27 Jan Coronavirus Test
Scientists at Randox Laboratories will have developed within two weeks, a rapid swab test for 2019-nCoV, the new strain of coronavirus.
The new test will utilise Randox Biochip Technology, with results available from the Randox Vivalytic within 2-3 hours, and within 5 hours on the Evidence Investigator, a high throughput analyser that is capable of processing 54 different samples simultaneously.
As a coronavirus, 2019-nCoV results in a range of respiratory symptoms similar to those of other respiratory infections, including the common cold.
Randox Health’s Cold, Cough and Flu test, available also as a Respiratory Tract Infection Array from Randox Biosciences, can test for 22 viral and bacterial respiratory infections simultaneously. The test therefore determines the exact cause of your symptoms and differentiates between mild and serious infections, such as coronavirus.

Randox is committed to saving and improving lives on a global scale, and will bring you updates on developments on our test for 2019-nCoV as and when they happen.
