Latest Updates on COVID-19 Testing - Kits, Products, Services, Instrumentation - 28 July 2020


This week: Novatec's COVID-19 ELISA test gets nod from Belgian Health Products Authority, Shenzen Bioeasy's rapid antigen test remains top performer as further WHO/FIND independent validation continues. Flu season is fast approaching, and EKF Diagnostics is ahead of the curve with a dual sampling device for SARS-CoV-2, influenza, and other viruses that allows multiple infections to be tested on one swab.

A new viral RNA extraction technology from Phase Scientific receives CE-marking, a relatively inexpensive SARS-CoV-2 RT-qPCR test that detects five regions of the virus in one reaction is now FDA-EUA, and Source Molecular become the world's first ISO 17025 accredited environmental lab to offer SARS-CoV-2 testing.
