The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) to Abbott for its COVID-19 Ag Card rapid test for the detection of coronavirus infection. Abbott testing kit is portable and provides results in 15 minutes. The test is just about the size of a credit card and will cost about $5 per test.
Abbott will also launch the first-of-its-kind mobile app for iPhone and Android devices named NAVICA™. This app will display the date of the test and the result will act as a digital health pass. Organizations can view and verify employee information online and facilitate employee entry into the workplace.
