COVID-19: Simple glucose meter test could tell if you have antibodies

  • Current assays that can accurately measure antibody levels against SARS-CoV-2—the virus that causes COVID-19—are costly, time-consuming, and require sophisticated detection systems.
  • However, scientists have now developed a rapid and cost-effective antibody assay that can quantify antibody levels with the help of glucose meters commonly used for measuring blood sugar levels.
  • The sensitivity of this new glucose meter-based antibody assay was similar to current ‘gold standard’ assays, and the test could also be adapted for other medical conditions.
