Avacta has announced that its Affimer-based rapid point-of-care (‘POC’) test strips to detect the SARS-COV-2 spike protein, that have been developed and evaluated by its partners at Cytiva (formerly GE Healthcare Life Sciences), have shown positive initial performance data.
Following this important news, the next step will be to optimise in order to achieve the best possible limit of detection, given that this will ultimately be a key factor in determining the clinical sensitivity of the test.
This is expected to be completed within weeks, whereupon the design of the final product will be transferred to UK manufacturers that are currently being put in place by Avacta in anticipation of production.
