Alabama researchers join global fight against COVID-19 disease

Scientists and researchers in Alabama are engaged in the global effort to stem threats posed by the COVID-19 disease.

Today, Huntsville’s Diatherix announced that it has developed a highly sensitive and specific assay, or test, for the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes the COVID-19 respiratory infection.

Diatherix, located on the Huntsville campus of the HudsonAlpha Institute of Biotechnology, also said its lab is prepared to evaluate respiratory specimens collected by healthcare providers for COVID-19.

Diatherix’s announcement comes as public health authorities across the U.S. step up testing to get a clearer picture of how the novel coronavirus is spreading across the nation.
