Ortho Clinical Diagnostics (Raritan, NJ, USA) exhibited its range of high quality, accurate and cost effective COVID19 testing solutions at the 2021 AACC Annual Scientific Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo held at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, September 26-30.

Over the span of the four day event, attendees connected with global leaders in clinical chemistry, molecular diagnostics, mass spectrometry, translational medicine, lab management, and other areas of breaking science in laboratory medicine.

Ortho has been at the forefront of developing high quality, accurate, cost effective COVID19 testing solutions that run at high volumes. At AACC 2021, Ortho demonstrated its high-throughput testing solutions for SARS-CoV-2 infection, antibody detection and antigen detection. These included the high-throughput, highly accurate VITROS SARS-CoV-2 antigen test that detects acute infection of SARS-CoV-2. The test delivers fast, high-volume testing for active infection with excellent specificity and sensitivity, making it a viable alternative to PCR testing.

In addition, Ortho highlighted its three qualitative antibody tests, including the VITROS COVID-19 Total and IgG antibody assays that provide highly accurate and reliable detection of SARS-CoV-2 antibodies to help clinicians and researchers understand immune response; and its VITROS Anti-SARS-CoV-2 Total N antibody test that is designed to capture total antibodies to the nucleocapsid protein. Also on display at AACC 2021 was the VITROS Anti-SARS-CoV-2 IgG quantitative test that helps labs to quantify the level of COVID-19 antibodies for patients and individuals in their communities. The VITROS Anti-SARS-CoV-2 IgG quantitative test is the first quantitative test to receive U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) EUA. Ortho also demonstrated its VITROS Performance Dashboard that allows labs to view productivity data from Ortho analyzers including: test volumes, positivity rates, quality and efficiency information to help make more informed decisions for the hospital and community.
