News: Cipla Launched Rapid Antigen Test for Covid-19 Diagnosis
December 16th, 2020; Cipla launched the quick antigen test kits for Covid-19 diagnosis with the association of Premier Medical Corporation Private Limited in India. The test is a quick mark of-care nasopharyngeal swab test that simply recognized the presence or absence of Covid-19 antigen in the patient's body, producing results inside 15-20 minutes. The test is marketed under the brand name 'CIPtest'. This is Cipla's second dispatch in the diagnostics space after Elifast ELISA Test Kit. In this joint effort, Cipla will further liable for the marketing and distribution of the rapid antigen detection test for the subjective identification of SARS-CoV-2 antigen that made by Premier Medical Corporation Private Limited.
One of the major factors driving the growth of global Rapid Covid-19 Antigen Test Kit market is sudden outbreak and spread of Covid-19 virus around the world. According to World Health Organization (WHO), globally, the highest percentage of cases had been reported in the 25-39 age groups, with approximately 50% of cases in the 25-64 age groups. Also, the percentage of deaths increases with age, and approximately 75% of deaths were in those aged 65 years and above in 2020. In addition, rising investment and development of better and superior Rapid Covid-19 Antigen Test Kit is also empowering the growth of Rapid Covid-19 Antigen Test Kit market in forecast period. For instance; the Foundation for Innovative New Diagnostics (FIND) and Unitaid announced that the first contracts had been finalized, following an open call for Expressions of Interest (EOI) that launched on July 4th, 2020 to drive reasonable access to fit-for-purpose antigen-detecting rapid diagnostic tests (Ag RDTs) for Covid-19. Furthermore, association of government & private organizations and increasing funding by government also fostering the market growth. For instance; in 2020, The Pan American Health Organization organized 190,000 new COVID-19 antigen diagnostic tests which offered to four countries in Latin America and the Caribbean and took training to implement pilot testing of their operation. Also, PAHO’s strategic fund, a regional technical cooperation mechanism for pooled procurement of essential medicines and health supplies, worked with the countries to facilitate access to these diagnostic tests. For example; the Government of Canada announced the first-ever contribution to the therapeutics mainstay of UNICEF's that recently launched Access to COVID-19 Tools Accelerator Supplies Financing Facility (""ACT-A SFF"") to fight the pandemic.
However, Rapid Covid-19 Antigen Test Kit may need confirmatory testing because it may give false test result and less sensitive as compared to Nucleic Acid Amplification Tests (NAATs) especially among asymptomatic people which may hamper the market growth. In spite of that, growing investments by government and private organizations for production of Rapid Covid-19 Antigen Test Kit around the world can offer more opportunities for the further growth of the market.
North America is dominating the Rapid Covid-19 Antigen Test Kit market with the highest rate due to growing investments in research developments of rapid Covid-19 antigen test kit, presence of key players and merger of various companies & government for development of antigen tests in this region.
