Analysis does not require a proprietary system and can be run on some of the most common PCR processing solutions, such as Bio-Rad’s CFX96 Dx system and Thermo Fisher Scientific’s Applied Biosystems 7500 or 7500 Fast RT-PCR instrument. Additional information surrounding instructions for use with each system can be found at https://carestart.com/.

      “The novel coronavirus is showing no sign of slowing in the United States or other parts of the world, making the ability to quickly scale testing and diagnosis a priority,” said Young H. Choi, President and CEO, Access Bio. “Our products are manufactured wholly in the United States and are used by the world's largest global health and humanitarian response organizations. We’ve worked to ensure the CareStart’s accuracy and reliability will make it a leading diagnostic testing solution in a market plagued by false methodologies and subpar alternatives.”
      The CareStart™ COVID-19 MDx RT-PCR test is designed for use on SARS-CoV-2 nucleic acid that has been extracted, isolated and purified from nasopharyngeal or oropharyngeal swab specimens. The purified nucleic acid is then reverse transcribed into cDNA followed by PCR amplification and detection using an authorized realtime (RT) PCR instrument. The CareStart™ COVID-19 MDx RT-PCR test includes: 4x1 Step RT-PCR Mix, SARS-CoV-2 primer/probe Mix, MS2 Phage Control, External Positive Control, and External Negative Control.

      Access Bio’s CareStart™ RT-PCR test is the first in the company’s CareStart line to be granted Emergency Use Authorization by the FDA, with an IgM/IgG antibody kit also currently under evaluation for FDA EUA. Upon receiving validation, the CareStart™ COVID-19 IgM/IgG Rapid Diagnostic Test will be distributed in partnership with Intrivo Diagnostics, which will act as a resource for qualified buyers -- providers & healthcare professionals, payers and patients -- to purchase the point-of-care antibody kits.

      “The availability of the CareStart™ COVID-19 MDx RT-PCR brings needed Covid-19 viral diagnostic testing to millions of patients across the U.S. and world during the current pandemic,” said Michael Harbour, MD, MPH, Chief Medical Officer, Intrivo Diagnostics. “These high-quality tests are manufactured in the U.S. by Access Bio, a company with a long history of engineering and manufacturing superior quality diagnostic kits for malaria, dengue, typhus and other infectious diseases."

      About Intrivo Diagnostics:
      Headquartered in Los Angeles, CA, Intrivo Diagnostics is an organization driven by science and dedicated to providing sophisticated and accurate diagnostic testing to save lives and slow the spread of infectious diseases. Intrivo Diagnostics’ mission is to distribute exceptional products to address the urgent demand for high-quality diagnostic testing. In keeping with that mission, Intrivo Diagnostic is the exclusive distribution partner for Access Bio, Inc.’s CareStart™ line of COVID-19 testing products, all of which are solely manufactured in the USA.

      Reliable Testing is Crucial

      In March 2020, the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 (the disease caused by SARS-CoV-2 or the novel coronavirus) a pandemic. All of the leading global public health organizations agree that large-scale testing is essential to controlling the spread. Even after the development of a vaccine, we will still need to be able to test at high volumes to protect the public health. 

      Because COVID-19 spread so rapidly in such a short time, many nations were not adequately prepared and were challenged to develop effective testing. In the United States, this shortage was exacerbated by a lack of oversite at the federal level: out of desperation to get tests out into the environment, the FDA allowed many unvetted, poor quality, or defective tests to flood the market. It is unknown how many of these tests have been used, but it is likely that they have contributed to the difficulty in getting the pandemic under control in the United States. 

      Part of the answer lies with being able to access a variety of high-quality diagnostics tests that allow professionals to test not only for current exposure to the various, but if the person being tested has been exposed to SARS-CoV-2 and has developed antibodies. To help meet this challenge, Intrivo has partnered with global in vitro diagnostics leader Access Bio. With headquarters in New Jersey and a strong state-side supply chain, Access Bio has the capacity to produce more than 1.2 million tests a day. 

       

      We’re Partnering with Access Bio

      We are the exclusive U.S. distributor of Access Bio’s COVID-19 PCR test, which was just granted Emergency Authorization Use by the FDA. 

      In a time of great uncertainty, when even some of the world’s most trusted health institutes lacked a unified understanding of transmission and containment principles of COVID-19, there has never been a greater need for leadership from the scientific community.  

      Infectious disease experts Dr. Carol Brosgart, MD, and Dr. Michael Harbor, MD, recognized this incredible need when they founded Intrivo Diagnostics. As public health experts, they were frustrated by what they perceived as a piecemeal response to the pandemic, with poor communication between federal and local agencies. And as humanitarians, they felt a true calling to use their resources to make a difference.   

      Powered by decades of expertise in epidemiology and public health, Intrivo searches out diagnostic solutions for some of the world’s most pressing health challenges. From the very beginning, they understood that the COVID-19 pandemic required a different approach to supplying healthcare systems and public health agencies with testing supplies: one that emphasizes innovation, agility, and responsiveness. This led them to Access Bio, a global health leader in in vitro diagnostics, headquartered in the United States.  

      Access Bio is most well-known for its work with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to combat malaria, and the company was one of the forerunners in launching COVID-19 testing on a global scale. Access Bio’s PCR test, CareStart™ MDx RT-PCR, received its CE mark in March and just earned Emergency Use Authorization from the FDA. Intrivo is the exclusive U.S. distributor for CareStart™ MDx RT-PCR, available now and shipping immediately.
