    Background: COVID-19 antibody testing has been shown to be predictive of prior COVID-19 infection and an effective testing tool [1]. The CLUNGENE® SARS-COV-2 VIRUS (COVID-19) IgG/IgM Rapid Test Cassette was evaluated for its utility to aide healthcare professionals. Method: Two studies were performed using the CLUNGENE® Rapid Test: 1. An expanded Point-of-Care (POC) study at two clinical sites to evaluate 99 clinical subjects: 62 positive subjects and 37 negative subjects were compared to RT-PCR, PPA, and NPA (95% CI). Sensitivity was calculated from blood collection time following symptom onset. 2. A cross-reactivity study was performed to determine the potential for false positive results from other common infections. Results: Specificity of subjects with c.. View More»
