Interrogate COVID-19 with Tecan’s Neopterin ELISA

Offering you an early detection system for infections.

Neopterin: an early warning system

Our Neopterin ELISA provides you with a sensitive test to measure neopterin, which serves as an early warning system of infection in the body. Neopterin can serve as a biomarker for infection of the body by invading pathogens, and recent research suggests it can help to evaluate the severity of a SARS-CoV-2 infection (Ozger et al, 2020; Hailemichael et al, 2021).
