Co-Diagnostics Expands Vector Control Customer Base to 25 Customers Across 15 U.S. States

July 2, 2024

SALT LAKE CITY, July 2, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Co-Diagnostics, Inc. (Nasdaq: CODX) (the “Company” or “Co-Dx™️️”), a molecular diagnostics company with a unique, patented platform for the development of molecular diagnostic tests, announced today that use of the Company’s vector control technology will expand to the 15th U.S. state following an installation in Nevada next week.

Co-Dx vector control technology includes Vector Smart®️️ PCR tests used in environmental (non-diagnostic) surveillance of mosquito pools for mosquito-borne illnesses like West Nile virus, Zika, dengue and chikungunya. Mosquito abatement districts (MADs) and other vector control customers can use Vector Smart tests as well as other equipment sold and installed by Co-Diagnostics to receive same-day results of mosquito pool testing, allowing for quicker and more efficient prevention of disease transmission to humans and animals.

Dwight Egan, Co-Diagnostics CEO, remarked, “We are pleased with the continued growth of our vector control platform and products. The importance of providing front-line surveillance against the spread of these mosquito-borne pathogens is increasing, as many experts believe that climate change is driving an expansion of mosquitos capable of carrying deadly illnesses to more areas.

“The broader vector control industry extends beyond mosquito surveillance to other vectors, including birds and livestock. Providing industry-leading PCR tests and equipment can support vector control activities to keep our communities safe from infectious diseases, and aligns with our mission of leveraging our technology platform to improve the quality of life on a global scale.”
