Example Sentence: For the past few weeks, more scientists have been working diligently to verify that coronavirus antibody tests on the market actually deliver accurate results. “There are multiple tests that look reasonable and promising,” said Dr. Alexander Marson, an immunologist at the University of California, San Francisco. Other scientists were less sanguine than Dr. Marson. Four of the tests produced false-positive rates ranging from 11% to 16%; many of the rest hovered around 5%. “Those numbers are just unacceptable,” said Scott Hensley, a microbiologist at the University of Pennsylvania.
