HOUSTON—10 April 2020 Assured Flow Solutions (AFS) is teaming up with Innovative Research, Inc (Novi MI) to help with the critical task of developing an ELISA based test kit. The kit will determine whether an individual carries antibodies against SARS-CoV-2, the novel coronavirus that causes the illness COVID-19. AFS has provided a grant to Innovative Research, Inc to assist in the rapid development, validation, and distribution of these testing kits. The ability to detect the presence of specific antibodies against the novel coronavirus in individuals is of critical importance to ongoing research and could help to accomplish goals such as:

 

  • Validating vaccine efficacy
  • Identifying donor sources of convalescent plasma for research and therapeutic use
