Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update: FDA Authorizes First Point-of-Care Antibody Test for COVID-19
- For Immediate Release:
Today, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued an emergency use authorization (EUA) for the first serology (antibody) point-of-care (POC) test for COVID-19. The Assure COVID-19 IgG/IgM Rapid Test Device was first authorized for emergency use by certain labs in July 2020 to help identify individuals with antibodies to SARS-CoV-2, indicating recent or prior COVID-19 infection. Today, that EUA is being reissued to authorize the test for POC use using fingerstick blood samples. This authorization means that fingerstick blood samples can now be tested in POC settings like doctor’s offices, hospitals, urgent care centers and emergency rooms rather than having to be sent to a central lab for testing.
The COVID-19 IgG/IgM Rapid Test Device is an in vitro immunoassay for the direct and qualitative detection of anti-SARS-CoV-2 lgM and anti-SARS-Cov-IgG in human whole blood, serum or plasma. The test is for professional use only.
