BinaxNOW COVID-19 Self Test and NAVICA App By Abbott

BinaxNOW COVID-19 Self Test and NAVICA App By Abbott

The BinaxNOW COVID-19 Self Test can quickly detect when people are at risk of spreading COVID-19 in the comfort of their home. It’s the first portable test that delivers results in 15 minutes with no equipment and is authorized for over-the-counter, serial asymptomatic testing. As the most widely used and studied rapid COVID-19 test in the U.S., BinaxNOW has been used by communities, schools and employers to minimize spread. By making this test available in U.S. retailers, we’re making self-testing more available – enabling people to re-enter society by going to school, work or getting together with family or friends.

BinaxNOW COVID-19 Self Test

1. How do I test myself or someone else?

  • Using the BinaxNOW Self Test is simple, even if you have never tested yourself before. You simply will perform a lower nostril nasal swab (not the deeper nasopharyngeal swab) and everything you need (swab, test card and reagent solution) is included in the box. Each test kit comes with an illustrated quick reference guide to walk you through the process step by step.

2. Who should use this test?

  • The test is indicated for all people aged 15 years or older and for children as young as 2 years old when samples are collected by an adult. The test can be used for people with and without symptoms.

3. Should people who were vaccinated use this test?

  • Testing will remain an essential part of our short- and long-term COVID-19 recovery strategy. The BinaxNOW Self Test will be a key tool alongside vaccination as we get back to life. We don't yet know how long vaccines confer immunity and how variants will evolve.

4. How will people report their test results?

  • People are encouraged to follow the latest CDC guidelines, which is to communicate your results to your healthcare provider, who is responsible for reporting your test results to the state health department.

5. How many tests come in a package?

  • There are two tests (as well as two swabs and reagents) in each box.

6. How long should people wait between taking BinaxNOW Self Tests?

  • The tests should be administered twice over three days with at least 36 hours between tests.

7. Can the BinaxNOW Self Test be thrown into the garbage after use?

  • You can recycle the box, but should dispose of the test card, nasal swab and test solution in common household waste, in line with the test's instructions for use.

8. How do I know if I have a positive or negative test?

  • To check for a positive result, look at the result window for two pink or purple lines. Even a faint line next to the word "sample" on the test card is a positive result. A negative result will have only one pink or purple line on the top half of the results window where it says "control."

9. What if my test result is invalid?

  • If your results window has any of the following, the test result may be invalid:
  •  No lines appear by control or sample
  • The control line is blue and not pink/purple
  • There is a pink/purple line by sample, but no line by control
  • The control line is blue, but the sample is pink/purple

The app pairs with Abbott's new COVID-19 antigen test to help facilitate easier access to organizations and other locations where people gather.

1. What is the NAVICA App?

  • This is a new app that Abbott designed to pair with our BinaxNOW rapid antigen test for COVID-19. The app works on iPhone and Android devices and allows people to store, access and display their BinaxNOW test results so we can more confidently return to life.

2. How Does the App Work?

  • When you get Abbott's BinaxNOW test at a NAVICA-enabled test center, the results can be displayed on your NAVICA app. These results are encrypted and available only to you and those whom you choose to share them with.
  • If you test negative, the app will display a temporary encrypted digital pass with a QR code, similar to an airline boarding pass. The pass will be renewed each time a person takes a new test and receives a negative test result and will include the date of the latest test result. Organizations will be able to view and verify the information on a mobile device to facilitate entry into facilities along with hand-washing, social distancing, enhanced cleaning and mask-wearing. If you test positive, you'll receive a message in the app to quarantine and talk to your doctor.

3. What are the Key Benefits of the NAVICA App for Consumers?

  • It's all about helping restore a sense of normalcy. Helping people get back to doing the things they love with a little more confidence than they've had during the pandemic.
