FDA Authorizes Emergency Use Of Remdesivir Drug To Treat Coronavirus / Remdesivir: Trump Wants FDA To Quicken Its Approval For COVID -19 Treatment / USA Approves 5-Minute Test For Coronavirus (2) (3) (4)
|COVID-19 : FDA Authorizes New Two-minute Test For Coronavirus by flyinnizam(m): 8:40am On Apr 01, 2020|
The Food and Drug Administration issued emergency approval to a two-minute test for coronavirus, its maker, Bodysphere Inc., said Tuesday.
The move could help increase the U.S. testing capability, which has been improving but is still not where it needs to be, according to governors.
“Results are delivered on site in as fast as two minutes,” Bodysphere said in a press release. “This is a game changer as today in the United States, most COVID-19 testing results take between two to seven days.”
The company said it is positioned to “have millions of test kits on the front lines in weeks” and is working with federal agencies to distribute the tests.
The move comes on top of another rapid test, from Abbott Laboratories, that was approved last week and can report results in 5 minutes.
The new test from Bodysphere uses antibodies in the blood to determine current or past infection, the company said.
