As Variants Spread, Self-Reporting Can Provide Solace
BinaxNOW Self Tests allow users to self-report, helping organizations and communities monitor COVID-19.
Public health guidance, vaccination rates and rates of infection are changing quickly. But one variable remains constant when it comes to COVID: the need to quickly know if you have it or not. That's especially true as people re-enter the workplace, children go back to school, variants spread, and flu and cold season heat back up as people interact more with each other.
With rapid testing widely available, we've continued to innovate to improve results reporting. Now, our BinaxNOW COVID-19 Self Test allows people to self-report test results through our NAVICA platform. As part of an updated emergency use authorization from the FDA, the ability for people to more easily self-report BinaxNOW test results will allow organizations, such as schools and workplaces, as well as communities to quickly detect rising COVID-19 cases or potential outbreaks enabling fast and informed decisions on safety measures.
What is it?
Where can I get it?
Answers and information have never been more important as we continue to navigate COVID-19. We're innovating our technology to bring accessible, reliable and easy testing options to you, when and where they're needed most.
In a time where it almost feels like we're moving backwards, self testing and reporting can provide the confidence and peace of mind we need.
