Coronavirus company news summary – Sentinel Diagnostics introduces two new Covid-19 serological tests – RxBIO distributes Covid-19 saliva collection kit in Canada

By Chloe Kent

Sentinel Diagnostics has launched two new serological tests, COVID-19 Anti-S1 Total Ab and COVID-19 Anti-NC Total Ab. The tests are able to detect antibodies (IgA, IgG and IgM) developed following a Covid-19 infection. The in vitro diagnostic assays can provide initial results in about ten minutes and assist in distinguishing vaccinated people from those infected naturally.

RxBIO is distributing Spectrum Solutions‘ SDNA saliva collection kit for Covid-19 for the first time in Canada. The collection kit is a saliva-based test system that offers a comfortable alternative to the painful nasal swab method. The three-component kit is the first saliva-based system to be approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) under Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) and has also been approved by Health Canada.

The Hamilton County Health Department is offering free, rapid Covid-19 test kits to households within Chattanooga and Hamilton County under the Say Yes! COVID Test At-Home Testing Challenge. The programme will encourage the residents to administer the test thrice a week, irrespective of the symptoms.
