New kit serum antigen test COVIBLOOD

Have you heard of a new serum antigen test for the SARS CORONAVIRUS 2 ?

Is a code being created?

Hello Sylvie,

Regenstrief Institute and the LOINC team are working closely with the US Food & Drug Administration and the Center for Disease Control on identifying the appropriate LOINC term to use for each SARS-CoV-2 assay that has received FDA’s Emergency Use Authorization (EUA). These can be tracked on the CDC’s website at I checked the latest edition (November 18, 2020), and COVIBLOOD or COVI-LAB is not listed as yet. Nor is it listed on the FDA’s EUA page :

It is possible you’ve inquired just as the processes are unfolding. Do you have additional information on the manufacturer’s name? Please post any additional information that you’re aware of. The LOINC team accelerates COVID-19 term development.

Thank you,

Pam Banning, Lab LOINC committee co-chair

The following was received from Sylvie as an email. Keeping here for continuity. Will keep an eye out for it.


Unfortunately, I have no information on the manufacturer.

I was hoping you could provide me with it.

It is certainly under development.

Than you
