Beckman Coulter’s Clare site is manufacturing key serology products (assays) in the fight against COVID-19. Serology (or antibody) testing can be a vital tool for determining who has already been infected and might have immunity to a virus.  Serology testing measures a person’s levels of antibodies, created as an immune response to an invader.
