French group Eurofins launches new, lower-cost COVID-19 test

Reading Time: < 1 minute

French diagnostics company Eurofins is launching a new, lower-cost product to detect the presence of SARS-CoV-2 virus responsible for the COVID-19 disease, the company said on Thursday.

For the testing, Eurofins will pool five specimens and then undertake a single Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test while retaining the original, individual samples, with results typically provided within 24-48 hours, said Eurofins.

If SARS-CoV-2 is detected in the pool, individual PCR tests will be performed to definitively identify the individual sample(s) that were positive. If there is no virus detected in the pool, no further testing is required, the company said.
