A PAASE-PASUC-USACFI DASHBOARD ON REAL-TIME DEMAND FOR PPE (PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT) IN UNDERSERVED COVID-19 HOSPITALS AND OTHER FACILITIES IN THE COUNTRY

Among the challenges that PAASE is addressing is to equip and protect our frontline health workers in hospitals, clinics, testing laboratories and quarantine facilities who are dealing with COVID-19 patients.

Protecting our COVID-19 warriors with the much-needed personal protective equipment (PPE) will be vital in minimizing or preventing infection, morbidity and mortality among them.

PAASE Bulletin # 17

PAASE Bulletin #16

DETECTION OF IgG/IgM ANTIBODIES TO SARS-COV-2 BY LATERAL FLOW RAPID TEST KIT: AN ANALYTICAL METHOD VALIDATION PROTOCOL

The purpose of this validation protocol is to provide documented evidence that the analytical test method, “Detection of SARS-CoV-2 IgG/IgM Antibodies by Lateral Flow Rapid Test Kit” is suitable for its intended use.

The point-of-care rapid test kit is used for the detection of immunoglobulin G (IgG) and/or immunoglobulin M (IgM) antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 in venous or capillary blood, to assist screening of COVID-19 patients.
