-- Abingdon Health plc (AIM: ABDX), a leading international developer and manufacturer of high quality and effective rapid tests, announces the commercial launch and UKCA and CE-marking of AbC-19™ Semi-Q Rapid Test, a lateral flow test that detects the presence of IgG neutralising antibodies to the full trimeric spike protein of the SARS-CoV-2 virus and produces semi-quantitative results via a line intensity scorecard. The product was initially launched for research purposes in September 2021.
AbC-19™ Semi-Q Rapid Test is available for use by professionals or trained lay-users, meaning government agencies, pharmacists, testing centres or workplaces can use the test to identify and monitor a person's level of antibody-based protection to COVID-19.
The presence and strength of IgG neutralising antibodies following infection and/or vaccination is a key indicator of an individual's protective immune response to COVID-19. The intensity of the line on the scorecard, which can be seen visually, is proportional to the number of IgG antibodies present in the finger-prick blood sample, with higher levels of antibodies producing a stronger test line.
