Coronavirus company news summary – ARUP Laboratories announces the availability of a combined test for Covid-19, Influenza, and RSV – GE Healthcare announces first x-ray AI to help assess endotracheal tube placement for Covid-19 patients

By Chloe Kent

ARUP Laboratories, a University of Utah non-profit enterprise, has announced the availability of a combined test for the detection and differentiation of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, influenza and/or respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) among those suffering with respiratory conditions consistent with Covid-19. It will be avaliable to clients in the US.

LifeLabs, a digital health systems provider,  has announced the launch of its Covid-19 antibody test, which helps in identifying prior exposure to the SARS-CoV-2 infection. Approved by Health Canada, the serology test does not diagnose acute Covid-19 infection but helps in identifying a prior infection, even in asymptomatic individuals.

Zymo Research announced that its quick-DNA/RNA Viral MagBead Kit had received the CE IVD mark for the distribution of the kit in the European Union (EU). The kit will be used for the purification of viral DNA/RNA, such as the SARS-CoV-2 virus, as well as other pathogenic sample types. The kit forms part of the several US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) SARS-CoV-2 test workflows developed by companies.

GE Healthcare has developed an artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm to help clinicians weigh Endotracheal Tube (ETT) placements, an important procedure while critically ill Covid-19 patients are placed on ventilation. One of the five AI solutions included in GE Healthcare’s Critical Care Suite 2.02 helps radiologists in automating processes and prioritising cases, thereby cutting down average review time for up to eight hours.
