Process to Request COVID-19 BinaxNOW Point of Care Antigen Testing Supplies from the State Inventory

January 15, 2021 12:57 PM | Amanda Schumacher (Administrator)

The State of Wisconsin is offering BinaxNOW point of care antigen tests to a variety of facility types. The antigen test is best used in outbreak testing and testing of symptomatic individuals. Lab-based molecular testing continues to be the “gold-standard”. The BinaxNOW tests may be appropriate if preferred testing is not available in a timely manner. Supplies provided by the state are in addition to BinaxNOW tests distributed directly to the facilities by HHS.

Facilities must qualify to receive additional allocation:

  • Maintain a current CLIA certificate or waiver
  • Have access to PCR testing.

If inventory allows, additional opportunities for BinaxNOW tests will be made available via a similar request process.

How to request BinaxNOW tests

Your facility may request a two week supply to support staff and resident testing strategy; tests are not intended to test visitors and family. Please size your order to reflect only what you need from the state.

If your organization would like to request BinaxNOW tests from the state, please fill out the request form: BinaxNOW Antigen Test Request.  Please submit your order request by close of business Monday, January 18.

If the state receives additional allocations of tests in the future, they may also be made available via a similar request process and you will be notified when they are available.
