Emergency Use Authorization

Skip to list of current EUAs

Emergency Use Authorization, with Emergency sign

The Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) authority allows FDA to help strengthen the nation’s public health protections against CBRN threats by facilitating the availability and use of MCMs needed during public health emergencies. 

Under section 564 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act), the FDA Commissioner may allow unapproved medical products or unapproved uses of approved medical products to be used in an emergency to diagnose, treat, or prevent serious or life-threatening diseases or conditions caused by CBRN threat agents when there are no adequate, approved, and available alternatives.

Section 564 of the FD&C Act was amended by the Project Bioshield Act of 2004 and the Pandemic and All-Hazards Preparedness Reauthorization Act of 2013 (PAHPRA), which was enacted in March 2013

* FDA reissued the August 5, 2014, EUA in its entirety (that is, a new EUA was issued to replace the Aug. 5 EUA) on October 10, 2014, to address an amendment to the August 5 EUA requested by DoD. The amendment expands the types of specimens that can be tested using the DoD EZ1 Real-time RT-PCR Assay—while the August 5 EUA allowed for Trizol-inactivated whole blood or Trizol-inactivated plasma to be used with the assay, the October 10 EUA allows for whole blood, plasma, Trizol-inactivated whole blood, or Trizol-inactivated plasma specimens to be tested. The August 5 letter of authorization, fact sheets, and instructions for use have all been reissued to reflect the DoD specimen amendment (updated versions are included in the table above).

On October 10, 2014 FDA authorized emergency use of two Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) diagnostic tests to detect the Ebola Zaire virus in individuals in affected areas with signs and symptoms of Ebola virus infection and/or epidemiological risk factors. The CDC Ebola Virus NP Real-time RT-PCR Assay and the CDC Ebola Virus VP40 Real-time RT-PCR Assay can test for the virus in whole blood, serum, and plasma specimens, and can also be used with urine specimens when tested in conjunction with whole blood, serum, or plasma from the same patient. Use of these tests is limited to qualified laboratories designated by the CDC. (Federal Register noticemore

In response to CDC’s request to amend these EUAs, on March 2, 2015, FDA reissued the October 10, 2014 EUAs in their entirety with the CDC-requested amendment incorporated. The amendments authorize use of the CDC Ebola Virus NP Real-time RT-PCR Assay and the CDC Ebola Virus VP40 Real-time RT-PCR Assay with the BioRad CFX96 Touch Real-Time PCR instrument, in addition to the Applied Biosystems (ABI) 7500 Fast Dx Real-Time PCR instrument.  The Instructions for Use and Fact Sheets for Health Care Providers have also been updated to incorporate these amendments.  The amendments also allow the future use of “other authorized instruments”, of “other extraction methods” and of “other authorized specimen types” when requested by CDC and concurred with by FDA.

The BioFire Defense “FilmArray NGDS BT-E Assay” is for the presumptive detection of Ebola Zaire virus (detected in the West Africa outbreak in 2014) on the FilmArray Instrument using whole blood specimens from individuals with signs and symptoms of Ebola virus infection or who are at risk for exposure or may have been exposed to the Ebola Zaire virus (detected in the West Africa outbreak in 2014) in conjunction with epidemiological risk factors, by laboratories designated by the Department of Defense (DoD).

In response to BioFire Defense, LLC’s request to amend this EUA, on March 2, 2015, FDA reissued the October 25, 2014 EUA in its entirety with the BioFire Defense, LLC requested amendment incorporated. The amendments authorize use of plasma and serum specimens with the FilmArray NGDS BT-E Assay in addition to whole blood. The Instructions for Use and Fact Sheet for Health Care Providers have also been updated to incorporate this amendment.  The amendments also allow the future use of “other specimen types” when requested by BioFire Defense, LLC and concurred with by FDA.

