This scientific literature overview demonstrates the excellent performance of the fully automated nucleocapsid protein antigen assay Lumipulse® G SARS-CoV-2 Ag

May 27, 2021

Lumipulse G SARS-CoV-2 Ag was the first high-sensitive nucleocapsid protein antigen assay launched on a fully automated chemiluminescent platform.

It has been used by Japanese authorities since August 2020 for quarantine screening of arriving travelers in major international Japanese airports.1,2,3

Fujirebio’s advanced technology supports also multiple European test centers to set up easily accessible, reliable and rapid COVID 19 testing e.g. testing in Germany’s largest airports and screening in Italy for specific target communities such as schools, residential care homes, prisons to control and monitor the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.4,5

The excellent performance, high quality and accessibility of the Lumipulse G SARS-CoV-2 Ag testing solution has been evaluated in multiple published studies.

One of the most recent examples is this publication in The Lancet Microbe:
