CovAb™, the only oral fluid rapid, Pan Ig antibody test for Covid-19 gets FDA Emergency Use Authorization
CovAb ™ is the first and only rapid, oral fluid-based, point-of-care antibody test authorized by the FDA for use under an EUA.

The test is CLIA-waived, is all-inclusive, does not require any additional components or instrumentation, and test results are available within 15 minutes.
In addition to being rapid and noninvasive, the CovAb ™ test has sensitivity of 97.6% and specificity of 98.8%.
