Verified First's partner, Drug Tests in Bulk (DTIB), is now providing COVID-19 test kits for professional use by hospitals and clinics.
The COVID-19 IgG/IgM Rapid Tests from DTIB are intended to help triage patients, symptomatic or asymptomatic for COVID-19 using human whole blood, serum or plasma.
We all play a part in reducing the spread of COVID-19. At Verified First, it’s our goal to make sure we use our network to get these kits in the hands of healthcare professionals.

These tests are used by hospitals and clinics to help triage patients, not as the sole basis to diagnose or exclude SARS-CoV-2 infection.
Negative results do not rule our SARS-CoV-2 infection, particularly in those who have been in contact with the virus. Follow-up testing with a laboratory test should be considered to rule out infection in these individuals.
"These kits are designed for rapid testing," says Leon Reingold, DrugTestsInBulk.Com’s CEO. "When you have thousands upon thousands of patients, you do not have time to wait for lab testing that can take days to provide results. We need to get out there and triage patients immediately so we can get to the people who are truly infected.”
While the FDA EAU application has been submitted and is under review, these kits have not been reviewed by FDA.
These kits from DTIB are FDA Emergency Use Authorization Pending. The FDA has determined that there is a public health emergency and that “circumstances exist justifying the authorization of emergency use of in vitro diagnostics for detection and/or diagnose of the novel coronavirus.” The FDA has provided guidance for “labs and commercial manufacturers to help accelerate the use of tests they develop.”
