PHASE Scientific Americas launches online store for COVID-19 home testing | Business


GARDEN GROVE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–April 25, 2022–

PHASE Scientific Americas (PHASE Scientific), a high-growth biotechnology company founded by UCLA bioengineers, announces that its EUA-approved INDICAID® COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Home Test (INDICAID® OTC) is now available for home use without a prescription in the United States through its new online Shop INDICAID ® store,

The INDICAID ® COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Home Test is authorized for home use without a prescription with self-collected shallow nasal specimens for persons 14 years of age or older, or nasal specimens collected by adults from persons aged 2 years or older, with or without symptoms or other epidemiological reasons to suspect COVID-19 when tested twice over three days with at least 24 hours (and no more than 48 hours) between tests.

The performance of INDICAID ® for professional use was published in a peer-reviewed article in the American Society for Microbiology journal, Microbiology Spectrum. The article shares data from a prospective multi-site clinical study in the United States, in which INDICAID® demonstrated strong performance, accurately identifying 85% of those who were positive (PPA) and 97% of those who were negative ( NPA) for SARS-CoV-2 with self-collected specimens. INDICAID® has also been confirmed to detect Omicron variants of COVID-19 based on an independent assessment by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) RADx Variant Task Force.

The professional version of INDICAID ® has been widely adopted and used for a variety of emergency testing needs in schools, mobile testing sites, urgent care networks and hospitals. “Shop INDICAID ® allows consumers and their families to experience the quality of our INDICAID ® COVID-19 Rapid Antigen test in the comfort of their own home – without a prescription or having to leave home to purchase it,” said Doug Field, Chief Revenue Officer of PHASE Scientific Americas. “We believe that proactive diagnostic testing at home – in concert with testing by health care providers at the point of care – is an essential element in the fight against the spread of COVID-19. The launch of Shop INDICAID ® is another step in our efforts to extend the adoption of testing to everyone’s daily life and further support our fight against the pandemic.
