Amazon selling COVID-19 test by DxTerity

Online retailer Amazon is now selling at-home COVID-19 tests as cases rise across the nation and Arizona, the state now ranked as the highest for new cases in the United States.

The saliva-based test, produced by DxTerity, is self-administered and has been authorized by the Food and Drug Administration for people who are symptomatic or asymptomatic.

The test was authorized under an emergency use authorization. So far, no home-based COVID-19 tests have been FDA-approved.

“Asymptomatic testing is essential in limiting viral spread because a person can have COVID-19 without exhibiting any symptoms of the illness,” according to a Jan. 5 news release by DxTerity.

The test is designed to detect viral genetic material, but it does not test for COVID-19 immunity or detect antibodies.

The kits can be purchased individually for $110 or in a 10-pack for $1,000 and are now available on Amazon.
