A few days ago, the research and development team of the Oriental Ocean (Beijing) Medical Research Institute, a subsidiary of Oriental Ocean Health, developed a new coronavirus antibody detection kit (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay). The preliminary performance verification results of the kit showed excellent sensitivity and specificity. At present, there are no similar products approved in China.
Since the outbreak of pneumonia caused by the new coronavirus, the research team of the Oriental Ocean (Beijing) Medical Research Institute has immediately invested in the research and development of the new coronavirus antibody detection kit, starting from the preparation and purification of genetically engineered antigens, to obtain the fastest Highly expressed and highly active genetically engineered NP antigens, and on this basis, the 2019-nCoV novel coronavirus IgM antibody detection kit (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) and the novel coronavirus IgG antibody detection kit (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) have been developed at the same time. . The above detection kit can complete the high-throughput detection of 96 samples within 1.5 hours. The serological test used is a commonly used clinical diagnostic method, which is simpler and faster, and is more suitable for early screening in primary medical institutions. with auxiliary diagnosis. Since IgM can be detected in the early onset or acute stage of the new coronavirus infection, and some cases can even be detected in the late incubation stage, the detection of IgM antibody in the infected person can achieve early diagnosis. In response to an outbreak, the screening of a large number of high-risk groups and suspected cases who are in close contact with patients can be effectively achieved in the shortest time. At the same time, the detection of serum IgG antibodies, continuous serum antibody detection and clinical observation for patients in the infection period and recovery period can help to understand the rules of virus elimination and be used for large-scale epidemiological investigations and epidemiological studies. Access to precious data.
At present, the new coronavirus antibody detection kit (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) has completed the preliminary clinical evaluation, and will soon start the registration and application related work. At this stage, Oriental Ocean Health will provide the above-mentioned test kits free of charge for the auxiliary diagnosis of new coronavirus-infected pneumonia cases and the needs of related scientific research work.
