Rapid Test for COVID-19, Flu and RSV is Given CE-Marking
Mobidiag Ltd. has announced it has obtained CE-IVD marking for its Amplidiag® RESP-4 molecular diagnostic test for the rapid and simultaneous detection of some of the most prevalent respiratory viruses: SARS-CoV-2 (responsible for COVID-19 infection), Influenza A, Influenza B and RSV.
These viruses present similar symptoms, making it difficult for physicians to determine accurately which virus a patient has. The Amplidiag® RESP-4 assay can rapidly and simultaneously determine an accurate diagnosis from one patient sample using nasopharyngeal swabs, helping to guide clinicians to the relevant treatment decision for each patient.
The test runs on the Mobidiag Amplidiag® Easy platform, which provides clinicians with an optimized sample screening process, with automated DNA/RNA extraction and PCR plate setup. Based on well-established high-throughput PCR technology, the platform can process 46 samples in approximately three hours.
Mobidiag is currently developing Novodiag® RESP-4, a molecular diagnostic test using its Novodiag® platform for the rapid and on-demand detection of SARS-CoV-2, Influenza A, Influenza B and RSV.
This test will complement Amplidiag® RESP-4 and enable clinicians to detect respiratory viruses to support early decisions in managing efficiently epidemiological and infection control measures, isolate patients in a timely manner, and ultimately improve patient care and outcomes.
Please note that Mobidiag tests are not home testing kits. They are only available for healthcare professionals, and not for patients directly. Please follow the recommended processes and guidance for your location if you have any symptoms of respiratory infections.
