Additional information

  • All the samples (except healthy controls) have been tested using FDA approved SARS-CoV-2 test kits:
    • Swabs – BD UTV or equivalent: tested using BioFire Respiratory 2.1 with SARS-CoV-2.
    • Biofluids – Abbott RT-PCR test kit or equivalent; Eagle Biosciences IgG ELISA test kit or equivalent
  • Comprehensive, de-identified, covariate data such as age, gender, symptom onset date in addition to complete diagnostic and treatment is available.
  • Inventory is very fluid and sample numbers may change very fast. We are continuously accruing samples and also working with several Diagnostic and drug discovery companies to enable their research through sample provision.
  • Access to additional samples and longitudinal data are available for some custom programs.
