OraSure says rapid COVID-19 test should be ready by 4Q

The OraQuick Coronavirus Rapid Antigen Self-Test is a potential game-changer, said Steven Tang, president and CEO of OraSure. The at-home test quickly detects active COVID-19 infection at the point of sample collection with no instrumentation needed to interpret results, and no need to transport samples to a lab for analysis. Users swab their lower nostril to collect the sample and read their results a short time later.

Tang said OraSure’s COVID-19 antigen self-test could become a valuable tool for opening up economies, keeping them open, and enabling the safe return to work, school,and group events. Via Lehigh Valley Business
