Main features of Vircell COVID-19 serology assays
- The use of SARS-CoV-2 recombinant antigens improves the performance of the kits.
- IgM + IgA detection complements molecular tests when the viral load decreases or when false negatives are suspected due to unsuitable samples in patients with clear symptoms.
- The combination of IgM + IgA significantly improves sensitivity since COVID-19 affects the mucous membrane. The early production of IgA antibodies in this kind of infections could be particularly high.
- IgG detection allows monitoring and confirming recovery and possible immunity, when other molecular and serological markers become negative.
