COVID-19 Tests & Assay kits

Correct diagnosis of the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 is of paramount importance in fighting the pandemic caused by it. Therefore a large effort was put into quickly developing tests and assay kits for detection of SARS-CoV-2 in, for example, blood or swabs from patients with symptoms of COVID-19. These kits are mainly focused on either identifying the viral RNA by RT-PCR or finding antibodies against the viral membrane proteins. Several of these testing systems have acquired the CE-IVD certification immediately and are therefore suitable for in vitro diagnostics of patients. One of the highly anticipated tests is the rapid test, which is a chromatographic immunoassay that indicates the presence of primary and secondary infection based on the presence of IgG and IgM antibodies against SARS-CoV-2. Bio-Connect Diagnostics offers a number of different rapid tests (with and without CE-IVD mark) as well as PCR-based assays. Additionally, we offer a number of high-quality ELISA kits for detection of IgG antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 or the identification of viral antigen proteins in human plasma and serum. Our assays allow high-throughput testing of a large number of patient samples or sporadic checks on individuals.

We offer various SARS-CoV-2 detection kits, such as rapid tests, PCR kits, ELISA kits and kits for viral sample preparation, including the iLAMP Novel CoV19 iONEBIO FICS and RapiGEN's BIOCREDIT COVID-19 Ag kit. If you want to order, please send your request to: orders(at)

SARS-CoV-2 IgM/IgG Antibody Assay Kit (Immunochromatography) (CE-IVD)
This product is used for qualitative detection of IgM and IgG antibodies of SARS-CoV-2 in human serum, plasma, whole blood or fingertip blood in vitro.

In the process of pathogenic microorganism infection, IgG and IgM are the most commonly used antibody markers of infectious diseases. IgM, as the first antibody in the process of infection, is usually used as a marker of acute infection. With the development of infection, IgM concentration gradually decreased and disappeared after the appearance of IgG. IgG usually exists in the body for a long time, even if the virus has been completely eliminated. Positive blood can be used as an indicator of infection and previous infection. Therefore, detecting SARS-CoV-2 IgM antibody and IgG antibody is of great clinical significance and is of great significance for effective control of the large-scale transmission of SARS-CoV-2.
