Abbott’s OTC COVID-19 Self-Test Gains CE Mark
Abbott has received CE mark certification for its Panbio over-the-counter COVID-19 antigen test for individuals with or without symptoms, including young children.
The Panbio test analyzes minimally invasive nasal swab samples that can be self-collected or can safely be used by adults to take nasal samples from infants, the company said. Test results are available in 15 minutes.
The test kit was previously approved in Europe for self-collection under the supervision of a healthcare specialist.
