Frequent. Fast. Cheap. Easy.
XPRIZE Rapid Covid Testing is a $5 million dollar, 6-month competition to develop faster, cheaper, and easier to use COVID-19 testing methods at scale. No more guessing. No more lack of tests. The world needs more high-quality, affordable testing to safely re-open.
Testing for Impact
Access to COVID-19 testing is not equal, and it needs to be. Many communities across the world have limited to no access to regular testing. XPRIZE imagines a future where anyone, anywhere can receive a COVID-19 test and get results within hours. The goal of XPRIZE Rapid Covid Testing is to develop innovative, scalable COVID-19 testing solutions that will radically change the world by providing much needed insights to help society safely reopen – and not in some distant future, but right now.
There is near infinite need and demand for COVID-19 tests, and we need screening testing capabilities 100-times greater than our current status to return our economy and society to normal function.
