“The world is realizing the benefits and challenges with these COVID-19 vaccines, and this antibody test solution will aid in helping our global citizens understand if they have the SARS-CoV-2 antibodies to help them better fight the virus. We’re currently in discussions to supply our new AcuVid COVID-19 Rapid Antibody Test to selected customers in Europe and South America.”

Therma Bright is not making any express or implied claims that its test product has the ability to eliminate or cure COVID-19 or the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

Therma Bright is focused on providing consumers and medical professionals with quality medical devices that address their unmet needs.

Therma Bright (THRM) is up by 3.52 per cent and is currently trading at $0.44 per share as of 9:30 am ET.
