Switzerland’s Roche to make coronavirus antibody tests

Agency News

Swiss drugmaker Roche said it aims to offer blood tests to identify those who had been infected with the coronavirus, reported Reuters.

The tests could be available by early May in countries that accept European CE regulatory standards, according to the report. The Basel-based company is also seeking authorization from U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the report said.

Before Roche’s announcement, other companies such as U.S.-based Abbott Laboratories and Becton Dickinson and Co, and Italy’s DiaSorin said they hope to sell tests that show people’s immune systems have developed antibodies in response to the coronavirus.
