Abstract

The aim of the project is to develop monoclonal antibodies against special protein building blocks of SARS-CoV-2. On this basis, an analytical rapid test for the specific detection of SARS-CoV-2 in patient samples, such as B serum will be established. The planned test procedure can form the basis for further research into the virus and the course of the disease and could possibly also be used in diagnostic procedures. The project builds on the BMWi-funded project "Monoclonal antibodies for the detection of respiratory disease MERS-CoV for use in rapid tests" (16KN073822).
