COVID-19 TESTING

COVID-19 TESTING

COVID-19 Testing Solutions

A comprehensive product portfolio is essential to support the tremendous efforts of health authorities working on SARS-CoV-2 detection and COVID-19 control globally. Eurofins Technologies teams have worked diligently in close collaboration with leading research hospitals and many of Eurofins human clinical testing laboratories around the world to develop a broad range of testing methods to support healthcare providers.

 

Real-Time PCR Assays


Direct pathogen detection via PCR is the method of choice to detect acute COVID-19 infections. PCR allows for detection a few days after infection as well as in subclinical / asymptomatic infections. The rapid emergence of new virus variants represents a continuous challenge and underlines the need to identify, trace and track mutations.

Multiplex RT-PCR Respiratory Panel

SARS-CoV-2, Influenza A & B, and RSV A & RSV B NEW! 

Respiratory diseases caused by SARS-CoV-2, RSV, and Influenza virus have similar first clinical symptoms, and accurate identification is crucial for better patient care.
The Mplex SARS-CoV-2+, Flu A, Flu B (C1) RT-PCR assay allows to differentiate in a single reaction between Influenza A and B, and simultaneously detects two independent gene targets in SARS-CoV-2 (N-gene + RdRP-gene). In addition, the RSV A, RSV B RT-PCR assay is capable of differentiating between respiratory syncytial virus A and B.

ELISA Assays


We offer multiple immunoassays for antibody detection to SARS-CoV-2 with very good sensitivity and specificity. Antibodies testing provide information about past exposure to SARS-CoV-2. Coronavirus antibody tests could help identify donors of plasma from recovered patients that can be transfused into COVID-19 patients as a potential treatment, and can be used for serosurveys to evaluate the percentage of the population exposed to the virus.

A new CE marked serological assay is launched for the identification and quantification of antibodies to SARS-CoV-2. This ELISA kit can support vaccination campaigns by confirming the success of a vaccination and monitoring the antibody levels over time.
