Rapid identification and isolation of COVID-19 patients by prescreening VTM samples? The OnSite COVID-19 Ag Rapid Test by CTK might be the answer!
The performance of the OnSite® COVID-19 Ag Rapid Test by CTK was evaluated using sample material from nasopharyngeal swabs stored in viral transport media. The swabs were previously used to screen for SARS-CoV-2 using qPCR. The OnSite® COVID-19 Ag Rapid Test sensitivity was between 86-90% depending on the viral load*. The study used leftover sample material selected from samples sent.... Read Full Article >
