The initial design was rapidly completed using the Company's proprietary Co-Dx™ Design platform. After being the first US-based company to receive a CE-IVD marking for a COVID-19 test, followed by an Emergency Use Authorization by the FDA, the Company has gone on to sell more than 33 million of its Co-Dx Logix Smart™ COVID-19 Test, in addition to other tests that have since been added to the Company's suite of COVID-19 diagnostics. Notwithstanding three years of mutations and new variants, the initial design has never required any revisions.
Egan added, "Further, we anticipated the healthcare industry's move to the home and have developed the Co-Dx PCR Home™ Testing Platform, including a portable next-generation PCR device, test cups and a mobile app. Currently in pre-clinical evaluations in preparation for clinical evaluations to begin soon, the platform was designed to bring PCR technology out of the lab and into offices, to schools, assisted living facilities, point-of-care, and to homes, giving individuals and families the power to know, as Co-Dx fully realizes our vision of making the highest quality diagnostics affordable, easy to use, and readily available to anyone."
Simultaneously, the company has a growing pipeline of PCR diagnostics and testing products for its existing centralized laboratory business segment, including tests for STIs, upper respiratory infections, and other diseases.
The Co-Dx PCR Home platform is subject to FDA review and is not currently for sale.
