Note that CareStart, the manufacturer of the COVID-19 rapid antigen test kits that UMSON will distribute, has extended the shelf life of its tests from 6 months to 9 months.
This means the tests are viable beyond the indicated expiration date on the package. You can confirm the extended expiration date of the kit you have by identifying the lot number, printed on the box, in the table on Page 2 of this document. For example, test kits marked with a March 2022 expiration date have been confirmed to be viable until June 2022.
