In a significant move for COVID-19 testing, Abbott India has introduced its laboratory-based rapid antibody test kits in India. These will begin shipping to India by the end of May and will scale up substantially to meet the demands in a short span of time. The antibody test of Abbott will initially be available on the company’s ARCHITECT i1000SR and i2000SR laboratory instruments, which are currently used in many laboratories across India. These machines will halve toe capacity to run up to 100-200 tests per hour, which could be a great boon in ensuring speed of testing. Abbott India has also been working with the regulatory authorities to address the imperative need for accurate and reliable testing in India. This includes rapid tests that can detect antibodies on a finger prick, as well as core laboratory molecular tests useful for screening larger populations.
