Veredus Laboratories Pte Ltd “Veredus” today announced the CE-IVD marking of VereCoV™ Detection Kit for commercial launch in Europe. The test is intended for the qualitative detection of 2019 novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) also known as SARSCoV- 2 that causes COVID-19.
The kit was developed to provide an easy-to-use solution for clinical testing, public health surveillance and detection of the coronavirus from nasal or nasopharyngeal swab specimen to enable authorities to take appropriate actions. The test integrates PCR amplification and microarray for rapid qualitative detection of 2019-nCoV with the additional capability to detect a subset of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (SARS-CoV) simultaneously with the same test.
“We are ready to respond effectively to the needs of hospitals and reference laboratories by providing a quality molecular testing solution for the pandemic,” says Dr Rosemary Tan, Chief Executive Officer of Veredus Laboratories.
