Erba Mannheim (London, England) has announced availability of validated automated protocols for its range of ErbaLisa COVID-19 IgG and IgM ELISA kits in order to improve global availability of high-quality testing methods for SARS-CoV-2.

The ready-to-use ErbaLisa COVID-19 IgG and IgM ELISA kits allow for the qualitative and semi-quantitative detection of IgG/M antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 in human serum. Erba's solid phase assays use proven technology, and total incubation time is 50 minutes at room temperature with a simple one step serum dilution. ErbaLisa COVID-19 assays are built for superior performance and reliable interpretation of results. With full CE certification, the reliable and automation-friendly COVID-19 ELISA kits are now available through Erba's global distribution network, including in the US.

Optimized protocols for popular instruments manufactured by Dynex, Stratec, Awareness, and Delta Biologicals are now available, as well as for Erba's own analyzers including the ELAN 30s microstrip processor. Such protocols will help meet or exceed manual performance characteristics and start reporting clinical results faster and with more confidence.
"With more than one million ELISA COVID-19 tests already issued, we are confident this development will help labs adopt our high quality and high value tests more quickly," said Nikhil Vazirani, MD of Erba Mannheim.
