The SARS-CoV-2 Rapid Antigen Test is a reliable, rapid chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of specific antigens of SARS-CoV-2 present in the human nasopharynx. This test is an aid in detecting antigen from the SARS-CoV-2 virus in individuals suspected of COVID-19 and is strictly intended for professional use in laboratory and Point of Care environment.
The Elecsys Anti-SARS-CoV-2 S is an immunoassay for the in vitro quantitative determination of antibodies (including IgG) to the SARS-CoV-2 spike (S) protein receptor binding domain (RBD) in human serum and plasma. The assay uses a recombinant protein representing the RBD of the S antigen in a double-antigen sandwich assay format, which favors detection of high affinity antibodies against SARS‑CoV‑2. The test is intended as an aid to assess the adaptive humoral immune response to the SARS‑CoV‑2 S protein.
The cobas SARS-CoV-2 & Influenza A/B Test is a multiplex reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) assay intended for simultaneous qualitative detection and differentiation of SARS-CoV-2, influenza A virus, and/or influenza B virus in nasal or nasopharyngeal swab samples collected from individuals suspected of a respiratory viral infection consistent with COVID-19 by their healthcare provider. The test runs on the cobas 6800/8800 Systems and has a full-process negative control, positive control and internal control. It is the first commercial test for fully automated high throughput systems to detect and differentiate SARS-CoV-2, influenza A virus and/or influenza B virus with a single sample.
The cobas SARS-CoV-2 Test is a qualitative assay that allows the detection of nucleic acids in samples from patients who meet COVID-19 (coronavirus) clinical and/or epidemiological criteria and is intended for use on the automated, high throughput cobas 6800/8800 Systems. The single-well dual target assay includes both specific detection of SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19 Coronavirus) and pan-sarbecovirus detection for the sarbecovirus subgenus family that includes SARS-CoV-2.
The Elecsys Anti-SARS-CoV-2 is an immunoassay intended for qualitative detection of antibodies to SARS‑CoV‑2 in human serum and plasma (K2‑EDTA, K3‑EDTA, Li‑heparin) to be used as an aid in identifying individuals with an adaptive immune response to SARS‑CoV‑2, indicating recent or prior infection. The electrochemiluminescence immunoassay (ECLIA) uses a recombinant protein representing the nucleocapsid (N) antigen for the determination of antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 and is intended for use on cobas e immunoassay analyzers.
The Elecsys IL-6 immunoassay is an in vitro diagnostic test for the quantitative determination of IL 6 (interleukin 6) in human serum or plasma and is used to help clinicians quickly identify COVID-19 patients with severe inflammatory response who need mechanical ventilation. The Elecsys IL-6 immunoassay is an electrochemiluminescence immunoassay (ECLIA) and is intended for use on cobas e immunoassay analyzers.
