F. Hoffmann-La Roche AG unveiled on Tuesday that its SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Self Test Nasal for home testing received the CE mark, indicating that it has passed European Union directives regarding health and safety.

According to the company, the test takes 15 minutes to provide a result and can be performed without specialized training or supervision, and it will now be made available in all countries that accept the CE mark. Alongside the test, the company stated it was offering a digital app NAVIFY® Pass which will display the results of the test, as well as vaccination status through a personalized QR code.

Chief Executive Officer of Roche Diagnostics Thomas Schinecker commented on the approval: "Regular self-testing at home can reduce pressure on healthcare systems. It can quickly identify people with the highest potential to be infectious so they can take immediate action to seek medical advice, manage their infection, and protect others."
