FIND Ebola Test Directory
FIND has launched its publicly available and searchable directory of Ebola diagnostic tests. The directory is aimed at providing a central directory of tests for ebolavirus species detection outside the World Health Organization's and FIND's emergency use authorization lists. FIND noted that while many point-of-care and near point-of-care tests developed during the 2013-2016 West Africa Ebola epidemic were made for the Zaire ebolavirus, or ZEBOV, strain, a need to confirm the Sudan ebolavirus, or SUBOV, strain remains. The Geneva-based global diagnostic alliance invites diagnostic developers to submit details about their Ebola test for inclusion in the directory. Questions about submitting a test to the database can be sent here.
