BD (Becton, Dickinson, and Company) (NYSE: BDX), a leading global medical company, today announced the BD Veritor™ At-Home COVID-19 Test is now available for purchase through Everly Health, a digital health company at the forefront of the virtual diagnostics-driven care industry, and Southeastern Grocers, the parent company of Fresco y Más, Harveys Supermarket, and Winn-Dixie stores, a leading grocery store serving the southeastern United States.
Also available for purchase on Amazon.com, the BD Veritor™ At-Home COVID-19 Test is the first at-home COVID-19 test to use a smartphone camera and app to capture and interpret results, eliminating the human subjectivity in other visually read at-home antigen tests.
"Reliable and widely available testing remains one of the most important measures to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and have rapid test results to support decision-making by your healthcare provider," said Dave Hickey, president of Life Sciences for BD. "Distributors and retailers such as Everly Health and Southeastern Grocers play an important role in the fight against the virus by providing broad, convenient access to at-home tests. With family gatherings and holiday parties on the near horizon, detection of COVID-19 is more important than ever."
Fresco y Más, Harvey's Supermarket and Winn-Dixie
Fresco y Más, Harveys Supermarket, and Winn-Dixie stores now offer tests to consumers in all in-store pharmacy departments at more than 230 grocery store locations.
Gayle Shields, vice president of Pharmacy for Southeastern Grocers said, "Our communities throughout the Southeast continue to be at high risk of COVID-19 infection. At Southeastern Grocers, we are committed to making the best quality products available for our customers. We are proud to partner with BD to help protect our communities and stop the spread of the virus."
The BD Veritor™ At-Home COVID-19 Test uses the Scanwell mobile app on a smartphone to interpret and provide a digital display of testing results in 15 minutes. The test is also one of the only at-home tests to fully automate reporting of results to federal and state public health agencies and provides a streamlined experience for optional reporting to businesses and schools. The BD Veritor™ At-Home COVID-19 Test comes with two tests in each box to facilitate serial testing.
Everly Health offers tests to businesses, government agencies, and consumers through their subsidiaries, Everlywell and Everly Health Solutions. Tests are available directly to consumers on everlywell.com and available to enterprise customers through everlyhealthsolutions.com/covid-19.
When purchased through Everly Health Solutions, the BD Veritor™ At-Home COVID-19 Test integrates seamlessly with Everly Health Solutions' proprietary COVID-19 platform to give organizations the ability to send at-home tests to individuals, securely view test results for both PCR and rapid tests purchased through the company and help manage all elements of a COVID testing program.
"Convenient at-home rapid testing is one of the best tools our country has to combat COVID-19 and protect our workplaces and schools," said Bill Paquin, general manager of Everly Health Solutions, Everly Health's enterprise division. "Now with the launch of the BD Veritor™ At-Home COVID-19 Test on our site and platform, we're pleased to offer organizations the ability to send rapid at-home tests to their members and easily keep track of the results on a single comprehensive platform."
