binx health is excited to announce it will provide university-wide COVID-19 testing for the New York Film Academy (NYFA), among the most highly regarded visual and performing arts colleges in the world. The binx platform will enable at-home, in-dorm and on campus specimen collection, providing healthcare convenience for NYFA students, faculty and staff at campuses in New York, Los Angeles and Miami.

With US colleges representing 19 of the top 25 vectors of transmission of COVID-19, the binx solution is being deployed across campuses to keep students and faculty safe. As California, Florida and New York currently comprise three of the four states with the highest daily case rates in the country, and are locations that include NYFA campuses, there continues to be a strong need for the convenient, high quality testing, which binx is offering to NYFA and to institutional partners globally.

“At NYFA, our priority is to create a safe and healthy learning and working environment for our students, faculty and staff. With a geographically diverse student and employee base, it was of the utmost importance that our community has access to high quality, accurate, and accessible testing and easy-to-use sample collection, a solution NYFA will be employing on campus and that can also be offered conveniently at-home and in-dorm,” said NYFA President, Michael Young. “With the binx COVID-19 testing solution now in place, our community has the opportunity to easily expand and evaluate other health testing using at-home collection kits with the support and solutions of binx health.”

“We applaud NYFA for their commitment to care, and to their communities, and we look forward to partnering with them across their wellness initiatives,” said Jeffrey Luber, binx Chief Executive Officer.
