MedUni Wien Biobank provides samples for pioneering evaluation study of SARS-CoV-2-antibody tests

 

 

Publication of a side by side comparison of three fully automated SARS-CoV-2 antibody assays with a focus on specificity.

 

Many serological test systems have newly been generated in order to detect anti-SARS-CoV-2 antibodies and identify prior SARS-CoV-2 infections. However, many of those tests are insuffiently described. With samples collected at MedUni Wien biobank 3 commercially available CE-marked, SARS-CoV-2 antibody assays were compared.

 

The findings are described in the scientific paper published in August 2020 (see also MedUni Wien Biobank website).
