UK Government enters into a contract with Abingdon Health for supply of COVID-19 rapid antibody tests

The UK Government has entered into a contract with Abingdon Health, on behalf of the UK-Rapid Test Consortium (“UK-RTC”), for the supply of the AbC-19 Rapid Test. As part of the contract the UK Government has placed its first order for one million COVID-19 rapid antibody tests.

This follows an independent evaluation commissioned by the UK government of the AbC-19 Rapid Test, which will be published in full in due course by PHE, after peer review.

AbC-19 uses a small drop of blood from a finger-prick, and shows results in 20 minutes, without the need to go to a specialised laboratory.

The test can be administered by healthcare professionals, such as doctors, nurses, pharmacists and healthcare workers, at the point-of-care.  It has already received the “CE mark”, which indicates health and safety conformity for goods sold in the UK and EU.

The antibody test has been developed for the Department of Health and Social Care in response to the Government’s need to procure a high-quality antibody test.

To develop and mass produce the volumes needed for the UK population, Abingdon Health set up and led the UK-RTC in April this year.  The consortium brings together the UK’s largest rapid test medical manufacturers, working together to provide capacity for delivery of more than a million tests per week

The test detects IgG antibodies to “full trimeric spike proteins” of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.  This means the test detects those antibodies which interfere with the virus’s ability to enter the human cells.

Abingdon Health announces £1M funding for the development of a quantitative rapid test Smartphone Reader

Innovate UK has released £1M to fund a further next generation development of Abingdon Health’s lateral-flow rapid test readout technology; AppDx®. The project will see the enhancement of AppDx® at an accelerated pace to achieve a fully quantitative smartphone-based solution for the lateral flow assay (LFA) market.

AppDx® is cutting-edge software that transforms a Smartphone camera into a self-sufficient, standalone lateral-flow reader. By utilising connectivity within Smartphones, AppDx® then enables data captured from rapid tests to be securely shared via a data cloud to connected stakeholders.

AppDx® algorithms work under a “bring-your-own-device” model and the software considers test specific and end-user variables as well as vital configuration criteria for different phone models.
