- CFDA: China Food and Drug Administration
- NMPA: National Medical Products Administration(Formerly known as CFDA)
- IVD: In Vitro Diagnostics
So far, there are more than 300 IVD manufactures in China that can produce COVID-19 Test kits. How to choose a better manufacturer?
We think the first choice is to choose a manufacture that has U.S. FDA, CE and CFDA certification. The second choice is a manufacture that has CD and CFDA certification. The third choice is a manufacture only has CE certification. So, we collected information on suppliers with CE & CFDA certification and their COVID-19 Rapid Test Kits. Hope that will help you to select your preferred IVD manufacturer.
