Code 1 Supply Providing COVID-19 and Influenza Combination Testing Kits per CDC
Recommendation Leading Medical Supply Company Stocking LifeSign Status™ COVID-19 Flu A&B Rapid Tests
SOUTH YARMOUTH, MA – July 27, 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, is responding to the Centers For Disease Control’s (CDC) call for laboratories to consider adopting a multiplexed method that can facilitate detection and differentiation of SARS-CoV-2 and influenza viruses by offering the LifeSign Status™ COVID-19 Flu A&B rapid combo test to laboratories and medical offices as flu season approaches.
The LifeSign Status™ COVID-19 Flu A&B rapid test is a qualitative assay for the simultaneous detection of influenza A&B antigen and SARS CoV-2 antigen from nasopharyngeal swabs obtained from patients with respiratory symptoms. The LifeSign Status™ COVID-19 Flu A&B rapid test is the only EUA authorized visual-read COVID-19/Flu rapid combo test on the market. Such assays can facilitate continued testing for both influenza and SARS-CoV-2 and can save both time and resources as testing for both viruses increases.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has led to many scientific innovations that continue to help detect and monitor the virus in our communities, said Matt Regan, CEO at Code 1 Supply. “As we get closer to flu season, it’s important for doctor’s offices, clinics, and laboratories to prepare for an influx in testing that the CDC expects for both COVID-19 and influenza. Offering combination tests to authorized purchasers helps cut down on the number of tests being ordered and allows providers to test more patients in a timely manner.”
The LifeSign Status™ COVID-19 Flu A&B rapid test is available now for purchase through Code 1 Supply. Representing the most trusted and respected manufacturers of medical diagnostics, supplies, and equipment, Code 1 Supply offers next-day shipping for all orders and free shipping on orders over $750.