The BioFire Defense “FilmArray Biothreat-E test” is for the presumptive detection of Ebola Zaire virus (detected in the West Africa outbreak in 2014) on the FilmArray Instrument in individuals with signs and symptoms of Ebola virus infection in conjunction with epidemiological risk factors, by laboratories certified under the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments of 1988 (CLIA), 42 U.S.C. §263a, to perform moderate complexity tests and by laboratories certified under CLIA to perform high complexity tests. The EUA for the FilmArray Biothreat-E test enables hospitals with laboratories that fit these characteristics to conduct a PCR test for Ebola in-house, without having to send the sample to an outside lab. Issuance of this EUA follows the August 5, 2014, issuance of the HHS Secretary’s declaration that circumstances exist to justify issuance of EUAs for Ebola diagnostics; the HHS declaration was based on the existing Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Material Threat Determination issued for Ebola virus in 2006.

On November 10, 2014 FDA issued an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) to authorize the emergency use of the RealStar® Ebolavirus RT-PCR Kit 1.0 to detect RNA from Ebola viruses [such as Zaire ebolavirus (including the Zaire ebolavirus strain detected in the West Africa outbreak 2014), Sudan ebolavirus, Tai Forest ebolavirus, Bundibugyo ebolavirus, and Reston ebolavirus] in EDTA plasma from individuals with signs and symptoms of Ebola virus infection in conjunction with epidemiological risk factors. This authorization is limited to the use of the authorized RealStar® Ebolavirus RT-PCR Kit 1.0 on only specified instruments by laboratories certified under the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments of 1988 (CLIA) to perform high complexity tests. The RealStar® Ebolavirus RT-PCR Kit 1.0 is marketed by altona Diagnostics GmbH, and does not distinguish between the different Ebola virus species or strains. This EUA provides another commercial Ebola diagnostic (in addition to the October 25, 2014 EUA for the BioFire Defense FilmArray Biothreat-E test). Note: Documents related to the November 10, 2014 EUA are now archived.

** In response to altona Diagnostics GmbH’s request to amend this EUA, on November 26, 2014 FDA reissued (PDF, 263 KB) the November 10, 2014 EUA in its entirety with the altona Diagnostics GmbH-requested amendments incorporated. The amendments allow, in addition to altona Diagnostics GmbH, distributors that are authorized by altona Diagnostics GmbH to distribute the RealStar® Ebolavirus RT-PCR Kit 1.0 with certain conditions applicable to such authorized distributor(s). Because this assay may be distributed outside the U.S., the amendments also allow the use of this assay under this EUA, with certain conditions, at non-U.S. laboratories that are similarly qualified as CLIA High Complexity Laboratories. The Instructions for Use (PDF, 634 KB) and Fact Sheet for Health Care Providers (PDF, 81 KB) have also been updated to incorporate these amendments.

On December 23, 2014, the FDA issued an EUA to authorize use of the LightMix® Ebola Zaire rRT-PCR Test for the presumptive detection of the Ebola Zaire virus in a preparation of whole blood from individuals with signs and symptoms of Ebola disease.  The test runs on only specified instruments by CLIA high complexity laboratories or similarly qualified non-U.S. laboratories.

On February 24, 2015, the FDA issued an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) to authorize the emergency use of the ReEBOV™ Antigen Rapid Test for the presumptive detection of Zaire Ebola virus (detected in the West Africa outbreak in 2014), Sudan Ebola virus, and Bundibugyo Ebola virus in fingerstick (capillary) whole blood, venous whole blood and plasma from individuals with signs and symptoms of Ebola virus infection in conjunction with epidemiological risk factors (including geographic locations with high prevalence of Ebola infection).  The authorized ReEBOV™ Antigen Rapid Test is intended for circumstances when use of a rapid Ebola virus test is determined to be more appropriate than use of an authorized Ebola virus nucleic acid test, which has been demonstrated to be more sensitive in detecting the Ebola Zaire virus.  The authorized ReEBOV™ Antigen Rapid Test is not intended for use for general Ebola virus infection screening, such as airport screening or contact tracing.  The ReEBOV™ Antigen Rapid Test is authorized for use in laboratories or facilities adequately equipped, trained, and capable of such testing (including treatment centers and public health clinics).  The ReEBOV™ Antigen Rapid Test does not distinguish between the different Ebola virus strains. Note: Documents related to the Feburary 24, 2015 EUA are now archived.

