CeGaT completes coronavirus test portfolio

The rapid antigen test completes our comprehensive coronavirus test portfolio to understand and manage the pandemic: The PCR-based laboratory test can detect active infections with utmost certainty. The antibody test is not only used to detect past infections but also measures vaccination effectiveness in vaccinated individuals. Genome sequencing of positive samples identifies viral variants, providing information on how the virus evolves and spreads. Further information on our test portfolio can be found here.
