The program, which will provide supplies of rapid, at-home antigen tests, aims to determine if frequent self-testing can reduce community transmission of the virus.

Emerging technologies included biosensors, host response tests using different types of biomarkers, and new ways to make and develop antigen, antibody, and PCR tests.

Inflammatix said that if its test obtains Emergency Use Authorization next year, clinicians will be able to better gauge the severity of a COVID-19 patient's infection.

The money will be used to understand COVID-19 testing patterns in vulnerable populations and develop strategies to reduce testing disparities.

The new report said that point-of-care testing could rise to 70 million tests per month, or more, by October based on manufacturers' announced market entry plans.

The test is designed to detect circulating neutralizing antibodies against the virus without the need for live biological materials or biosafety containment.

The multiplex assay is designed to detect both the SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid protein from nasal swabs and patient-derived antibodies against the viral spike protein 1 from blood drops.

The seven-year grant renews funding for the Antibacterial Resistance Leadership Group, led by Duke University and UCSF, with $15 million in 2020.

The study reflects the importance of including multiple biomarkers for diagnostic and treatment decisions associated with pneumonia, IVD industry experts said.

Its most advanced gene expression signatures are for infectious disease diagnostics and are aimed at enabling the appropriate prescription of antiviral and antibiotic medications.
