FEATURED AACC ARTERY DISCUSSION

IgG/IgM SARS-CoV-2 Testing in Neonatal Plasma/Cord Blood

One Artery user is wondering what kits/analyzers are available for performing SARS-CoV-2 IgG and IgM antibody testing in neonatal serum/plasma/cord blood. Respondents say that any SARS-CoV-2 antibody test should work, it would just need to be validated for this particular sample type. Validation could potentially be done by taking a few adult blood samples that are positive for antibodies, diluting these samples with pooled fluids of the type that the lab wishes to use, and then checking linearity.
