Executive Summary

Submits 510(k) application to FDA on Oct. 26 for its SafePlan OTC urine test, which is designed as an aid in pregnancy prevention by identifying the 10-to-15 days following ovulation in which a woman is non-fertile. The self-contained immunoassay cassette test, which measures a urinary metabolite of progesterone, takes just over five minutes and has demonstrated a 93%-to-95% rate of effectiveness in clinical tests involving more than 1,000 women, Quidel said. SafePlan will be sold in kits of two-to-four tests. The cost of a one-month supply is estimated at $ 8 to $ 15. Quidel will manufacture the test for Akzo, which has exclusive worldwide marketing rights to the test. Quidel is predicting a European launch as early as next spring.
