Medical Supply Company to Offer the Latest in Rapid Antigen Testing Technology Nationwide
South Yarmouth, MA – June 17, 2021 – Code 1 Supply, a leading distributor of best-in-class medical diagnostics, brand-name supplies and equipment and provider of CPR training equipment and student materials, has been named distributor of an innovative new point-of-care COVID-19 test, the SCoV-2 Ag Detect™ Rapid Test from InBios International, Inc.
The SCoV-2 Ag Detect™ Rapid Test is a patent-pending lateral flow immunoassay intended for the qualitative detection of SARS-CoV-2 nucleoprotein antigen in direct nasal swab specimens. The point-of-care test can be used to evaluate both symptomatic and asymptomatic individuals. The test can be used for those who are suspected of COVID-19 by their healthcare provider within five days of symptom onset or for individuals without symptoms or other epidemiological reasons to suspect COVID-19 when tested twice over two or three days with at least 24 hours and no more than 48 hours between tests. The kit contains 50 tests and swabs, positive and negative controls and can be stored at room temperature.
“As more Americans receive their COVID-19 vaccine, we are seeing a return to normalcy, which must still be supported by testing,” said Matt Regan, CEO at Code 1 Supply. “We are proud to partner with InBios to supply the SCoV-2 Ag Detect™ Rapid Test nationwide to quickly and easily detect proteins from COVID-19 infection.”
