COVID Scout is enabling early detection of respiratory triggers from home, revolutionizing personal healthcare with faster, simpler, and affordable diagnostics.

Asthma and similar long-term respiratory ailments significantly affect the lives of more than 25 million Americans, as reported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The physical strain is undeniable, and the financial burden can be overwhelming. The Annals of the American Thoracic Society (AATS) reports that on average, individuals with these conditions face an additional $1,766 in medical costs each year. However, imagine a world where you could detect triggers like COVID-19 or the flu at their earliest stages, right from the comfort of your own home. This dream is becoming a reality with the introduction of a groundbreaking home health platform by Scout.

Scout has developed an at-home diagnostic platform powered by a unique and patented chemistry known as Loop-de-Loop LAMP. It is poised to revolutionize personal healthcare by providing a faster, simpler, and equally accurate alternative to traditional PCR testing, with results delivered right to your phone or tablet. The first release for the Scout platform is COVID Scout— a PCR-quality, at-home COVID test that’s easy to use.


COVID Scout is set to launch very soon, with pre-registrations currently open on The platform’s user-friendly design eliminates the need for special training — all it takes is a simple swab-and-wait procedure. The results are then conveniently delivered right to your smart device within 30 minutes, equipping you with the power to act swiftly in the face of potential illness.

COVID Scout goes beyond early detection; it empowers individuals, particularly those with chronic respiratory conditions, by providing them with the knowledge and tools to proactively manage their health. With the platform’s arrival, a healthier future awaits millions with the potential for substantial savings on medical expenses.

Scout is a company backed by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Scout is dedicated to keeping you and your family healthy by providing fast and accurate health data. Beyond COVID, Scout is developing tests for flu, STIs, and more.
