FDA approves Everlywell for first standalone COVID-19 at-home collection kit | Silicon Hills

Everlywell has received an emergency use authorization for their coronavirus at-home collection kit by the FDA. “The authorization of a COVID-19 at-home collection kit that can be used with multiple tests at multiple labs not only provides increased patient access to tests, but also protects others from potential exposure,” commented Jeffrey Shuren, M.D., J.D., director of the FDA’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health. Everlywell will send the testing kits to people who have passed an online screening test. The sample will then be collected and tested in a special laboratory designated for COVID-19 testing. They have previously stated that the collection kit would cost $135.
