LMP assistant professor Amy Karger has been a key figure in the rapid development of an antibody test for COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2.  The test shows who has been exposed and has recovered from COVID-19.  Within 48 hours tested individuals can learn whether they have protective antibodies in their blood.  Specimens are being processed at LMP's Advanced Research and Diagnostics Laboratory.  Listen to a WCCO radio interview with Karger at this link.
