Research shows that the BinaxNOW home test is highly sensitive at detecting COVID-19 infection in both asymptomatic and symptomatic people, and in children. However, if you test positive or test negative but have symptoms of COVID-19 it is recommended that you get an PCR test to confirm your results.
The BinaxNOW test is newly available directly to consumers, but it has a track record of accuracy and reliability. The professional version of the test launched last August and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services acquired 150 million tests for use in schools and nursing homes and in public health settings. Those tests have played a crucial role in controlling the COVID-19 pandemic and now Nurx is making them available to you, so you can quickly and easily test at home.
