Re: Rapid diagnostics of COVID-19

Message Content

Dear UNIVERSITY OF GUELPH (KEMPTVILLE COLLEGE)'s all team,

Along with the spreading global pandemic of coronavirus COVID-19, we have placed great efforts to develop reliable diagnostic tests to stop the spread of the disease. While most manufacturers have been focusing on PCR technology, during the outbreak in China, it was identified that PCR has certain technical limitations, for example cases of false negative were found, which coupled with the complex specimen collection requirments and the general difficulties in performing PCR outside dedicated PCR lab , demonstrated that molecular technology  might not be the optimal diagnostic method for use during such massive global outbreak.

We are very pleased to announce the launching of two Rapid test kits for detection of COVID-19, COVID-19 IgG Lateral Flow Assay and COVID-19 IgM Lateral Flow Assay, have already been certified by CE.The test kits can  rapid diagnosis of suspected patients, screen close contacts immediately and monitor proved patients dynamically. 

Product flyer is attached for your review. If further information needed, please contact us. If you do not wish to receive any further mails from us, please write the world REMOVE in the subjrct field by sending reply to us. we do apologize for any inconvenience.
