Checkable Medical is currently developing the first at-home Strep Test. In order to ensure we have a safe and simple over the counter test we are conducting clinical research to gain FDA clearance.
01. How it works
Patients who opt into the study will be given the at-home test kit and digital instructions to perform the test, prior to having a standard of care test done at the healthcare facility. This study will make use of clinical practices that commonly see walk-in strep patients, including urgent care and pediatric clinics. Ages 5+ can participate in the study.
02. What to expect
Checkable’s at-home strep test platform will include the test kit and a digital application that trains home users on how to take a sample, interpret the results, and, once cleared, will connect the user with a telemedicine provider with the ability to prescribe antibiotics to strep positive patients.
03. What are we trying to solve
Caused by Streptococcus pyogenes, a bacterium that is extremely contagious, strep throat can lead to sinus, tonsil and ear infections and inflammatory illnesses such as scarlet fever and rheumatic fever. Children are particularly vulnerable to strep infection.
By providing at-home tests, Checkable Medical expects to help reduce the burden on the healthcare system and minimize exposure to people displaying acute symptoms of strep.
“You’ll be able to pick up our test at your local pharmacy, use it in the comfort of your own home, and get results in 10 minutes, instead of arranging an appointment with your doctor for a strep test and then waiting hours or even days to get results back,”
“This helps busy families save time and get results faster while reducing the costs to our healthcare system.”
Led by a team of experts.
We believe in rigorous research and making your at-home healthcare experience safe and easy.
Checkable Medical is built in collaboration with experienced doctors, researchers,.. and more.
