The ID NOW™ COVID-19 assay is now available for use on the ID NOW platform under U.S. Food and Drug Administration Emergency Use Authorization (EUA). Timely results enable healthcare professionals to make appropriate and more efficient treatment and infection control decisions. EUA supports flexible near patient testing environments. ID NOW™ is a leading molecular point-of-care platform in the United States, trusted by hospitals, physician offices, and urgent care clinics nationwide.

In the fight against COVID-19, having multiple tests for different settings and stages of a person’s infection is key, from high-volume laboratory capabilities to fast solutions that give results on the spot, from tests that detect the active virus to tests that detect antibodies in people who were previously infected. The portable, rapid molecular ID NOW COVID-19 test has emerged as a critical part of this arsenal, allowing fast diagnosis — with results in 13 minutes or less — in a variety of locations such as physicians’ offices, urgent care clinics and other point-of-care locations.
