NEW YORK, June 21 (Reuters) - Bayer AG on Wednesday said U.S. regulators approved its fully automated test for HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.
The German healthcare company said the U.S. Food and Drug Administration cleared the test, called EHIV, which works by detecting antibodies to the virus. It is to be used on Bayer's ADVIA Centaur Immunoassay System.
Bayer said it developed the EHIV test and will sell it under a business arrangement with U.S.-based healthcare company Johnson & Johnson.
