French company ID.Vet has launched an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) serological test to detect the presence of Covid-19 antibodies.

The company said the test has a specificity of 99.9%, significantly lowering the rate of false positive results. More than a million of the tests have already been produced. The test does not require any specific equipment and the assay can be performed on any open automated immunoassay platform or manually.

The product is CE marked and available for immediate shipping.

ID.Vet CEO Philippe Pourquier said: “We mobilised all our scientific know-how and resources to rapidly develop this test. Thanks to our automated production line and modern infrastructure, we are able to produce millions of tests to meet worldwide demand.”
