April 5, 2021 – Silver Spring, MD. BioIT Solutions announced that it has developed and launched a mobile application to support the COVID-19 testing efforts of the Cambridge Consortium for Rapid COVID-19 Tests (CCRCT), a partnership of LabCentral, BioInnovation Labs (BioLabs), and E25Bio.
“BioIT Solutions is pleased to have been selected by the CCRCT to develop the application to support data collection in an IRB-approved human research study to compare an at-home COVID-19 antigen test against nasal samples processed by qRT-PCR in a laboratory,” said BioIT Solutions’ President, Mike Fannon. The longitudinal study was rolled out to determine if antigen testing at home allows employees to safely report for in-person work. Users are able to scan a QR code label on a test kit, enter relevant health information, and submit a camera image of the test strip from their homes. The antigen test was developed by E25Bio as a rapid home test for COVID-19, with easily readable results in 15 minutes. Test results are confirmed by a laboratory-based PCR test, facilitated by a laboratory management system also built by BioIT Solutions.
Celina Chang, LabCentral’s Vice President of Science Operations and Strategic Relationships, notes that “BioIT Solutions has been a valuable partner through the planning, implementation and deployment of a critical customized LIM system. They adapt quickly to changing needs and deliver high-quality systems in a remarkably short time. Users of BioIT’s mobile application consistently report that it is reliable, easy to use, and convenient, resulting in a positive user experience and reliable data to help us reduce disease transmission and provide a safe work environment.”
