The FDA announced on January 19, 2023 that certain COVID-19 diagnostic tests under emergency use authorization (EUA) now have a longer shelf life. Diagnostics made by Abbott, Maxim Biomedical and iHealth Labs all received extensions for their expiration dates. “The expiration dates for these tests have been extended to reflect the longer shelf-life,” the FDA said in a notice. The agency based its extension on additional data provided by the manufacturers. This data demonstrated the tests’ durability with the same expected accuracy.
