T-spot SARS-CoV-2 detection (ELISPOT)
SARS-CoV-2 monitoring needs more than just antibodies, complete your view with T cells
The T-SPOT Discovery SARS-CoV-2 assay is a simplified variant of the ELISPOT assay technique. ELISPOT assays are exceptionally sensitive since the target cytokine is captured directly around the secreting cell, before it is diluted in the supernatant, bound by receptors of adjacent cells or degraded. This makes ELISPOT assays much more sensitive than conventional ELISA assays.
The T-SPOT.COVID test is the first COVID-19 test for use in the detection of a T cell-mediated response to SARS-CoV-2 infection to be announced as submitted for Emergency Use Authorisation (EUA) to the US FDA and achieve CE marking for sale in the EU
