Apr 15, 2020

On April 15, 2020, Accelerate Diagnostics and BioCheck announced a commercial supply and collaboration agreement by which Accelerate will distribute the BioCheck MS-FAST system and BioCheck SARS-CoV-2 tests in North America, Europe, and the Middle East.

The BioCheck MS-FAST system, a fully automated chemiluminescence immunoassay analyzer, and the BioCheck SARS-CoV-2 chemiluminescence-based tests are capable of processing blood, serum, or plasma samples in 30 minutes to detect IgG and IgM antibodies that confirm exposure and potential immunity to COVID-19. BioCheck has applied to receive FDA’s Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for their SARS-Cov-2 tests.

The BioCheck SARS-COV-2 IgG/IgM test may help determine when it may be safe for recovered patients to resume normal activities
