Validatie door Nederlands MM lab laat zien dat de InTec SARS-CoV-2 antigeen sneltest ruim binnen de WHO criteria uitkomt.


Zelfs in grotendeels mild-symptomatische populatie laat prospectieve validatie door Nederlands klinisch MM lab zien dat de InTec SARS-CoV-2 antigeen sneltest ruim binnen de WHO criteria uitkomt.

De studie staat nu vermeld op de RIVM website en is op aanvraag in zijn geheel beschikbaar, net als de directe vergelijkingen met Roche en Abbott Ag sneltesten.

Voor alle teststraten en professionele gebruikers van antigeen sneltesten betekent het een kwalitatief sterke toevoeging aan het testarsenaal, tegen een acceptabele prijs.

Report in local newspaper on saliva virus RNA collection sets for kids


Antigen rapid test evaluated in VTM by Microbe&Lab: 93 % sensitivity and 100% specificity

InTec’s new rapid test for SARS-CoV-2 was evaluated by Microbe&Lab in Amsterdam on 50 positive PCR samples and 50 negative PCR samples.

All samples were taken from a VTM sample bank. Full report available on request

Performance on fresh samples may be expected to be even better, which will be the objective to validate in the coming weeks.

The new tests will be on stock from January 27, 2021.

Turnkey PCR labs

In the months November and December, ProDiag successfully supplied complete rtPCR labs to clients in The Netherlands, Hungary, Romania, Kosovo and others.

Turn-key means we cover all process steps:

  • collection (swabs and saliva)
  • extraction (instruments and reagents)
  • cycling/reading (instruments and reagents)

Plus basic lab accessories:

  • laptop
  • freezer
  • vortex
  • centrifuge
  • transparent rtPCR tube strips with caps
  • pipettes and pipette tips

Saliva as an easy-to-collect material is showing promising progress in SARS-CoV-2 Virus RNA collection

By Anton Pruijssers

Chief Executive Officer at ProDiag BV and DTwist BV

Lowering thresholds to participate in testing programs is receiving attention, both in terms of convenience for the general public and in terms of lowering the need for trained collection staff.

ProDiag is proud to announce to have started the delivery of 180.000 saliva collection sets to the Dutch Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sports. These sets will be used especially for painless sampling with children, for which the virus collection with (large) swabs is an even bigger challenge than for adults.

Research groups comparing SARS-CoV-2 detection between patient-matched nasopharyngeal- and saliva samples conclude that saliva samples

  • Show less variability in self-sample collection
  • Show a greater detection sensitivity and greater consistency throughout the course of infection
  • Provide earlier detection of viral RNA at onset of symptoms and is even detectable before onset of fever or respiratory symptoms

We will be happy to provide you with the underlying publications.

We assume saliva will increasingly be used as the collection method of choice as input to rtPCR testing in labs.

ProDiag is nu lid van Diagned

ProDiag is geaccepteerd als lid van Diagned, de Nederlandse Associatie van fabrikanten en vertegenwoordigers van in vitro diagnostica producten

Diagned streeft naar het creëren van een zo gunstig mogelijk klimaat voor de ontwikkeling, de afzet en het verantwoord en efficiënt gebruik van in vitro diagnostica. Zij doet dat samen met alle andere betrokken partijen.
Diagned zet zich in voor:
  • erkenning van het belang van diagnostiek in de zorg en voor de individuele zorgconsument
  • vergroting van de kennis over in vitro diagnostiek en de waarde daarvan
  • stimulering van onderzoek naar de efficiënte inzet van in vitro diagnostiek
  • stimulering en acceptatie van innovaties in in vitro diagnostiek
  • aanvaardbare regelgeving en normen voor de industrie
  • uitbouw van partnership: contacten met beroepsgroepen van aanvragers en gebruikers van diagnostica, zorgverzekeraars en overheid.

We kijken uit naar een voorspoedige samenwerking met Diagned!

First 500,000 InTec’s rapid tests arrived in Europe

ProDiag BV has received its first shipment of 500,000 of InTec’s SARS-CoV-2 IgM/IgG antibody rapid tests!

Next shipments are lined up. It shows China’s NMPA and Ministry of Commerce have stepped up their role in granting export licenses for validated products only.

We base our Instructions For Use on a study performed at the CDC in Wuhan (n=454), resulting in a 94,4% sensitivity and 98% specificity. We are actively pursuing to add more data to this dataset.

InTec has been a specialized manufacturer of rapid tests in infectious diseases for 30 years and had 2 other rapid tests (HIV and HCV) succesfully pass the WHO Pre-Qualification program. This means that technical files, quality system and production sites have passed WHO teams’ audits.

We strongly believe launching products should be done in a responsible way. InTec’s test has therefore been entered into evaluations at China CDC locations, FIND, US FDA EUA, Erasmus Medical Center, RIVM, WHO EUL and many others.

Although interim reports on partial data sets are circulating, full study reports will come out soon.

This test is delivered to medical professionals and sub-distributors only.

We are proud to contribute in the fight against COVID19!
