Icosagen's COVID-19 antibody ELISA test is available for diagnostics with an IVD CE mark 

On September 3rd the Health Board registered our developed diagnostic test with the IVD CE mark. The test can be used to detect antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 in human blood samples to determine if a person has had the disease. Volunteers recovered from COVID-19, whose donated blood was used to validate the test, played a very important role in the validation of the test. Long-term studies are underway to determine the duration of antiviral immunity associated with COVID-19 and possible protection against future infections. Although the company is not developing the vaccine, these studies also provide a better understanding of the possibility of using the vaccine and the duration of the antibody immunity against SARS-CoV-2. The test is based on recombinant viral proteins produced by Icosagen and has been developed in Tartu. The test works by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), allowing the semi-quantitative in vitro detection of IgG and IgM antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 virus in human serum or plasma (Medical Device Database (MSA) code 15531). All antigens used for the test are also available in our catalogue.
