Coronavirus company news summary – MyBio launches Covid-19 antigen self-test in Ireland – Reliance to launch new Covid-19 drug and RT-PCR test kits

By Chloe Kent

MyBio, an Irish life sciences company, has launched a new Covid-19 antigen self-test in Ireland, which is available for purchase in Applegreen and Circle K stores across the country. The company has partnered with MP Biomedicals, a German company, to deliver an affordable and accurate product for testing. The developers say the test has undergone a rigorous validation process and demonstrates an accuracy of 97.83%.

Reliance Industries is working to combat ventilator shortages across India, using continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machines with a 3D-printed charlotte valve and special snorkelling mask. It has also sought regulatory permission to repurpose niclosamide, a generic drug used to treat tapeworm infestations, for potential covid-19 treatment.
