The UK-RTC COVID-19 rapid antibody test has obtained a CE mark. The CE mark is approved for professional use in the UK and EU and is now available to commercial distributors.
We will begin mass production of the test and it will be rolled out from the end of August. The test can be administered by healthcare professionals, such as doctors, nurses, pharmacists and healthcare workers.
The test is 99.40% accurate, following production of tens of thousands of tests across multiple production scale batches. Testing was performed at Ulster University and at the laboratories of Abingdon Health.
The test will be named the “AbC-19TM Rapid Test” and will provide an indication if a person has had the virus. It uses a small drop of blood from a finger-prick, and shows results in 20 minutes, without the need to send a sample to a lab.
