  Controls & Extraction

  Swabs/Transport Medium

  • Transport medium incl. Rayon/Dacron/Flocked swabs by Vircell
  • Single Covid 19 Mouth and Throat Swab (for the NaGene Kit and others)

  ELISAs

  Line Immuno Assays

    Serological confirmatory test for the detection of IgG antibodies against SARS-CoV-2: recomLine-SARS-CoV-2 IgG_CE-IVD

  Rapid Tests

Antigen rapid tests - aid in diagnosing suspected cases, negative results require confirmation test with PCR


Antibody rapid tests aid to determine if individuals had recent SARS-CoV-2 infection

  • 2019-nCoV IgG/IgM Antibody Rapid Test (single use Fingerstick whole blood)
    A rapid (10min) and easy to use test for the qualitative detection of IgG and IgM Abs. 25tests/box

  Environmental/Food Diagnostics

  COVID-19 Companion Diagnostics

  • Triage mild of servere outcome

    • suPAR is a marker of chronic inflammation, which is associated with clinical severity and mortality. With regard to COVID-19, it is likely that suPAR can triage whether patients will have a mild or a severe outcome of the infection. Learn more please click: LINK

  • Bacterial and Fungal Co-Infections / Sepsis
    Bacterial and fungal co-infections, including antibiotic resistance are shown in the early data from Wuhan. This confirms the previous pandemic data that indicated bacterial co-infection rates as high as 29%, and rates of sepsis above 30% among ICU patients.

    • T2 Biosystems provides the only FDA-cleared products to identify bacterial and fungal pathogens as well as resistances directly from whole blood by using fully automated T2 Magnetic Resonance technology (T2Dx).

  • Coagulation related
    The recent release of ISTH interim guidance on recognition and management of coagulopathy in COVID-19 suggests increased testing for routine parameters like PT, FIB, DDi. With all the different publications and guidelines around COVID-19 and haemostatic changes, our partner Stago UK has created an educational page on this topic. LINK

    FFP2-Mask with elastic ear loops and adjustable nose clips with PM 2.5 anti-dust and anti-pollen function. High BFE/PFE; Material: non-woven and melt blown filter. Color: white. Please contact us for more details. LINK

  • Hand Disinfection Devices & Solutions
    Professional hand hygiene is one of the most important measures to protect personnel as well as patients and visitors.

    • Steripower touchless hand disinfection device
      With its large opening for both hands and ability to take all standard Euro Bottles up to 1000 ml, the Steripower® touchless hand disinfection device offers high-end technology combined with a timeless design. Please click the LINK for more information.

    • Hand Disinfectant
      Alcohol-based broadband skin and hand disinfection with a quick effect on the basis 70% Isopropanol without the addition of colors and scents for use in the medical field, but also adequate for handling with food. Please click the LINK for more information.

  • Surface Disinfection
    Many potentially infectious bacteria, viruses, yeasts and moulds can survive on surfaces for considerable amounts of time.

    • Disinfection Wipes
      Surface disinfection with ready to use and fast acting alcohol-free disinfection wipes that are already effective after 1 minute. Please click the LINK for more information.

    • HPVPA Surface disinfection process

  • Air Filtration / Mobile Air Decontamination
    Airborne pathogens present a unique challenge in infection control. Recently, research at the University of Florida showed that SARS-CoV-2 virus particles can linger in the air as aerosols, making it spread faster.

    • The PLASMAIR portfolio by airinspace offers high-end and extraordinary effective air decontamination treatment that is a benchmark thanks to the HEPA-MDTM technology. Please click the LINK for more information

  • Infection Control Beddings
    Health Care Associated Infections (HAI) combined with antibiotic resistance is a global challenge that brings hygiene and prevention to heavier focus. One of the often-overlooked areas in HAI prevention is soft surface – link in a chain of cross-infection between patients. The SleepAngel pillow was also proven to be effective in acting as barrier for Human Coronavirus 229E, used as a representative for the Coronavirus family. The test carried out using a BioStage impactor demonstrated that the pillow was able to block 99.99% of virus.

    • SleepAngel Medical Barrier Bedding is a patented bedding range, clinically proven to block pathogens*, allergens, microbes and mould. It is the world’s first barrier bedding range to combine absolute barrier protection with airflow – for user comfort.
      * Tested pathogens include MRSA, C. Difficile, E. coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Candida albicans, Aspergillus niger, Norovi-rus, Influenza Type A, Adenovirus 5, Coronavirus 229E (HcoV 229E)
