Qlife to follow up Danish clinical evaluation on rapid tests for covid-19
A Danish clinical evaluation on rapid tests for covid-19 conducted at Hvidovre Hospital was published on the Hospital’s website, 15 February 2022. The study includes a comparison of test results for SARS-CoV-2 with antigen tests compared with RT-qPCR. Results for Qlife's SARS-CoV-2 test differ from results published in previous peer-reviewed scientific studies on the test and the company has initiated a dialogue with Hvidovre Hospital.
"We are surprised that the results from the Danish clinical evaluation differ from previously scientific and published study on more than 1000 samples, which among others were conducted together with Hvidovre and Nordsjællands Hospital, on our SARS-CoV-2 test with the Egoo platform. We have contacted the study's lead author to get validate the evaluation method", says Thomas Warthoe, CEO of Qlife.
Previous scientific published study show that Qlife's covid-19 test can deliver test results with almost the same sensitivity and specificity as laboratory tests (qRT-PCR) in 30 minutes without access to specialized laboratory equipment.
