The test, which has an accuracy rate equal to or higher than standard lab assays for antibodies with sensitivities and specificities over 99 percent, is based on NuGenerex Diagnostics’ Express II diagnostic platform.

Results become available within 30 minutes from a drop of blood taken by a fingerstick and the device’s simplicity allow its use in all clinical settings.