In response to Corgenix Inc.’s request to amend this EUA, on March 16, 2015 FDA reissued the February 24, 2015 EUA in its entirety with the Corgenix Inc. requested amendments incorporated.  The amendments allow, in addition to Corgenix Inc., distributors that are authorized by Corgenix Inc. to distribute the ReEBOV™ Antigen Rapid Test with certain conditions applicable to such authorized distributor(s).  The Instructions for Use (PDF, 474 KB) have also been updated to incorporate these amendments.

On March 23, 2015, FDA issued an EUA to authorize the emergency use of the Xpert® Ebola Assay for the presumptive detection of Ebola Zaire virus on the GeneXpert Instrument Systems in EDTA venous whole blood specimens from individuals with signs and symptoms of Ebola virus infection in conjunction with epidemiological risk factors. The Xpert® Ebola Assay should be performed in CLIA moderate and high complexity laboratories or in similarly qualified non-U.S. laboratories, by clinical laboratory personnel who have received specific training on the use of the Xpert® Ebola Assay on GeneXpert Instrument Systems.

On July 31, 2015, FDA issued an EUA to authorize the emergency use of the OraQuick® Ebola Rapid Antigen Test for the presumptive detection of Ebola Zaire virus in venipuncture whole blood or fingerstick whole blood specimens from individuals with signs and symptoms of Ebola virus infection in conjunction with epidemiological risk factors (including geographic locations with high prevalence of Ebola infection), by laboratories and facilities adequately equipped, trained, and capable of testing for Ebola infection (including treatment centers and public health clinics). The test may also detect antigens from Sudan Ebola virus and Bundibugyo Ebola virus; however, it does not distinguish between these different Ebola virus species. The OraQuick® Ebola Rapid Antigen Test is intended for circumstances when the use of a rapid Ebola virus test is determined to be more appropriate than the use of an authorized Ebola virus nucleic acid test, which has been demonstrated to be more sensitive in detecting the Ebola Zaire virus. The OraQuick® Ebola Rapid Antigen Test is not intended for use for general Ebola virus infection screening, such as airport screening or contact tracing of individuals without signs and symptoms of Ebola infection.

On March 4, 2016, FDA issued an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) to authorize the emergency use of the OraQuick® Ebola Rapid Antigen Test for the detection of Ebola Zaire virus in cadaveric oral fluid swab specimens from individuals with epidemiological risk factors for Ebola virus infection and suspected to have died of Ebola. The test is intended to aid in diagnosing Ebola Zaire virus infection as the cause of death in order to inform decisions on safe and dignified burial procedures to prevent transmission of Ebola virus in the community. The OraQuick® Ebola Rapid Antigen Test for use with cadaveric oral fluid is not intended for use with oral fluid specimens from living individuals.

On May 26, 2016, the FDA issued an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) to authorize the emergency use of the Idylla™ Ebola Virus Triage Test for the presumptive detection of Ebola Zaire virus (detected in the West Africa outbreak in 2014) on the Idylla™ Instrument System (Idylla™ System) in EDTA venous whole blood specimens from individuals with signs and symptoms of Ebola virus infection in conjunction with epidemiological risk factors. The Idylla™ Ebola Virus Triage Test should be performed by laboratories in CLIA moderate and high complexity laboratories in the U.S. or in similarly qualified non-U.S. laboratories, by clinical laboratory personnel who have received specific training on the use of the Idylla™ Ebola Virus Triage Test on the Idylla™ System.
