Novir INSTA COVID-19 Antibody Test Device

Novir has begun production of its INSTA COVID-19 rapid antibody tests, which can help slow the spread of the virus and help schools, businesses, and other organizations reopen, and stay open, safely and responsibly. 

Novir has received the CE Mark, allowing for the tests’ sale and use in Europe and other markets that accept and recognize the CE Mark. MPE-INC is manufacturing the tests on behalf of Novir.

The INSTA antibody blood test detects if you have produced antibodies to COVID-19 and help determine if you’ve had the virus, even without symptoms. Results can be delivered in 15 minutes via the client’s smartphone or email, using Novir’s TRACK technology.
