New rapid test for SARS-CoV-2



We are excited to announce a new rapid test for SARS-CoV-2.

The new test will utilise Randox Biochip Technology, with results available from the Randox Vivalytic within 2-3 hours, and within 5 hours on the Evidence Investigator, a semi-automated analyser that is capable of processing 54 different samples simultaneously. The new test will complement the already existing Respiratory Tract Infections Array, which can currently test for 22 viral and bacterial infections simultaneously. The test therefore determines the exact cause of symptoms and differentiates between mild and serious infections, such as coronavirus.

2019-nCoV results in a range of respiratory symptoms similar to those of other respiratory infections, including the common cold. The Randox Respiratory Tract Infection Array simultaneously tests for 23 viral and bacterial respiratory pathogens allowing clinicians to determine the exact cause of symptoms and differentiate between mild and serious infections, which other technologies cannot.
