NxGen MDx Announces the Launch and Availability of Their COVID-19 Test

To combat the lack of availability of tests, NxGen MDx announces the immediate launch and availability of their COVID-19 test.

The rise in U.S. cases of COVID-19, a highly contagious and sometimes fatal respiratory illness, has concerned health officials and spurred calls from lawmakers for action to expand testing capacity to slow its spread.

"Like the CDC-built kits, ours will be conducted on QuantStudio qPCR instrumentation and will be able to process 2000 samples per day with tests being resulted in 24-48 hours," said Dr. Jacqueline Peacock, Director of Laboratory Operations.

The test will help meet a major U.S. shortfall of diagnostic capabilities that has severely limited the nation's ability to track the spread of the outbreak.

"COVID-19 is a global challenge and we are committed to providing people on the frontlines of this pandemic with critical tests to help ensure proper care," said Alan Mack, CEO of NxGen MDx.

To ensure providers can give their patients the most comprehensive diagnostic results, NxGen MDx is also working to validate a 40+ respiratory pathogen panel to identify the cause of respiratory symptoms in a single test. This test is slated for launch in July 2020.
