The NADAL® COVID-19 IgG/IgM Rapid Test is a chromatographic lateral flow immunoassay for the qualitative detection of anti-SARS-CoV-2 IgG and IgM in human whole blood, serum or plasma samples. It is important to note that in the early stages of the infection, anti-SARS-CoV-2 IgG and IgM may be below the detection limit of the test. The test is intended as an aid in the diagnosis of primary infections and possible secondary infections with SARS-CoV-2.
High sensitivity and specificity
Easy to use
Fast and reliable test results in just 10 - 20 minutes
Testing can be performed using whole blood (from venipuncture or fingerstick), serum or plasma
Test can be stored at room temperature
About the virus
The name 'coronavirus' is derived from the characteristic crown-shaped appearance of the surface proteins (so-called spikes) of its envelope (Lat. corona: crown). The family Coronaviridae (CoV) includes 2 subfamilies, 5 genera, 23 subgenera and approximately 40 known species. Many of these viruses cause disease in mammals and birds and can be transmitted from animals to humans. Human coronaviruses (hCoVs) were first described in 1965. The known human pathogenic representatives are primarily members of the Betacoronavirus genus and cause illnesses ranging from the common cold and bronchitis to severe acute respiratory infection (SARI) and pneumonia.
The coronavirus that is currently circulating, provisionally known as 2019-nCoV and officially designated as SARS-CoV-2, is the third human pathogenic coronavirus in the last two decades, and the seventh known overall. It follows severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS-CoV) in 2002 and Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS-CoV) in 2012. The clinical manifestation of the current SARS-CoV-2 is officially designated as COVID-19.
