Scientists at the Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer Research (FNL) successfully increased the yield production of a challenging protein used in antibody tests for SARS-CoV-2, the virus behind COVID-19, publishing their findings earlier this month in Protein Expression and Purification. 

Scientists at the Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer Research and investigators across the National Institutes of Health (NIH) have developed a highly specific serology test to determine whether a person has antibodies to SARS-CoV-2, a vital tool to understanding the spread of infection from the virus that causes COVID-19.
