Amira Self-Test FAQs

Amira Analyzer

Make sure you have Bluetooth enabled on your phone before trying to connect to the Amira Analyzer. Follow the instructions in the app to connect the phone and the Amira Analyzer correctly. Also check that your phone is close to the Amira Analyzer and that no-one else is running a test on that Amira Analyzer.

You can pair with up to 7 Amira Analyzers.

We recommend giving your Amira Analyzer a name so that it is easy to identify which Analyzer to connect to if you have more than one present.

Running an Amira Self-Test

Each time you run a test, the Engage App will ask you to select the code on the Test Strip Container to ensure that you receive an accurate test result. It is important to check the expiry date on the Test Strip Container each time you test to make sure the Test Strips are in date. You should not perform a test using Test Strips that have expired.

Cleaning and disposing of the Amira Test Kit

It is recommended that you clean the Amira Analyzer after each test, especially if the test result was positive for COVID-19. You should refer to the Cleaning and Disposing section in the Instructions for Use for guidance. Use the approved cleaning materials to wipe the surface of the closed Amira Analyzer. Do not spray or pour any cleaning materials directly onto the Amira Analyzer. Do not allow cleaning materials to get into the Test Strip slot. Do not open the door when cleaning the Amira Analyzer.

You must dispose of the Test Strip, Test Tube and Swab in the trash.
