A new FDA-authorized COVID-19 test doesn’t need a lab & can produce results in just 5 minutes


There’s a new COVID-19 test from Abbott that looks to be the fastest yet in terms of producing results, and that can do so on the spot right at point-of-care, without requiring a round trip to a lab. Has received emergency clearance for use by the U.S. FDA & will begin production next week, with output of 50,000 per day possible starting next week. Abbott ID NOW is essentially a lab-in-a-box that can produce either a positive result in 5 mins or a negative one in under 15 mins, could be very useful to extend coronavirus testing to more places including clinics & doctor’s offices
