Covid-19 is a virus which causes a pandemic in 2019. Vaccins have been developed so that the number of infections now seems to be decreasing. However, there are sub-variants of the Omicron that are said to be more contagious, these mutatants could cause another pandemic in the winter as this is the time when many people gather, schools start and social events move indoors.
This product diagnoses 5 pathogens from one sample in a run, diagnostics of SARS-COV-2, Influenza A, Influenza B, RSV A and B are performed. The product is a coloured chormatographic immunoassay for the simultaneous qualitative detection of the 5 pathogens mentioned.
The 5 pathogens have the same symptoms but different diagnosis. This product has an unique specifity for SARS-COV-2 which is an advantage, another advantage is the fact that additional pipetting reagents are not necessary.
