Pro North Medical associate, film producer and actor Cody Hackman who has produced films for Netflix, Lionsgate, MGM and many other companies says, “Our industry is anxiously waiting to safely resume pre-pandemic production volumes. Productions are finally starting to ramp up again but are now taking more time and are more costly due to Covid19. The Safetest Covid-19 Rapid Test from Victory Square Health will enable our industry to open up more quickly, safely, efficiently, and effectively to reduce the extra costs and production delays occurring due to Covid.”
“I am very pleased to have partnered with Victory Square Health to quickly and efficiently distribute and sell its Safetest Covid-19 suite of testing products to our network in the USA and hopefully soon throughout Canada with health approvals,” said Robert Horne, CEO ProNorth Medical. “Our Company has already received inquiries and requests/demand for the VSH Safetest Covid-19 Rapid test from our extensive network in America.”
Felipe Peixoto, CEO of VSH said, “The global vaccination process is a positive step towards tackling the world pandemic crisis, however, that will take many months if not years to cover the global population. Our Antibody Rapid Test products are critical in the process because they identify if one has had or is currently infected with the Covid-19 virus. By simply taking a drop of blood, the end-user, if previously infected with the virus, will have the antibodies present and know that he/she is not urgently required to take a vaccination.”
The Safetest 15 minute Covid-19 Rapid Testing kit enables the user to receive results with 96.6% sensitivity in 15 minutes by a simple blood sample similar to that of a hand held diabetes reader that resembles a pregnancy test stick. This highly accurate test enables the participant to quickly detect if they have Covid-19 antibodies in 15 minutes.
The Safetest 15 Minute Covid-19 Rapid Test has been granted permission by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in the United States to commence marketing, sales and distribution under the emergency use authorization (EUA). The Safetest 15 Minute Covid-19 Rapid Test has been approved for sale and distribution in the European Union and submitted for review and approval in Canada.
