DHSC secures 1 million antibody tests amid coronavirus (COVID-19)

The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) has announced that an agreement for 1 million antibody tests has been made with the UK Rapid Test Consortium in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The antibody testing kits, which include a finger-prick device that provides results within 20 minutes, will ‘support nationwide surveillance studies to track the spread of COVID-19 in the population’. Public Health England has evaluated the test and will publish an evaluation report in the coming weeks.
