The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has authorized an expiry extension for BinaxNOW tests for three months from the current expiration date listed on the external box. The expiration date to reference is the one on the outside of the box by the hourglass icon. Individual components inside the box will have varying expiration dates, do not pay attention to those dates – only the expiration date on the outside of the box beside the hour glass icon.
Any organizations with tests currently expired are encouraged to check expiration dates as this FDA announcement allows use of expired tests up to three months from current expiration date.
Below is an attachment from Abbott including the box lot #s that have been extended.
