BATM subsidiary Adaltis has launched the ELISA Serological Test Kit for Covid-19, and has commenced the shipping of initial orders throughout Europe.

The CE-certified test is designed to find the IgA, IgM, and IgG antibodies for the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes Covid-19. It can be conducted both on standard ELISA machines that are already in widespread use in laboratories and hospitals, and on Adaltis’s Personal LAB and NEXgen machines, which are pre-calibrated for these tests.

BATM CEO Dr Zvi Marom said: “The serologic tests are now being provided to our customers at a time when they are most needed – to provide statistical information to decision makers. This, together with our other innovative initiatives, will help health authorities in preparing for a potential second wave of Covid-19 in the winter months.”
