Healthcare technology company Cue Health and Cardinal Health are partnering for the distribution of Cue’s professional use and over-the-counter COVID-19 tests.

Cue selected Cardinal Health—which serves nearly 90% of US hospitals and over 60,000 pharmacies—as one of its primary distributors due to its expertise in helping commercialize diagnostic technologies.

“Customers across the country trust Cardinal Health to deliver high-quality laboratory products, and Cue shares a goal with them of placing diagnostic information at the center of care,” says Ayub Khattak, co-founder and CEO of Cue. “We look forward to making Cue’s highly accurate, fast, and easy-to-use testing and access to real-time health information more widely available through our collaboration with Cardinal Health.”

Health professionals and other qualified point-of-care test users can now purchase the Cue Health Monitoring System, the Cue COVID-19 Test for CLIA Certified Healthcare Providers and Laboratories, and Cue COVID-19 Test Positive Control Swabs and Test Negative Control Swabs through Cardinal Health laboratory’s distribution network.

Additionally, the Cue COVID-19 Test for Home and Over The Counter (OTC) Use (OTC/Home) is also available through Cardinal Health. Cue’s molecular OTC/home test can be used on adults and children (2 years and over) with or without symptoms and is available for use at home or in other non-clinical settings without a prescription.

“Cue adds an important dimension to our suite of COVID-19 diagnostic solutions, further enhancing Cardinal Health’s comprehensive offering to meet our customers’ evolving testing needs,” says Chris Kerski, senior VP and general manager, Cardinal Health Laboratory Products. “Cue’s unique technology and platform combines molecular testing with speed and convenience, meeting the demands of health providers, employers, travelers, and others.”

Both the professional and the OTC/home products will be available in packs of 10 tests. The durable, rechargeable Cue Health Monitoring System (Reader) communicates test results to the user’s connected mobile smart device in 20 minutes through the Cue Health App, securely and conveniently.
