Rapid Testing Kits Coming Soon for Hillsborough First Responders

PUBLISHED 8:58 AM ET Apr. 27, 2020

HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla. -- Widespread coronavirus testing could be available for first responders in Hillsborough County as early as this week. 

These are rapid testing kits that will determine who has the virus, which will help the department pinpoint who may have been exposed. 

As COVID-19 quickly spread across the country, first responders accounted for some of the earliest cases, even here in Hillsborough County. 

"We had four members test positive for COVID-19. We've had over 60 members tested. We've had numerous folks exposed, isolated, or quarantined," Deputy Chief Jason Dougherty said. 

That's why it was so important for Hillsborough County to test all of its first responders. The county shelled out about $250,000 for 44,000 rapid COVID-19 testing kits. 

"The test will tell them whether they've been exposed to the COVID-19 virus or whether they have COVID-19," Dougherty said. 

First responders in municipalities like Tampa will also have access to the rapid testing kits and so will staffers at nursing homes. 

The county ordered the kits from American Biomedica, a New York-based company. 

While this particular test hasn't been reviewed by the FDA, the government allowed it to be used under an emergency act. 

Several of those testing companies have come under fire for results that yielded false positives and false negatives. However, according to Chief Dougherty, any results that come back will have to be confirmed by the Florida Department of Health. 

"It's an important step for members to give them a piece of mind but also to protect the citizens in the community and make them feel safe and comfortable with our folks responding to the emergency," Dougherty said. 

The testing kits could arrive as early as Wednesday.

ABMC Offers rapid Test for COVID-19

–Company expects distribution would materially impact sales–

Kinderhook, N.Y., March 23, 2020 – American Bio Medica Corporation (OTCPK: ABMC), a manufacturer of accurate, cost-effective immunoassay test kits, announced today that it began offering on March 17, 2020, via a distribution partnership, a Rapid Test to detect Covid-19 in whole blood, serum or plasma. The assay offers qualitative and differential detection of IgG and IgM antibodies to the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (Covid-19) and provides results in as few as 2 minutes and generally not more than 15 minutes. The test has not yet been reviewed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), but is being offered under the March 16, 2020 guidance set forth by the FDA. 

The test can be used for rapid screening of carriers of the virus that are symptomatic or asymptomatic and can be used across many markets including hospitals, clinics, and by employers and correctional institutions. The test is not available for consumer use and will be marketed in full compliance with the FDA guidance, including the required labeling indicating that antibody testing should not be used as the sole basis to diagnose or exclude a Covid-19 infection. 

To place an order, customers can call (800) 227-2343, or (518) 758-8158 outside the United States or, contact the company via email at COVID19@abmc.com
