COVID NEUTRALIZING ANTIBODIES
Neutralization Antibody test detects circulating neutralizing antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 that block the interaction between the receptor binding domain (RBD) of the viral spike glycoprotein with the ACE2 cell surface receptor.
- Detects the antibodies that have a blocking/neutralization function.
- The test helps in current COVID-19 investigations of sero-prevalence, assessment of herd immunity, the longevity of protective immunity, the efficacy of different vaccine candidates as well as tracking infection.
- The test is based on ELISA and is conducted using an ICMR approved Kit with established SOPs & experienced staff.
