FDA issues emergency authorization for new drug from Accelerate Diagnostics and BioCheck Inc, (EUA) for the BioCheck SARS-CoV-2 IgM and IgG Combo Test and fully-automated instrument that is MS-Fast.
This serology-based evaluation platform in conformity utilizing the formerly disclosed commercial supply and collaboration contract, Accelerate Diagnostics will market, commercialize, and support. The system that is MS-Fast BioCheck SARS-CoV-2 chemiluminescence tests are designed for processing peoples serum samples in 30 minutes to detect antibodies that indicate current or prior infection that is COVID-19.
“The BioCheck SARS-CoV-2 IgM and IgG Combo Test targets the protein that is s1 which could be the major antigen of the novel coronavirus,” stated Shelley Campeau, Accelerate Diagnostics’ Clinical Trials Manager. ” the fewest similarities to other coronaviruses, which enables for the lower possibility of false positives due to have a cross reactivity. The protein that is s1 also the primary target for the best COVID-19 vaccines leads, that are increasingly being developed to neutralize antibodies that can block the hsv simplex virus from infecting healthy cells. A few other EUA approved tests target the nucleocapsid (N) protein, but we believe the S1 protein antibodies are almost certainly going to be protective against infection and are hence an even more clinically relevant marker.”
Jack Phillips, Accelerate Diagnostics’ Chief Executive Officer, also commented, “This EUA will allow for more adoption that is extensive of MS-Fast serology-based COVID-19 antibody testing platform. Serology evaluation is definitely an important device within the battle against COVID-19, as it enables the demographic and geographic surveillance required to guide an appropriate response towards the pandemic that is current. Today’s announcement represents the following point of our commercialization efforts to produce a simple-to-use, scalable platform for COVID-19 serology screening available to all or any laboratories.”
Dr. Amy Zhang, Vice President and General Manager of BioCheck, stated, “This EUA is a testament that is strong the performance of our tests. Through accelerate diagnostics to your partnership, we believe that the MS-Fast instrument and BioCheck SARS-CoV-2 IgM and IgG Combo Test provides a quick and dependable platform for COVID-19 serology assessment across the globe.”
Accelerate Diagnostics, Inc. is an in vitro diagnostics company specialized in solutions that are providing the global challenges of antibiotic sepsis and resistance. The Accelerate Pheno® system and Accelerate PhenoTest® BC kit combine several technologies targeted at reducing the time clinicians must wait to figure out the most optimal treatment that is antibiotic deadly infections. The Food And Drug Administration cleared system and kit fully automate the sample planning steps to report phenotypic susceptibility that is antibiotic in approximately 7 hours direct from positive bloodstream cultures. Current outside studies indicate the answer offers results 1–2 days faster than existing methods, enabling clinicians to optimize selection that is antibiotic dosage specific towards the specific patient days earlier in the time.
