The BinaxNOW COVID-19 Ag Card is a proven and trusted COVID-19 nasal swab antigen test that gives an accurate visual result in 15 minutes. The BinaxNOW COVID-19 Ag Card is an immunochromatographic membrane assay that uses highly sensitive antibodies to detect SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid protein from nasal swab specimens via point of care. SARS-CoV-2 specific antibodies and a control antibody are immobilized onto a membrane support as two distinct lines and combined with other reagents/pads to construct a test strip.
To perform the test, a nasal swab specimen is collected from the patient, 6 drops of extraction reagent from a dropper bottle are added to the top hole of the swab well. The patient sample is inserted into the test card through the bottom hole of the swab well, and firmly pushed upwards until the swab tip is visible through the top hole. The swab is rotated 3 times clockwise and the card is closed, bringing the extracted sample into contact with the test strip. Test results are interpreted visually at 15 minutes based on the presence or absence of visually detectable pink/purple colored lines. Results should not be read after 30 minutes.

Clinical Performance Characteristics of Abbott BinaxNOW™ COVID-19 Ag Card:
Clinical performance characteristics of BinaxNOW™ COVID-19 Ag Card were evaluated in a multisite prospective study in the U.S in which patients were sequentially enrolled and tested. A total of ten (10) investigational sites throughout the U.S. participated in the study. Testing was performed by operators with no laboratory experience and who are representative of the intended users at CLIA waived testing sites. In this study, testing was conducted by sixty-two (62) intended users. To be enrolled in the study, patients had to be presenting at the participating study centers with suspected COVID-19. Patients who presented within 7 days of symptom onset were included in the initial primary analysis. Two nasal swabs were collected from patients and tested using the BinaxNOW™ COVID-19 Ag Card at all study sites. An FDA Emergency Use Authorized real-time
Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) assay for the detection of SARS-CoV-2 was utilized as the comparator method for this study.
At all sites, one nasal swab was tested directly in the BinaxNOW™ COVID-19 Ag Card test according to product instructions and the other swab was eluted in viral transport media (VTM).
Swabs were randomly assigned to testing with the BinaxNOW or RT-PCR testing and were tested by minimally trained operators who were blinded to the RT-PCR test result. All sites shipped the VTM sample to a central testing laboratory for RT-PCR.
External control testing, using BinaxNOW™ COVID-19 Ag Card Positive and Negative Controls, was performed prior to sample testing each day, at all study sites.
The performance of BinaxNOW™ COVID-19 Ag Card was established with 460 nasal swabs collected from individual symptomatic patients (within 7 days of onset) who were suspected of COVID-19.
