(Joplin, MO) – NextGen Diagnostic Services, will now be offering NOWDiagnostics’ ADEXUSDx® COVID-19 antibody test, a rapid-results self-contained fingerstick test at our Joplin, Missouri NextGen Diagnostic Services testing sites.
The ADEXUSDx® test offers a fast and easy way to check for COVID-19 antibodies. The ADEXUSDx® COVID19 antibody test detects antibodies to a portion of the spike protein S1 of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. These antibodies are the most protective and are induced by vaccination, offering both vaccinated individuals an accurate way to test for antibodies even if they have not had a previous COVID-19 infection.
The test detects results in only 15 minutes and results will be reported via the Missouri Department of
Health. NOWDiagnostics’ advanced technology allows for easy use, and the self-contained fingerstick
provides a safe and virtually painless way to gather a sample.
In May 2021, NOWDiagnostics announced receipt of Emergency Use Authorization from the Food and
Drug Administration (FDA) for the ADEXUSDx® COVID-19 Test’s use in moderate complex settings and at the point of care. The Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) provided
funding and technical support to NOWDiagnostics for the development of the ADEXUSDx® COVID-19 Test. Trials for over-the-counter use are ongoing.
