Test Platform from Thuringia Checks Vaccination Status for Corona, Measles, Diphtheria & Tetanus simultaneously

Scientists at the InfectoGnostics Research Campus Jena have developed a new microarray that can detect antibodies against a wide range of infectious agents. With a single drop of the patient's blood, it is thus possible to test whether the immune system has responded to a vaccination or if there is…
