapid lateral-flow antibody test for SARS-CoV-2

Significant efforts are being made to protect public health and prevent local, regional or national spikes in SARS-CoV-2 cases. Antibody testing can determine population seroconversion and aid epidemiological and public health decisions.

In addition to the Viasure real-time polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) kit, used widely in the UK, Pro-Lab Diagnostics is pleased to be launching another tool to help laboratory and medical colleagues continue the fight against SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19 disease.

The OnSite Rapid Test is a single-use lateral-flow immunoassay intended for qualitative detection and differentiation of anti-SARS-CoV-2 IgG and IgM antibodies in 10 minutes, from human serum, plasma or whole blood. Resulting from a partnership between CTK Biotech, Avonchem and Pro-Lab Diagnostics, the kit was launched in early March and has undergone extensive evaluation, the results of which are now available.
