NBC6: South Florida Company Says Rapid Test Can Screen For COVID-19 Antibodies


“As companies race to get rapid COVID-19 tests approved by the Food and Drug Administration, one in South Florida says theirs can produce quick results that can get people back to work and help those on the front lines.”

The test, called COVID-Rapid, screens blood for antibodies and can identify who was previously infected and may have already developed immunity to the virus.

In order to know who has had the disease since so few people have been tested for it, we need to be able to tell who has it in the past,” said CEO Vincent DeGennaro.”
