GARDEN GROVE, Calif., March 23, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — PHASE Scientific International, LTD (PHASE Scientific), a high-growth biotech company founded by bioengineers from UCLA, announces that its INDICAID® COVID-19 Rapid Antigen At-Home Test (INDICAID® OTC) received Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on March 16, 2022. The FDA authorized the test for non-prescription home use in the U.S.
The INDICAID® COVID-19 Rapid Antigen At-Home Test is authorized for non-prescription home use with self-collected shallow nasal samples from individuals aged 14 years or older, or adult-collected nasal samples from individuals aged 2 years or older, with or without symptoms or other epidemiological reasons to suspect COVID-19 when tested twice over three days with at least 24 hours (and no more than 48 hours) between tests.
The performance of INDICAID® for professional use was published in a peer-reviewed article in the American Society for Microbiology’s journal, Microbiology Spectrum. The piece shares data from a prospective multi-site U.S. clinical study, in which INDICAID® demonstrated strong performance, accurately identifying 85% of those who were positive (PPA) and 97% of those who were negative (NPA) for SARS-CoV-2 with self- collected specimens.
“The professional version of INDICAID® has been widely adopted and utilized in the U.S. to meet a variety of emergency testing needs.
