New release: Colloidal gold-based rapid test for diagnosis of COVID-19
May 01, 2020
IMD has successfully developed a highly accurate colloidal gold-based point-of-care test (POCT) for rapid and simultaneous detection of anti SARS-COv2 NP IgG and IgM antibodies with a tiny drop of blood samples. The quality and reproducibility of this test was validated in a multi-center study in COVID-19 patients, with detection rate and sensitivity of >83% and> 95% respectively. This product, in combination of a series of high throughout ELISA products previously developed by IMD, enables the company to provide a comprehensive range of high quality assays for detection of both antibodies and antigens of SARS-COV2
Immunodiagnostics Receives European CE marking approvals for three diagnostic products to detect SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19)
March 28, 2020
The three highly-specific and sensitive immunoassays developed by Immunodiagnostics for serological detection of antibodies against the major nucleocaspid protein (NP) of SARS-CoV-2, including SARS-COV-2 NP Ab ELISA (Cat No:41A225); SARS-COV-2 NP IgG ELISA (Cat No: 41A222); SARS-COV-2 NP IgM ELISA (Cat No: 41A224) have been granted with CE marking certification from European Union (CE marking: NL-CA002-2020-49738; NL-CA002-2020-49739; NL-CA002-2020-49737). These products were fully validated in patients diagnosed with COVID-19 in different centers . The detection rate of anti-NP total Ab and anti-NP IgG is approximately 90% in serum of >74 COVID-19-patients tested. These serological tests can be used to detect individuals with ongoing or previous infection with SARS-CoV-2, and to monitor the disease progression. Besides, the Free Sale Certificate (FSC) will further enable these products to be used for diagnostic applications in Iran, South Korea, Turkey, Malaysia and Thailand (in application). These CE-marked products are manufactured by Uniten Biotech Limited , the industrial partner of Immunodiagnostics.
