NG Biotech has developed serological tests for the rapid detection (result in 15 minutes) of antibodies produced in persons contaminated by the Covid-19 virus. Reserved for professional use, they are designed and manufactured in France and have the CE mark. They have been validated by the Institut Pasteur (National Reference Centre for Respiratory Infection Viruses) and by the French High Authority for Health.
Barbara Bertholet and Rachel Devidal have been working with NG Biotech since 2017, mainly on the other ranges of rapid detection tests developed by NG Biotech, particularly in the field of bacteriology with its rapid detection test for antibiotic-resistant bacteria, and in the field of women’s health with its range of serological pregnancy tests.
These tests are available in more than 70 countries, including the United States.
