Bergen New Bridge Medical Center Adds COVID-19 Testing in the Field for Improved Emergency Medical Service

The Bergen New Bridge Medical Center Emergency Medical Service (EMS) program added offsite COVID-19 antigen testing using the Clip COVID Rapid Antigen Test.

We can rapidly identify suspected COIVD-19 patients in the field to ensure a safe and timely referral to the emergency room when necessary. The Clip COVID Rapid Antigen Test, the most portable automated reader antigen test on the market, is approved for us through an FDA Emergency Use Authorization. The reader provides automated analysis and reduces user errors from misreading test results in the field.
