Download the Navica app on your PC. NAVICA allows you to receive and store your encrypted BinaxNOW antigen test results and manage your Pass
What is the NAVICA PC App?
This is a new app that Abbott designed to pair with our BinaxNOW rapid antigen test for COVID-19. The app works on iPhone and Android devices and allows people to store, access and display their BinaxNOW test results so we can more confidently return to life. And now you can use this app on your PC as well.
How Does the App Work?
When you get Abbott’s BinaxNOW test at a NAVICA-enabled test center, the results can be displayed on your NAVICA for PC app. These results are encrypted and available only to you and those whom you choose to share them with.
If you test negative, the app will display a temporary encrypted digital pass with a QR code, similar to an airline boarding pass. The pass will be renewed each time a person takes a new test and receives a negative test result and will include the date of the latest test result.
Organizations will be able to view and verify the information on a mobile device to facilitate entry into facilities along with hand-washing, social distancing, enhanced cleaning and mask-wearing. If you test positive, you’ll receive a message in the app to quarantine and talk to your doctor.
What are the Key Benefits
It’s all about helping restore a sense of normalcy. Helping people get back to doing the things they love with a little more confidence than they’ve had during the pandemic.
for Healthcare Providers
Many frontline health workers are overwhelmed with people who need to be tested or treated for COVID-19. The NAVICA for Windows app allows healthcare providers in all settings to easily display test results to their patients and customers.
Organizations are trying to balance safety with the importance of getting students back into classrooms and adults back to work. The app, by displaying the results of our BinaxNOW test, may help reduce the risk of virus spread and increase confidence at places where people tend to gather in large numbers.
Abbott’s new rapid antigen test — the BinaxNOW COVID-19 Ag Card — has received emergency use authorization (EUA) from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The test pairs with an optional app called NAVICA that works like a secure mobile boarding pass, which can be scanned to facilitate easier entry into organizations and facilities.
