Vault Health, a US based startup specializing in healthcare for men, has turned focus to help fulfill demand for hard to get COVID-19 tests in 48 states by working with US based RUCDR Infinite Biologics to provide a first-of-its-kind FDA EUA-approved saliva test for COVID-19.

The physician-ordered, provider-supervised and physician-reported saliva collection test for COVID-19, which has the same effectiveness as the swab test, is performed under the supervision of a Vault healthcare provider through a video telehealth visit eliminating the risk of person-to-person exposure to the virus.

This test is precise in detecting the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which causes COVID-19, and the expression of three genes that are only found in the virus using a technique called qPCR. Vault Health will also be following state and federal reporting guidelines to provide requisite patient infection data to help the work of health authorities as they continue to respond to this unprecedented pandemic. 

Vault will make available thousands of tests a week and will continue to scale up test availability as lab capacity of RUCDR Infinite Biologics quickly expands.
