Two immunoassay tests to detect IgM & IgG antibodies

VIDAS® SARS-COV-2 IgM and VIDAS® SARS-COV-2 IgG automated qualitative assays rapidly detect antibodies to help identify individuals with previous exposure to SARS-CoV-2.

  • Reliable results in less than 30 minutes
  • 2 assays with same protocols to differentiate IgM & IgG
  • Single dose automated test in easy all-inclusive kit
  • Use on all VIDAS® instruments

Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS‑CoV‑2) is a novel coronavirus discovered in China in December 2019 that has led to an unprecedented global pandemic. It causes coronavirus disease 19 (COVID‑19), a respiratory illness with symptoms ranging from mild to severe with possible progression to pneumonia, multiorgan failure and even to death. Identification of individuals who have been infected by this new virus is key for better management of the patients and to face the COVID-19 health crisis.

VIDAS® SARS-COV-2 IgM (9COM) and VIDAS® SARS-COV-2 IgG (9COG) use a two-step sandwich enzyme immunoassay method with a final fluorescence detection (ELFA). For use on any VIDAS® instrument, they offer flexibility and reliability for results in less than 30 minutes.
