A new rapid lateral flow antigen COVID-19 testing platform gives testers the ability to process an unprecedented 200-300 people each hour and report results within 15 minutes utilizing testing kits from Quidel, BD and Abbott.

The COVID CleanPass system from Apollo Medco (Atlanta, GA, USA) is a mobile app-linked, HIPAA compliant, cloud secure and data-backed COVID-19 testing platform. Straight forward and effortless to operate, its built-in software walks anyone through all and every step of testing. Its trouble-free transportability and total weight of less than 20 pounds makes any location perfect for use. Its bulletproof and waterproof case floats and protects all electronics inside, no matter how harsh the environment. In case of power failure, its eight-hour battery or solar powered panels ensure that testing continues.

Hassle-free, simple to operate, and compatible with worldwide power sources, the COVID CleanPass is a reliable system that is enabling businesses across the globe to reopen and start growing with absolute peace of mind. With its compact form and overhead airline compliance, immediate global deployment to the next viral outbreak is actually possible. Currently, Apollo Medco is beta testing its COVID-19 testing platform and applying for Emergency Use Authorization from the US Food and Drug Administration which is expected in November 2020. Distribution of the new COVID CleanPass system is then expected to begin in late November 2020.

"Our new COVID CleanPass platform is the most advanced, quality-assured, rapid testing platform in the world," said Apollo Medco President & CEO Ken Dunwody. "We've supercharged the overall COVID testing process by delivering fast and accurate results to the patient in an efficient manner. The front-end of our platform includes our Apollo 'Mission Control' diagnostic unit while the back-end of our platform includes our mobile app-linked, cloud secure, HIPAA compliant test reporting system which includes a dynamic Web portal that maps, tracks and reports COVID hot zones in real time."

"Each Apollo Medco testing system is contained in a portable rugged case and includes a battery that lasts 10 hours, iPad with the proprietary mobile app system, time tracking system, printer and a universal lateral flow analysis device. All testing companies will have access to our HIPPA compliant Web portal for accepting new testing requests, scheduling, assigning systems to testers and managing testing assignments. Automatic reporting of all COVID-19 tests through the Apollo Medco COVID CleanPass system will enable testing companies to provide quick, accurate information," added Dunwody.
