At-home test by Phosphorus will reduce commute to testing centers and help companies conduct tests for their employees.
BOSTON, July 2, 2020 (Newswire.com) — Care Access Research, the leader in rapid development and management of high-performing clinical research sites, announced that its validation study of a saliva-based COVID-19 at-home viral test for Phosphorus was granted Emergency Use Authorization by the FDA.
Care Access Research owns more than 40 research sites around the US with a focus on quality data, rigorous research processes, and clinical trials as a care option for patients. More than 180 Sponsors and CROs rely on Care Access Research for trial management and reliable results.
Phosphorus, a leading genomics firm headquartered in New York City, partnered with Care Access Research for validation study of COVID-19 at-home saliva test.
“Testing for COVID-19 is a very important part of getting life back to normal,” said Ahmad Namvargolian CEO of Care Access Research. “We were excited to partner with Phosphorus and provide our expertise in clinical trial studies, and very excited that FDA authorized this test.”
Consumers can submit their request for the testing kit online. After the request is approved and validated by a physician, a sample collection kit will be shipped to the consumer’s home with easy-to-follow instructions.
“This specific trial was very important as home testing kits help to get as many people tested and can detect early cases of COVID,” said Dr. Ruby Hussain, Care Access Research Investigator. “I strongly believe the key to fighting this is early detection and testing as many patients as possible.”
“COVID testing is essential to getting life back to normal. This test will allow people from coast to coast to be tested from the safety of their homes with the oversight of medical personnel,” said Alexander Bisignano, co-founder and CEO of Phosphorus. “We thank the FDA for their hard work throughout this crisis and the quick action they have taken. We look forward to helping the country re-open.”
The details of this study is now under journal review and available in pre-print.
