The study, co-authored by fourth-year medical student Nahrain Putris and Dr. Kenneth Mitton, focuses on fingertip blood kits that can be effectively used to determine if individuals have COVID-19 antibodies at the point-of-care. The goal is to find reliable testing alternatives to standard blood draw-based tests, which can be time-consuming and have struggles in scaling.
Although there are a growing number of fingertip blood antibody test kits on the market, EpiGentek's SeroFlash kit was chosen as the subject of the study as past experiences with other reagents from the company were described as "reliable and specific as promised" by Mitton. Reagents, the main ingredient of chemical-based tests, are a crucially important element to these tests and therefore need to come from a trustworthy, proven source.

Individuals can participate in the study if they've had a confirmed case of COVID-19, had since recovered and tested negative, or had been clinically assessed and cleared by qualified medical staff. This helps the researchers confirm testing correlation and see if SeroFlash is free of the false positive problem that has been common in other poorly validated antibody tests on the market.
"So far," Mitton comments, "we have not seen any false positive tests from persons who also have no antibodies based on the clinical arm draw test."
While the study is ongoing, there's promise in these preliminary results that the study could show that a robust point-of-care antibody test can be an effective tool to track and contain the virus at scale while understanding population-wide immune response to SARS-CoV-2.
