In Vitro Diagnostics EUAs - Antigen Diagnostic Tests for SARS-CoV-2

Individual EUAs for Antigen Diagnostic Tests for SARS-CoV-2

This table includes information about authorized SARS-CoV-2 antigen diagnostic tests that have been authorized individually. These EUAs have been issued for each individual test with certain conditions of authorization required of the manufacturer and authorized laboratories. Test attributes are listed in the "Attributes" column. For example, tests authorized for the screening of asymptomatic individuals without known exposure are listed with "screening" in the attribute column; pooling, multi-analyte, saliva, home collection, and home testing are similarly listed. Tests available without a prescription include the attribute "DTC" (for direct-to-consumer home collection tests) or "OTC" (for over-the-counter at-home tests).
