AXIM Biotechnologies, an healthcare solutions company focused on oncological research, has announced the development of NeuCovix, a rapid diagnostic test measuring levels of functional neutralizing antibodies that are believed to prevent SARS-CoV-2 from entering the host cells, according to a press release from the company.
