With support from the Norwegian Research Council, Vitas has developed and validated a IgG serology test for covid-19 in Dried Blood Spots(DBS). The test is now validated and shows excellent performance (>94% sensitivity and 99 % specificity). The test includes a CE IVD marked DBS collection kit as well as a CE IVD marked ELISA assay using spike protein S1 as antigen. An extended validation in 1000 individuals was completed 1. Juli 2020. The purpose was to test the assay in routine, get feedback from users on user friendliness and investigate the rate of infection among these 1000 subjects.
