Novacyt is to launch two PathFlow® COVID-19 antigen lateral flow tests (LFTs) to strengthen the Company's COVID-19 portfolio and to pursue significant new market opportunities, especially in point-of-care (POC) settings. The Company will initially target private market opportunities for these LFTs via its existing distribution network. Novacyt's two new PathFlow® COVID-19 antigen tests are small, instrument-free and contain all the components required for safe sample collection, preparation, testing, interpretation of results, and disposal for convenient use by healthcare professionals or patients in home settings. The use of point-of-care testing is a first line rapid screening option and, therefore, Novacyt's PathFlow® antigen LFTs complement the Company's existing polymerase chain reaction (PCR) portfolio for SARS-CoV-2 diagnosis. PathFlow® COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Pro is a CE Marked LFT for professional use detecting SARS-CoV-2 antigens using either anterior nasal samples or nasopharyngeal samples to provide results in approximately 15 minutes. When using nasal swab specimens, the test demonstrated a sensitivity of 93.5% and specificity of 99.3% and when using nasopharyngeal swab specimens, it demonstrated sensitivity of 93.4% and specificity of 99.4%. Both sampling methods were tested against 316 samples. This product is available immediately. PathFlow® COVID-19 Rapid Antigen is a self-test LFT to detect SARS-CoV-2 antigens using oral fluid samples and provides results in approximately 15 minutes. This test demonstrated a sensitivity of 90.1% and specificity of 99.3% from 303 clinical samples. The test offers mass screening for home, travel, events, and workplace markets. Novacyt expects to make this LFT available as a CE Marked product shortly. PathFlow® COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Pro and PathFlow® COVID-19 Rapid Antigen have been developed with a partner through an OEM agreement in conjunction with Novacyt's Microgen Bioproducts division.
