Coronalab.eu launches a new combination test that can detect SARS-CoV-2 and the flu. In addition to SARS-CoV-2 infection, this special test also allows us to see whether it is caused by two of the common infuenza viruses that cause the flu (Influenza A and B). Coronalab.eu offers both a PCR test variant and an (antigen) rapid test.
“From the most recent figures from the RIVM, we see an increase of almost 50% in the number of corona infections in the Netherlands. At the same time, virologists expect a heavier flu epidemic than in recent years. The symptoms will (partly) overlap and this will cause more unrest in this time of Covid-19,” said Patrick de Boer, CEO of Coronalab.eu. “With this combination test, we want to help organizations quickly gain clarity in order to prevent new infections and the loss of employees.”
No additional sample is required for this combination test. In the lab, the sample is only tested for multiple infections. The test will be available from next week. The costs of this test are € 79.00 excl. VAT. The antigen rapid test variant will cost € 39.00 excl. VAT.
Coronalab.eu is part of Microbe&Lab, an ISO certified laboratory for SARS-CoV-2 validated by the RIVM. Coronalab.eu helps companies and individuals with reliable tests for various infectious diseases.
