Application Area:Analyze SARS-CoV-2 N-protein Ab qualitatively and S-protein Ab quantitatively in plasma
"The tests are quite effective in our laboratory. Internal quality control yields reproducible results with high consistency. All external quality controls have also passed so far. There are 2 different reagent kits to determine N or S protein, that can be useful in assessing whether the patient has come to contact with the disease or has been vaccinated. The 2 reagent kits have a very similar name though, causing some mix-ups in a laboratory that is highly automated and working 24/7 with a large number of different laboratory technicians rotating."

The cobas® SARS-CoV-2 Test provides reliable and high-quality results for the improved management of COVID-19, in individuals suspected of COVID-19 by their healthcare provider, and those without symptoms or other reasons to suspect COVID-19. Healthcare professionals can use this test to assess if patients are at risk of developing the disease by this pathogen, which can contribute to severe respiratory distress, complications, and potential death.
The test is for use on the fully-automated cobas® 6800/8800 Systems under FDA Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for individual samples and for pooled samples containing up to and including six individuals. This test, including the pooling workflow, is also available as a CE-IVD test for countries accepting the CE-mark.
