Roche receives US approval for Coronatest

Pharma – The pharmaceutical company Roche can launch a test in the USA that can detect corona and influenza viruses at the same time. The US FDA has granted emergency approval for such a combined test.

Especially with the start of the normal flu season, the symptoms of infections with the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 and the influenza viruses A / B are difficult to differentiate, according to a statement on Friday. The now approved test enables a simultaneous test for these two virus groups. These test systems could deliver 384 or 1,056 results within eight hours. The test is also available in markets with the CE mark.
