Ag Ultra Pool Test

Test 5 samples in 5 minutes.

Verify quickly that COVID-19 isn't spreading in your population with a rapid microfluidic assay that provides actionable, lab-comparable and cost-efficient results for pooled patient samples in just 5 minutes.

Test benefits

  • Quickly and easily scale up testing
  • Save time: Pooled testing can result in a 40-60% reduction in testing
  • Microfluidic immunofluorescence assay
  • Sample type: nasal swab
  • Easy to implement at point of care
    • No refrigeration storage required: room temperature storage (2-30°C)
    • Small and portable Instrument
    • Minimal handling steps

Test workflow

The Instrument and Test Strips are integrated with several quality control checks to ensure the Instrument and Test are functioning correctly for every test run.

The workflow process is comprised of a simple sample prep along with step-by-step guidance of the Instrument to report a patient result in just 5 minutes from sample application.

Test performance

In clinical studies, the LumiraDx SARS-CoV-2 Ag Ultra Pool test demonstrated 93.1%* positive agreement versus RT-PCR in samples collected up to and including 12 Days since onset of symptoms.

Verify quickly that COVID-19 isn’t spreading in your population

The following table shows the performance for subsets grouped by Ct value, of the results above, illustrating that the LumiraDx SARS-CoV-2 Ag Ultra Pool test has high sensitivity in patients with a Ct value <34.

Samples with Cts above 33-34 are generally considered to be non-infectious1 indicating that the LumiraDx SARS-CoV-2 Ag Ultra Pool test can verify quickly that COVID-19 isn’t spreading in your population.
