Development of a high performance COVID-19 immunoassay, an essential tool to establish immunity passports in the Luxembourgish population

Project Details


The current situation of lock-down in many countries creates a strong need for large screening efforts in order to assess the immune status of the population and to advice decision makers on measures to relaunch social and economic activities. Due to the critical need for serological testing on high numbers of individuals over several months, shortages are predictable and a major threat to society. The present proposal aims at the setup of a high-performance and flexible diagnostic assay using an immunodetection technique and recombinant viral surface proteins expressed and purified in Luxembourg, which can be readily adapted to changing needs, such as the inclusion of newly emerging specific virus strains in routine testing or the targeted monitoring of immune response kinetics in clinical studies.
