- The test has been validated, the University of Illinois System’s final application for emergency use authorization from the United States Food and Drug Administration was submitted on Dec. 30, 2020, and the FDA’s independent review of the validation is pending.

- Provide a quality test and testing system to curb the spread of the pandemic
- Offer a solution that is affordable enough to use at scale and safely reopen for private and public good
