Austria Rolls Out 5 Million Lepu Covid-19 Rapid Antigen Tests for School Pupils
BEIJING, Jan 12, 2021--In November 2020, The European Commission (EC) published a Recommendation on the use of rapid antigen tests for the diagnosis of SARS-CoV-2 infection. Following the instructions, the Austrian Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research provided public guidelines for the national COVID-2019 assessments in all schools earlier this month.
Around five million SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Rapid Test Kit (Colloidal Gold Immuno-chromatography) (Supplier: Beijing Lepu Medical Technology Co., Ltd. China) for students will be provided to all schools in Austria. Heinz Faßmann, Bundesminister für Bildung, Wissenschaft und Forschung, advocates that more children take part in this regular antigen testing, the safer the school life becomes for children and everyone else.
As the incidence of SARS-CoV-2 rises, so does the need for tests: health systems and medical laboratories in Member States are under strain, and testing capacity is frequently exceeded. Antigen testing provide quick findings in 15 minutes, making them ideal for detecting a high viral load. As a result, persons who are extremely contagious can be detected rapidly.
Beijing Lepu Medical Technology Co., Ltd. has said that excellent quality and timely product delivery will be ensured to protect the safety of all Austrian students. The company continues to make progress with its pipeline and continues to work with EU regulatory agencies on timelines, and more COVID-2019 related tests are coming soon in European markets to support sufficient and quick diagnosis fighting COVID-19:
• 2019-nCoV Neutralization Antibody Test Kit (Fluorescence Immunochromatography)
• 2019-nCoV Neutralization Antibody Test kit (Colloidal Gold Immunochromatography)
• 2019-nCoV Neutralization Antibody Test Kit (ELISA)
In March 2021, German BfArM approved Lepu Medical SARS-CoV-2 antigen rapid test kit for home use. The test kit makes the coronavirus detection procedures rapid and easy. Read more.
