Startup KAICO debuts home-use COVID-19 test kit

On September 1, Kyushu-University startup, Kaico, began selling a self-test kit for new coronavirus antibodies. The easy-to-use blood collection device helps clients understand the levels of their COVID-19 antibodies even after getting the second vaccination. The kit is currently available at local drugstores and pharmacies for ¥3,000~¥4,000, while the company aims to expand the sales area nationwide. Test results are provided about a week after mailing their blood samples. KAICO / Asahi
