Ortho Clinical Diagnostics gets CE mark for Covid-19 IgG antibody test

May 6, 2021

The WHO standardisation aids in regulating Covid-19 virus serological methods and permits unified data comparison across labs.

The new assay is indicated for the qualitative and quantitative identification of IgG antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 in human serum and plasma.

The test will facilitate analysis of a person’s immune response level on being infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus or on receiving a vaccination. It will serve as a standardised tool for public health workers to assess changes in the antibody levels of Covid-19 patients and track the disease spread.
