SARS-CoV-2 Total AssaySecure your community with science and scale

Rapid and accurate antibody testing on a large scale is vital to address the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Siemens Healthineers SARS-CoV-2 Total (COV2T) Assay* can be used effectively for broad population testing. There is the potential that broad population testing for antibodies may help re-open society in a smart way.

Assay Specifications

The COV2T assay produces results in as little as 10 minutes on the Atellica® IM Analyzer with a capacity to process up to 440 assays per hour† with the sensitivity and specificity laboratories have come to expect from us.

The Science

The COV2T assay detects both IgM and longer-lasting IgG antibodies with high sensitivity of recent and prior infection. This allows for identification of patients who have developed an adaptive immune response, which indicates recent infection or prior exposure.

We smartly selected the receptor-binding domain (RBD) of the S1 spike antigen, the most unique portion of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

The Atellica IM and ADVIA Centaur COV2T assays* detects IgG and IgM antibodies to the S1 RBD antigen.

Reliable and rapid SARS-CoV-2 antibody testing on a large scale for both reference laboratories and acute care settings
The COV2T assay can be used with a full range of Siemens Healthineers systems such as:

This enables accurate SARS-CoV-2 antibody testing on a massive scale for both reference laboratories and acute care settings. The test produces results rapidly—in as little as 10 minutes on the Atellica IM Analyzer, with a capacity to process up to 440 assays per hour.

With a global installed base of over 20,000 instruments§ and a manufacturing capability to produce over 50 million tests a month, Siemens Healthineers offers hope that the goal of effective management of the threat of COVID-19 is within reach.

“As one of the leading specialized laboratories, we recognized the critical need of our customers to have rapid and accurate testing to manage COVID-19 amongst their patients and staff. The Siemens Healthineers total antibody test enables us to confidently deliver fast, reliable results that will be extremely valuable in the surveillance of the disease.”
