New Delhi: Drug major Cipla on Wednesday said it signed a licensing agreement with a Belgium-based MultiG for the distribution of their COVID-19 rapid antibody test kit, across most emerging markets and Europe. This licensing agreement is part of Cipla’s efforts to enhance global access to life-saving treatments and diagnostic infrastructure for patients in need, the company said in a regulatory filing.

“As part of this agreement, Cipla will be responsible for distribution of the COVID-19 rapid antibody kit that will be manufactured by MultiG” the company added.

Cipla said MultiG rapid antibody kit has been commercialised in over 20 countries already, with sensitivity and specificity exceeding 92 per cent.
