Frequently asked questions
When does my test expire?
The above image shows an example of the expiration date sticker on the BinaxNOW Home Test, indicating the original expiration date. The test has been approved for use for an additional 3 months from this original expiration date. In the example above, the test's original expiration date is November 8, 2021. This test is authorized for use until February 8, 2022. Please review the letter issued by the FDA here for more information: https://eMed.com/FDA
When testing, an eMed Certified Guide will request to see the expiration date sticker before you open your box or start testing. The Certified Guide will confirm the date you are testing is within the 3 month extension window from the date marked on the box and only then move forward with the testing process. This sticker should not be marked, covered or altered in any way.
eMed Certified Guides cannot move forward in testing with any BinaxNOW Home Test that has expired as it does not meet the requirements outlined in the FDA EUA.
The BinaxNOW™ COVID-19 Ag Card Home Test has not been FDA cleared or approved. It has been authorized by the FDA under an emergency use authorization. The test has been authorized only for the detection of proteins from SARS-CoV-2, not for any other viruses or pathogens, and is only authorized for the duration of the declaration that circumstances exist justifying the authorization of emergency use of in vitro diagnostic tests for detection and/or diagnosis of COVID-19 under Section 564(b)(1) of the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, 21 U.S.C. § 360bbb-3(b)(1), unless the declaration is terminated or authorization is revoked sooner.
Why is a Certified Guide needed?
Proper administration of the testing and accurate results reporting are absolutely necessary to help save lives and slow the spread of COVID-19. eMed’s Certified Guides help ensure the virtually guided testing sessions are administered and results read correctly so both the individual user and the broader public health system can be confident in the results.
eMed’s innovative digital point-of-care platform enables this supervision to occur remotely, protecting individuals from potential exposure in physical health care settings and enabling eMed to process millions of tests per day.
Anyone who administers their own test without an eMed Certified Guide will be ineligible to receive a digital NAVICA™ Pass of their negative result.
