HISCL SARS-CoV-2 S-IgG Assay Kit

Quantification of SARS-CoV-2 S-IgG antibodies

The HISCL SARS-CoV-2 S-IgG Assay Kit for HISCL-5000 aims to help healthcare providers in monitoring and analysing temporal immunological profiles of SARS-CoV-2 infection and SARS-CoV-2 vaccine effectiveness in different population groups and areas.

More details

The assay targets IgG antibodies against the receptor-binding domain (RBD) portion situated in the S1 domain of the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein (S-protein), which play an important role in the neutralisation activity of the virus* (see figure).


Excellent clinical performance

The assay has a clinical sensitivity of 100% (≥ 21 days post onset of symptoms in 99 COVID patients) and a clinical specificity of 99.8% (477 samples from healthy individuals collected before the COVID-19 pandemic started), proving it to be accurate, reliable and of high clinical performance.
