Enzo Biochem has introduced Covid-19 test kits under the US FDA’s emergency use authorisation (EUA) authority.

The tests were introduced as part of the company’s comprehensive Covid-19 programme.

The Enzo Biochem Covid-19 test kits include a collection system, sample preparation, sample processing and detection products, as well as molecular analytic capabilities.

Additionally, the company said that the test uses in-house diagnostics technology to improve scale, throughput and sensitivity along with more relevant positive control materials.

Enzo CEO Dr Elazar Rabbani said: “Enzo is uniquely positioned to address the Covid-19 pandemic from multiple angles. We have an open molecular diagnostic system with complete capabilities from sample collection to processing, detection and analytics.
