Intrivo has launched a new at-home rapid Covid-19 antigen self-test, On/Go, that provides 95% accurate results in ten minutes through an artificial intelligence (AI)-powered mobile app.

The portable, affordable, over-the-counter and self-administered rapid antigen test is capable of detecting all known Covid-19 variants.

The new Intrivo test has secured emergency use authorization (EUA) from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

The easy-to-use self-test is paired with a mobile application that provides a step-by-step process guide for users to complete the test.

Individuals aged 14 years and above can use the new test for self-testing without a prescription. It is also authorised for use with samples collected by adults from children aged two years or above.

Manufactured in the US, Intrivo’s On/Go offers an AI-powered platform that integrates the rapid test results and offers a real-time solution for population managers to reduce costly shutdowns.

The mobile app has a secure digital passport which includes the current test results, as well as the vaccine records of the user. This will help individuals with gaining access to restaurants, businesses, live events, travel and more.

Intrivo co-CEO Ron Gutman said: “To make our new platform readily available for population managers, we also offer an attractive new business model called DaaS (Diagnostics as a Service).

“Intrivo’s DaaS package makes it easier to automatically administer tests directly, effortlessly identify and track pandemic outbreaks, and seamlessly manage them in real time with highly targeted and personalised interventions.”

The US Department of Defense has awarded a contract to the company to supply its new self-test kits to more than 25,000 locations across the country.

The kits will be distributed to vulnerable populations at nursing homes, homeless shelters, military bases, National Guard sites and community testing sites.
