Considerations for IVD Involvement in the Emergency Use Authorization Pathway

Wednesday, November 4, 2020 | 10 AM CST

This webinar will include a 45 minute presentation and 10 to 15 minutes of Q&A.

Due to the current global COVID-19 pandemic, many diagnostic organizations are seeking opportunities to provide tests through the FDA’s Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) pathway. Since the emergency was declared, the FDA has released numerous guidelines and recommendations to submit EUAs for a variety of tests, including traditional diagnostic manufacturers, CLIA laboratories, LDTs, and at-home test kits. IVD companies not only have to navigate these individual guidances, but also must decide whether to submit a pre-EUA to gather FDA feedback or if their test meets the qualification criteria, to move ahead with the direct EUA submission process.

  • Qualification criteria for EUA submissions & deciding when to submit a pre-EUA
  • Clarifying the 95% confidence interval outlined by the FDA
  • Differences for manufacturers, CLIA, LDTs, & at-home tests
  • Opportunities for emergency pathways in global markets
