Conventional tests for antibodies to the coronavirus show hurt man with coronavirus, but they can’t determine how strong an immunity to disease.
Scientists from North Carolina state University have developed a new type of test for antibodies to the coronavirus, which demonstrates the quality of the generated immunity in patients.
Conventional tests for antibodies to the coronavirus show hurt man with coronavirus, but they can’t determine how strong an immunity to disease. However, the new test can help epidemiologists to determine the level of immunity in the population.
The test works by analysing blood. During analysis, determined by antibodies which specifically target a fragment of the protein of the coronavirus. This piece is called domain that binds to the receptor protein of the coronavirus – RBD. The test shows the levels for this domain, which correspond to all important levels of neutralizing antibodies are responsible for immunity to SARS-CoV-2.
At this stage scientists Refine the test order to reduce cost and further reduce the time of getting result. Ideally, researchers want the analysis would take about an hour. This will make it competitive, since modern analysis tests levels of antibodies take from several hours to several days.
