Rapid test for the determination of antibodies against Sars-Cov-2

Rapid test for the determination of antibodies against Sars-Cov-2
To determine immunity to SARS-Cov-2 and the effectiveness of potential vaccines, the amount of neutralizing antibodies in the blood of recovered or vaccinated individuals must be determined. A traditional neutralization test usually takes two to three days and must be carried out with infectious coronaviruses in a laboratory complying to biosafety level 3. A Swiss-German research team from Bern and Bochum has launched a test that takes only 18 hours and doesn't have high biosafety requirements. The researchers have published their report in the journal Vaccines on 15 July 2020.
