In the United States, Forensic Use Only products may only be sold to laboratories associated with the criminal justice system as these products have not been cleared by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) via the Section 510(k) pre-market notification process. These products are not intended to be used for In Vitro Diagnostic Use and may not be used for medical or diagnostic purposes to identify ailments, dependency or illness. To insure compliance with the FDA regulations for Forensic Use Only products, MedTest Dx’s will require customers to sign an acknowledgement letter that will be kept on file before these products will be shipped.
Wayne Brinster, CEO of MedTest Dx, stated: “With the emerging focus on the Opioid Crisis in the United States, MedTest Dx is pleased to be able to offer these tests on our scalable chemistry instruments used in criminal justice laboratories. Whether test volume is low or high, MedTest Dx can provide a “right-sized” testing solution that will optimize laboratory operations and provide cost-effective instrument and reagents.”
