In the past two years, COVID-19 has drastically changed people's lives and negatively impacted the manufacturing industries due to various factors like lockdowns, disruptions in the supply chain, and restrictions on transportation. However, self-testing is an exception to these factors. Meanwhile, since medical devices are included in essential services, these kits are easily available online and in pharmacies. During the pandemic, people did not frequently visit hospitals due to a fear of infections. Several companies and the government invested in the COVID-19 self-kit to achieve a quick result and limit infection. For example, on October 6th, 2021, the White House planned to spend an additional $1 billion on rapid at-home COVID tests. As a result, research facilities for self-testing kits have been added to incorporate technological advancements into the kits.

In addition, the increasing number of health conditions due to modern lifestyles has led companies to create technologically advanced equipment that can effectively identify various health problems in the United States.

The company has increased the EUA for the Lucira Covid-19 All-In-One kit, which is a prescription-only test that can be used at home to detect viral RNA on self-collected nasal swabs by people aged 14 and older.

ACON Laboratories, Inc., Abbott Laboratories, BTNX Inc., Quidel Corporation, Thermo Fisher Scientific, Access Bio, Lucira Health, Ellume, Ihealth, Orasure, and many other businesses are contributing to deepening their roots in this sector by executing organic strategies.
