Mologic CE Mark Rapid Antigen Test
Omega (AIM: ODX), the medical diagnostics company focused on CD4, infectious diseases and food intolerance, welcomes the news that Mologic Ltd ("Mologic") has received CE Mark for it's professional-use COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Test.
In June this year, the Company signed a material transfer agreement ("MTA") with Mologic providing access to raw materials and know-how to manufacture their lateral flow antigen test. The test will provide health professionals an accurate detection of the nucleoprotein of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in respiratory swabs.
As announced at the Interim results in November 2020, Omega has now established its technology transfer team and look forward to updating shareholders in the New Year on how the technology transfer and CE Mark is going, so the Company can sell the Rapid Test under Omega's VISITECT ® brand.
Colin King, CEO of Omega Diagnostics, said: "We welcome the news that Mologic has received CE Mark for its Rapid Antigen Test, and are excited about completing the technology transfer and CE Marking in the New Year."
