Vessel customers and friends,
We hope you’re doing well and staying safe. As things are moving quickly here at Vessel, we’ve committed to sending a monthly update to keep you informed on our progress with your Wellness Test Card pre-order and our approach to at-home COVID-19 Antibody Testing.
COVID-19 Antibody Tests Update
We are actively working with the FDA to gain emergency use authorization for our fully at-home testing to detect the presence of COVID-19 antibodies.
To bring this initiative to life we have successfully partnered with FDA authorized manufacturers to bring COVID-19 Antibody test cards to market which enable 95%+ accuracy.
We have begun accepting bulk orders from businesses and government offices for test cards that can be administered on-site or in clinics.
We’ve also been conducting live usability studies for our fully at-home testing and are currently conducting over 100 tests a week.
Our clinical trials are scheduled to begin this month in partnership with the VA, Doc.ai, and Anthem. If things continue to progress at this rate we are hoping to be authorized in a few weeks!
With all this progress our waitlist for fully at-home COVID-19 antibodies continues to grow. We invite you to spread the word with your friends & family to reserve their spot in line by joining the waitlist.
Wellness Test Cards Update
In regards to your pre-order, unfortunately, we continue to experience some shipping delays. We are allocating a significant amount of our resources to combat COVID-19. Our manufacturing partners are still operating at reduced capacity.
The good news is that we’ve evolved from 3D printing our Wellness Test Cards to the initial stages of mass manufacturing for our final test card design. We are proud to have filed multiple patents around some of the innovations that enable our at-home wellness test. We’ve also finalized our packaging and are working hard to start shipping late summer.
Sincerely, Your friends at Vessel
