Gulf Coast Pharmaceuticals Plus Partners with Healgen Scientific to Distribute COVID-19 IgG/IgM Rapid Test Device


OCEAN SPRINGS, Miss., Aug. 24, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Gulf Coast Pharmaceuticals Plus (GCPP) announced today its partnership with Healgen Scientific LLC to become the authorized distributor of its Rapid COVID-19 Test Device in the United States. The COVID-19 IgG/IgM (Whole Blood/Serum/Plasma) Rapid Test Cassette by Healgen Scientific is one of the few FDA EUA authorized rapid test devices currently available.

This test is intended to screen patients for COVID-19 by using lateral flow technology for the qualitative, differential detection of both anti-SARS-CoV-2 IgM and IgG antibodies. In general, antibodies can be detected 1-3 weeks after infection. The COVID-19 IgG/IgM (Whole Blood/Serum/Plasma) Rapid Test Device does not require any instrumentation and can produce results in just 15 minutes.

"We are excited to make this rapid COVID-19 test available to our customers across the United States," said GCPP Managing Director Ken Ritchey. "This test device can provide fast on-site results with just a small sample of serum, plasma, or blood, and it will be extremely useful to clinics and healthcare facilities working hard to get a more accurate picture of the overall spread of the coronavirus."

The COVID-19 IgG/IgM (Whole Blood/Serum/Plasma) Rapid Test Device has been authorized by the FDA under Emergency Use Authorization (EUA). It is intended for use by authorized laboratories and is not for home use.
