Are You Ready for the Next Wave of Covid-19 Infections in Your…


Next Wave Of Covid-19

The next wave of COVID-19 is here. Our best defense until vaccines are widely available is masking, distancing, and serial testing, coupled with contact tracing and isolation of infected individuals.

With RT-PCR tests unable to meet demand, antigen tests can be used in high-risk settings, such as nursing homes, hospitals, universities and others group settings where repeat testing, coupled with relevant clinical information, could identify those with a SARS-CoV-2 infection to minimize transmission.

 
"Affordable antigen testing is battle tested and has the ability to turn a laboratory into a well-rounded partner for our providers and patients."

The Problem With Point-Of-Care Antigen Tests

  • While POC antigen tests can be an aid in diagnosing COVID-19 in an individual care setting, they are more difficult and resource-intensive to scale to address high-volume testing.iii

  • The same test used to deliver a result within 15 minutes to a single individual cannot perform as efficiently when it’s asked to provide results for 100 or 1,000 individuals; the workflow breaks down due to too many manual steps in the process.
  • Furthermore, hospitals are required to report results to the regulatory bodies, and POC tests require them to manually record patient data into their EMR or by some other manual process.

  • POC antigen tests can on average cost $20-30, and this cost can add up when testing frequently and scaling to hundreds of millions of testsiv.

The Solution With Beckman Coulter’s Antigen Test

  • We know there aren’t enough COVID-19 diagnostic tests available for serial testing, and this is why Beckman Coulter is set to deliver 25 million tests a month to support the demand to ensure you can help your community with serial testing.

  • Beckman Coulter is one of the first manufacturers on the market with an automated antigen test that addresses the challenges associated with scaling high-volume antigen testing to make serial testing possible 
  • Our analyzers will be able to deliver 50, 100, or 200 tests per hour—throughput required for high-volume testing
  •  Workflow is shifted to the lab where the resources to handle high test volumes already exist and the reporting of COVID-19 test results is automated

  • The Beckman Coulter antigen test is priced at $4 per test
