CareStart™ COVID-19 Antigen Home Test Disclaimer


This test is for in vitro diagnostic use only. This product has been authorized only for the detection of proteins from SARS-CoV-2, not for any other viruses or pathogens. This test has been authorized by FDA under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA). This product is only authorized for the duration of the declaration that circumstances exist justifying the authorization of emergency use of in vitro diagnostics for detection and/or diagnosis of COVID-19 under Section 564(b)(1) of the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, 21 U.S.C. § 360bbb-3(b)(1), unless the declaration is terminated or authorization is revoked sooner.

As of November 22, 2021, CareStart™ COVID-19 Antigen Home Test is authorized to use with individual anterior nasal swab specimens from individuals age 14 years and older (self-collected), or 2 years and older (collected with adult assistance) for non-prescription home use by FDA under the EUA (EUA210314/S002). The authorized labeling has been changed with the new indication (Quick Reference Instructions (QRI) and Fact Sheet for Individuals, Instructions for Use (IFU) for Healthcare Providers (HCP), Fact Sheet for HCP, and kit package); however, CareStart™ COVID-19 Antigen Home Test will continue to be distributed with the labeling previously authorized per EUA210314/S001 on the FDA’s enforcement discretion in efforts to increase the testing accessibility for COVID-19. Since the differences between the CareStart™ COVID-19 Antigen Home Test kit previously authorized (EUA210314/S001) and currently authorized (EUA210314/S002) are limited to the authorized labeling, you may use the CareStart™ COVID-19 Antigen Home Test kit with the new indication for use (described above).
