The research team of the Center for Research and Knowledge Transfer in Biotechnology, headed by Beata Halassy, has successfully established a wild-type SARS-CoV-2 neutralisation test, creating conditions for the development, control and application of specific immunoglobulins in the treatment of COVID-19 in Croatia, the University of Zagreb said in a press release.
