Evaluation of serological tests for SARS-CoV-2: Implications for serology testing in a low-prevalence setting
Robust serological assays are essential for long-term control of the COVID-19 pandemic. Many recently released point-of-care (PoCT) serological assays have been distributed with little pre-market validation. Methods: Performance characteristics for five PoCT lateral flow devices approved for use in Australia were compared to a commercial enzyme immunoassay (ELISA) and a recently described novel surrogate virus neutralisation test (sVNT). Results: Sensitivities for PoCT ranged from 51.8% (95% CIdoi:10.1101/2020.05.31.20118273 fatcat:7fwzwudbrnh75jqfjcsgwze4cq
