Bio-Rad launches new SARS-CoV-2 panels

By staff writers

September 30, 2021 -- Bio-Rad Laboratories has launched Bio-Plex immunoglobulin A (IgA) and IgM SARS-CoV-2 panels to detect IgA and IgM antibodies against four SARS-CoV-2 antigens. The panels are for research use only.

Bio-Rad's Bio-Plex Pro Human IgA SARS-CoV-2 S1/S2/N/RBD 4-Plex Panel and the Bio-Plex Pro Human IgM SARS-CoV-2 S1/S2/N/RBD 4-Plex Panel join Bio-Rad's existing Bio-Plex Pro Human IgG SARS-CoV-2 N/RBD/S1/S2 4-Plex Panel to complete the set of three separate qualitative multiplex I immunoassays that detect IgA, IgM, and IgG antibodies against four SARS-CoV-2 antigens, the company said.

The panels can assist researchers in developing vaccines, as well as help public health researchers who perform seroprevalence studies based on serology specimens to identify individuals who may have been exposed to SARS-CoV-2, the company said.
