Biolidics has received product authorisation from Indonesia’s ministry of health for the usage and distribution of the company’s ClearEpi SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Rapid Test Kit (ClearEpi ART) in Indonesia. 

In a filing to SGX dated March 15, the company states that the authorisation remains valid until March 10, 2022, and the extension of its validity may be permissible should there be no undesirable events upon usage.
