RE: Comparative Evaluation of Commercially Available SARS-CoV-2 Antibody Tests


The World Health Organization (WHO) is exploring the interest of companies to participate in a large comparative evaluation of commercially available antibody detecting tests for SARS-CoV-2 at NRL and in cooperation of other partners including FIND, Erasmus Medical Centre, Duke NUS Singapore and the International Vaccines Institute.


The WHO SARS-CoV-2 antibody detecting assay performance evaluation will commence in December, 2020 under the coordination of WHO/WHE (World Health Emergencies programme). Tests of different formats e.g. ELISA, RDT, that are commercially available to detect antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 will be eligible.


Participation in the evaluation scheme requires acceptance to enter the WHO Emergency Use Listing process 

(pre-submission call and letter of  application).  


The EOI should be completed by 7 December 2020 using the online web-form found here:
