VANCOUVER, British Columbia, October 13, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Victory Square Health Inc.(“VS Health” or the “Company“) – a portfolio company of Victory Square Technologies Inc. (“Victory Square“) (CSE:VST) (OTC:VSQTF) (FWB:6F6) announced today that it was granted permission by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in the United States to commence marketing, sales and distribution under the emergency use authorization (EUA) for its Safetest 15 Minute Rapid Test Covid-19 assay.
The Safetest 15 Minute Covid-19 Rapid Test enables the user to receive results with a 96.6% sensitivity in 15 minutes by a simple blood sample similar to that of a hand held diabetes reader that resembles a pregnancy test stick. This highly accurate test enables the participant to quickly detect if they have Covid-19 antibodies in 15 minutes.
The United States has seen over 7.8 million Covid-19 cases as of October 9, 2020. The Safetest 15 minute Covid-19 Rapid Test is designed to provide accurate data to people with the intention to help stop the spread of this virus. This FDA approval for the Safetest Covid-19 15-minute Rapid Test is in addition to the Elisa Test permission granted to the company by the FDA under EUA on August 25, 2020.
The clinical validation data provided by VS Health on Safetest Covid-19 IgM/IgG Rapid Test kit covers both immunoglobulin type M (IgM) and G (IgG). When IgM antibodies are present, they can indicate that a patient has an active or recent infection with SARS-CoV-2. When IgG antibodies are present, it indicates past infection and exposure.
The USA has the largest number of Covid-19 cases in the world and there is concern for a second “Fall wave” globally. Victory Square Health is confident that its Safetest Covid-19 Rapid Test can make a difference through assisting companies, staff, and public places where transmission may occur with a reliable, accurate, and fast Rapid Test.

Victory Square Health can provide Covid-19 testing-as-a-service to large and small scale companies, government organizations, the public as well as for border agencies, airports, and public entertainment spaces.
VS Health was founded in 2016 to accelerate the development of personalized medicine and technology solutions including diagnostic tests to support patient’s care and improve health outcomes. Its first product, the Leishmaniasis Rapid Test, was developed in partnership with the UFMG, Federal University of Minas Gerais. Safetest took advantage of its expertise in the subject to develop other antibody-based tests and a robust R&D pipelines of diagnostic kits for Hansen’s Disease, Brucellosis, HTLV and Blood samples screening tests.
