NeuCovix TM NEUTRALIZING ANTIBODY RAPID DIAGNOSTIC TEST
Sapphire Biotech has developed the first-in-class rapid
(10-minute) point-of-care test that measures the concentration of neutralizing antibodies to COVID-19. Sapphire Biotech believes this rapid test will be useful in identifying the best convalescent plasma for treating patients fighting COVID-19 and for monitoring neutralizing antibodies elicited by COVID-19 vaccines.
Using proprietary polyclonal antibodies in collaboration with world-renowned research and academic centers, we have introduced a prototype diagnostic test that measures levels of QSOX1-L in blood and filed for patent protection.
Through its research collaborations with various academic and medical facilitates, Sapphire Biotech is working with an enzyme called “QSOX1” in both its clinical and diagnostic research.
Research suggests a chemical compound that inhibits QSOX1 could be an oncology drug. Sapphire Biotech has discovered SBI-183 to be such a drug.
