Using this test, negative subjects know they are Covid-free.
There are two ways to use the Cov-Secure test:
either at the same time as the RT-PCR, to lower the false-negative rate of the diagnostic
or as a first-line test for Covid-Free zones (negative subjects will likely not have the Covid-19)
Unlike other Covid-19 diagnostic tests (including RT-PCR, antigenic and RT-Lamp), Cov-Secure is blood based. There is no variability in the results due to the sample collection.
Indeed a major part of the false-negative results of the RT-PCR and antigenic tests is due to the naso-pharyngeal sample collection.
Using the Cov-Secure test, based on a standard blood-draw, there is no such variability, leading to a much safer test result.
either as a confirmation of RT-PCR, reducing false-negative
or as a first-line test, reducing RT-PCR by 80%

These markers are weighted depending on the patient's age and sex.
Tests may take place in any local medical test laboratory that is compliant with BioPredictive's technical recommendations.
