Webinar: RADx Tech Accessible Tests Program - Best Practices

Since the Spring of 2022, RADx Tech has been working to make COVID-19 home tests more accessible (our previous webinar addressed these efforts). During this work, the team has also captured what we've learned (from knowledgeable evaluators, designers, SMEs and vendors in the field) in a best practices document. While a comprehensive document is anticipated this Spring, an early edition of these best practices, with insights so far, was published in December, with support from NIH, on the US Access Board website site. While it is based on COVID test development, we hope it will have future applications across the field of home test design.

RADx: Rapid Acceleration of Diagnostics

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Rapid Acceleration of Diagnostics (RADx®) initiative was formed to accelerate the development, validation, and commercialization of innovative point-of-care and home-based tests, as well as improvements to clinical laboratory tests, that can directly detect SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.
