Ringbio is happy to announce that we have successfully developed a rapid test kit for the detection of IgG/IgM of COVID-2019. This new kit is a 10min rapid test kit, which can be used in the aiding diagnosis of COVID-2019. It can be a great tool for people in panic or in the waiting list of RT-PCR testing.
About COVID-19 and novel coronavirus
On February 11, 2020, the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses, charged with naming new viruses, named the novel coronavirus, first identified in Wuhan, China, severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2, shortened to SARS-CoV-2. The diease caused by SARS-CoV-2 is then named as novel coronavirus disease 2019, shorten as COVID-19.
As the name indicates, the virus is related to the SARS-associated coronavirus (SARS-CoV) that caused an outbreak of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) in 2002-2003, however it is not the same virus.
COVID-19 is now spreading in China, Italy, Iran, Korea, Japan, United States and more than 20 countries worldwide. It is a severe infection with no specific cure and vaccines. Currently RT-PCR / CT scanning are the main techniques used to identify its infection. Lateral flow immunoassay is develoepd as an aiding tool for RT-PCR testing to eliminate the false-negative individuals.
