EMERYVILLE, Calif, May 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Nanomix Corporation (OTCBB: NNMX) (“Nanomix” or the “Company”), a leader in the development of mobile, affordable, point-of-care diagnostics, today announced that it has received the CE mark for its eLab COVID-19 rapid antigen test. The COVID-19 antigen test cartridge is used with the Nanomix eLab® Analyzer to provide qualitative results in 15 minutes from an anterior nasal swab.
“Receiving the CE mark for our COVID-19 rapid antigen test is a key milestone which further validates our rapid and accurate point-of-care (POC) testing technology,” stated John Hardesky, Chief Commercial Officer of Nanomix. “This assay complements our S1 Critical Infection Panel which provides valuable insight to clinicians as they diagnose and monitor severe, co-infections including those of COVID-19 patients.”
“Development of our COVID-19 rapid antigen test is a testament to the hard work of our R&D team and the quality of our technology,” stated David Ludvigson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Nanomix. “The Nanomix eLab® is a comprehensive diagnostic platform that has enormous potential in time-sensitive diagnostic applications.”
The Nanomix COVID-19 rapid antigen test provides qualitative detection of nucleocapsid antigen from SARS-CoV-2 in nasal (anterior nares) swabs. Nasal swab samples are collected using a provided swab and sample collection tube, and then transferred to the single-use, microfluidic cartridge. The cartridge is run on the Nanomix eLab® Analyzer with results displayed in 15 minutes and the ability to print or send results electronically via Bluetooth. Additionally, the eLab system can publish Nanomix eLab® COVID-19 rapid antigen test results output as a QR code for privacy.
