Roche’s At-Home COVID-19 Rapid Test Cleared in Europe

June 9, 2021

Roche has received CE mark certification for its SARS-CoV-2 antigen nasal self-test for use by patients at home.

Patients can take the nasal swab test without any special training and get results in 15 minutes showing whether they are likely to be infectious.
