Covid-19 diagnostic tests from Los Angeles-based DxTerity Diagnostics are now available for sale to US businesses and customers at home from Amazon.com. The self-administered, noninvasive saliva kits are FDA authorized for use by both individuals with and without symptoms of covid-19. The tests are now available in individual and 10-pack kits.
Asymptomatic testing is essential in limiting viral spread because a person can have covid-19 without exhibiting any symptoms of the illness. The test detects the presence of viral genetic material but will not confirm immunity or detect antibodies.
“We have demonstrated the reliability and quality of our covid-19 testing solution with big business and now we want to expand access to customers at home and small businesses,” says Bob Terbrueggen, PhD, founder and CEO of DxTerity. “Amazon is the perfect partner for expanding access to millions of US customers.”
Single test kits are available for $110 and 10-pack kits are available for $1,000 from Amazon. Testing does not require supervised sample collection, and prescription authorization is included as part of test registration. The price includes prepaid overnight return shipment and testing in DxTerity’s CLIA-licensed and accredited laboratory.
