CAS Releases Special Report Highlighting COVID-19 Diagnostic Test Research

CAS has issued a special report in ACS Central Science titled “Assay Techniques and Test Development for COVID-19 Diagnosis.” This report provides a detailed overview of COVID-19 diagnostic tests, trends, and resources.


Assay Techniques and Test Development for COVID-19 Diagnosis

To provide a better understanding and comparison of the diagnostic tests available in the fight against COVID-19, CAS has produced a report summarizing the basic principles of molecular and serological assays being used in diagnostic tests for SARS-CoV-2. The report highlights recent advancements in testing technologies and provides a high-level view of currently available diagnostic tests.


Recent advances support scalability of COVID-19 diagnostic testing

The COVID-19 pandemic, caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, continues to grip the world. Large-scale testing is required for countries to successfully limit infections and mortality rates, and is key to easing many lockdown restrictions. In this unprecedented crisis, every hour matters when it comes to identifying and preventing further spread of this virus.
