A New Algorithm for Sustainable Testing Capacity in Response to a Pandemic

A peer-reviewed article just published in the Annals of Medicine titled “Multi-tiered screening and diagnosis strategy for COVID-19: a model for sustainable testing capacity in response to pandemic” describes an algorithm for sustainable testing capacity to efficiently evaluate patients in response to a pandemic.

The multi-tiered, diagnostic strategy incorporates a rapid host immune response assay (such as FebriDx®) as a screening test, molecular confirmatory testing, and rapid IgM/IgG testing (such as COV-ID™) to assess benefit from quarantine/further testing and provide information on population exposure/herd immunity.
