FDA Will No Longer Review EUA Requests for COVID-19 Laboratory Developed Tests

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will no longer require premarket review of laboratory developed tests (LDTs), including COVID-19 tests, decline to review emergency use authorization (EUA) request for LDTs. Instead, the FDA will prioritize review of EUAs for point-of-care tests, home collection tests, at-home tests, tests that reduce reliance on test supplies, and high-throughput, widely distributed tests.
