PHASE Scientific International LTD has announced that its INDICAID™ COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Test has received authorisation from the Health Sciences Authority of Singapore, which can make it available for use by individual citizens in the city as a self-testing tool for rapid detection of SARS-CoV-2 antigens.

INDICAID™ is a lateral flow immunoassay designed for the qualitative detection of SARS-CoV-2 antigens in direct nasal swab samples. It has been validated in the world's largest clinical trial for a product of its kind with over 22,000 samples from the community in Hong Kong that were asymptomatic. The results demonstrated that INDICAID™ had excellent sensitivity and specificity and was a high-performing product for fast and effective SARS-CoV-2 screening.

INDICAID™ is developed in Hong Kong and is the first antigen rapid test product in the Greater China region to have obtained the US Food and Drug Administration Emergency Use Authorization. It is easy-to-use with no special equipment or facilities needed and the result is available within as fast as 20 minutes. The product is used globally for regular SARS-CoV-2 screening to meet various emergency testing requirements. To date, sales have been made to 30 countries with over 20 million kits sold.
