SureScreen's COVID-19 rapid test identifies COVID-19 present in a swab sample and gives a qualitative yes/no result within 15 minutes.
The test is perfect for screening quickly at the patient side for the presence of COVID-19. The test can be used as a companion to the antibody test to increase the window of detection.
Implementing rapid screening for COVID-19 has huge time and cost savings when compared to, or integrated into, laboratory screening, and will help to control the spread of the virus by identifying active infection rapidly and accurately.
A swab is used to sample from either the nose or throat (nasopharyngeal or oropharyngeal sample) and introduced into the test cassette by suspension in a buffer solution.
