Aalto Bio Reagents announces it is supplying reagents for the manufacturing of tens of millions of COVID-19 antibody tests per month
DUBLIN, June 9, 2020 (Newswire.com) - Aalto Bio Reagents Ltd. a leading developer of critical raw materials and reagents for the development of diagnostic tests, globally announced today that its Sars-CoV-2 n-s1-S2 antigens, Lysis buffers and Viral transport media are part of assays that are being run in Europe and the U.S. on the screening front line for detection of COVID-19 with production estimates in the tens of millions of COVID-19 antibody tests per month.
From the start of this COVID-19 pandemic in January, Aalto Bio has supported over 50 global diagnostic companies and vaccine developers to build tests for COVID-19 with critical raw materials for the CV-19 virus detection which has enabled front-line testing using multiples of millions of diagnostic tests. In February 2020, Aalto Bio began offering its first neucleocapsid COVID-19 protein soon after the Wuhan strain of the virus came on stream. In April, this was followed by our new COVID-19 Lysis buffer reagent for pre-treating COVID-19 samples prior to testing and then in late April our Viral transport media to transport COVID-19 samples. The early availability of our COVID 19 proteins has helped diagnostic manufacturers and vaccine developers alike build high-quality assays with our critical raw materials to faster determine the clinical status of COVID-19.
“Aalto Bio Reagents Ltd. remains on hand to help our diagnostic manufacturing partners around the globe meet their COVID-19 diagnostic testing requirements, as we have done since the outset of this world health crisis by delivering first-in-class critical raw material products during this pandemic. We will continue to offer ourselves to help innovate diagnostic testing to faster diagnose this virus," stated Philip Noone CEO Aalto Bio.
