Consumer diagnostics platform company Sapphiros has signed a Covid-19 test distribution agreement with Cencora, which was formerly known as AmerisourceBergen Corporation.

Under the deal, Cencora will be responsible for distributing the Sapphiros’s GoToKnow Covid-19 Antigen Rapid Tests to pharmacies in the US.

Sapphiros expects the strategic partnership to improve accessibility and convenience for patients looking to purchase reliable Covid-19 testing solutions.

Authorised by the US Food and Drug Administration only for the detection of proteins from SARS-CoV-2, the GoToKnow rapid antigen test is developed to allow users to take tests at home.

It provides results in 15 minutes for the identification of the SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid protein antigen.

During the acute infection phase, this antigen is generally detectable in anterior nasal swab specimens.
