COVID-19 Rapid Test Details:

  •     Rapid test is an IgG/IgM rapid fingerstick test that gives results in ten minutes
  •     Accuracy rate is 92.9%
  •     Specimens do not need to be sent to a lab for processing nor require on-site laboratory equipment as the results display directly on the test kit strip
  •     Lateral flow chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of IgG and IgM antibodies to the COVID-19 virus meaning the combination IgG/IgM test can reflect virus infection and the immune status of the body effectively and quickly
  •     Provides highly accurate results from a drop of fingertip blood, can distinguish recent or current infection, past infection, no infection swiftly
The COVID-19 Rapid Test Kit is approved under the CE process for distribution in Europe. For the US, distribution is available in accordance with new draft guidance by the FDA as well as their waiver allowing Governors to approve COVID-19 test kits for use in their states. These test kits have been validated by the manufacturer who has complied by applying for Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) in the U.S.
