Unlocking the world through monitoring

by Niels Kruize, CCO, MolGen “Automation and industrialization of COVID-19 PCR-testing will facilitate an immense scale-up of the global PCR-testing capacity. It will allow for a new approach to keep society open: preventive, regular testing (twice per week), which will create green bubbles and get us ahead of the curve” – Niels Kruize, CCO, MolGen Why […]


IONTAS identifies novel SARS-CoV-2 neutralising antibodies

IONTAS and FairJourney Biologics, leaders in the discovery and optimisation of fully human antibodies, have announced the identification of neutralizing antibodies, which bind to multiple emerging SARS-CoV-2 variants. The results, generated from a combination of phage display technology and B-cell receptor repertoire sequencing of hospitalized COVID-19 patients, have identified potent neutralizing antibodies with distinct mechanisms of […]


ERBA Mannheim launches 2nd generation SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR Assay with room temperature storage

In response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Erba Mannheim has launched the ErbaMDx SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR Kit for detection of SARS-CoV-2. To overcome challenges in older COVID-19 molecular tests, Erba’s Cambridge(UK)-based development team has engineered a new assay to improve detection and ease of use with a single tube multiplex mastermix, compatible with room-temperature storage and […]


Biotech Team Develops ELISA Protocol for COVID-19 IgG Antibody Detection

ZTA Biotech, a Budapest-based biotech startup has announced the breakthrough development of a COVID-19 antibody (IgG) test using the ELISA protocol. This new detection method represents a great step forward in determining if patients have had COVID-19 and if they might still have immunity to the disease. Early results have proven 100% in specificity after […]


Siemens Healthineers molecular Fast Track Diagnostics SARS-CoV-2 Assay test kit available for use in Europe

Siemens Healthineers molecular Fast Track Diagnostics (FTD) SARS-CoV-2 Assay test kit is ready for immediate rollout for diagnostic use in Europe. This follows registration of the test kit for diagnostic use with the Luxembourg Ministry of Health. The test kit was released for research use only (RUO) on April 2, 2020. The test has shown […]


Oxford-based businesses collaborate to scale up production of SARS-CoV-2 antigens

OXGENE and The Native Antigen Company are collaborating to scale up production of SARS-CoV-2 reagents by combining OXGENE’s proprietary Adenoviral Protein Machine Technology with The Native Antigen Company’s antigen development expertise. Together, they aim to scale their antigen manufacturing capabilities to deliver high-purity, recombinant proteins for the development of diagnostics and vaccines. Unlike the PCR […]
