Roche announced on Tuesday that its "reliable, high quality" Elecsys coronavirus antibody test is now available at over 20 different sites in the United States.

CEO of Roche Diagnostics North America Matt Sause stated that the test "will play an important role in getting people back to work." He added: "We are proud to partner with LabCorp in making this test available in the US."

The company added the test has a high specificity of 99.8% and can register antibodies that were developed late in the response of a person's immune system. Furthermore, Roche stressed it would be delivering "millions of tests per week" to labs across the US.
