Abbott’s RealTime ZIKA Test Receives FDA Emergency Use Authorization – Block Scientific’s March Newsletter

Home > Promotions/specials

Abbott’s RealTime ZIKA Test received Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use by authorized laboratories. This is the first molecular test made by a commercial manufacturer authorized to detect Zika virus RNA in serum, plasma, whole blood (EDTA) and urine (whole blood and urine collected alongside a patient-matched serum or plasma specimen). Designed for use on the m2000 RealTime System, this molecular test may provide the ability to identify the active virus over a longer time period with whole blood and could provide more accurate results within 5 to 7 hours.
