COVID-19 Testing

Employers are under more pressure than ever to protect the health and safety of their employees

Uncompromised on-site testing with the LumiraDx Platform delivers fast, accurate antigen testing. Rapidly identify contagious spreaders on the spot, reducing the risk of a local outbreak & the potential impact on your operations, helping to build employee confidence

"It’s time to change how we think about the sensitivity of testing for COVID-19."1

The benefits of uncompromised on-site testing with LumiraDx

benefits of on-site testing with LumiraDx chartbenefits of on-site testing with LumiraDx chart
  • Less-sensitive lateral flow antigen tests2-4 increase the risk of an infectious employee getting a negative result.
    False negatives leave the door open for contagious persons to slip through (i.e., goes to work rather than flagged for isolation)
  • ‘Swab and send’ delays time needed to get to actionable results
  • PCR can remain positive up to 12 weeks after period of infectivity5

#Negative results should be treated as presumptive and confirmation with a molecular assay, if necessary, for patient management, may be performed. Negative results do not rule out SARS-CoV-2 infection and should not be used as the sole basis for treatment or patient management decisions, including infection control decisions. Negative results should be considered in the context of a patient’s recent exposures, history and presence of clinical signs and symptoms consistent with COVID-19
**Positive results indicate the presence of viral antigens, but clinical correlation with patient history and other diagnostic information is necessary to determine infection status

SARS-CoV-2 Ag Test

Easy to implement on-site at point of care

  • Room Temperature Storage (36-86°F)
  • Time to result in as quick as 12 minutes
  • Compact and portable instrument with connectivity options

High sensitivity Assay

  • Optimal sensitivity to rapidly detect infectious individuals to prevent onward transmission

Bring the lab to you

  • No need to send employees off site
  • Get the data to inform your decisions on safety and reopening at a micro and macro level
  • COVID-19 testing dedicated to your specific needs

LumiraDx SARS-CoV-2 Ag Test

  • LumiraDx SARS-CoV-2 Ag Test demonstrates high sensitivity at Ct<336
  • LumiraDx SARS-CoV-2 Ag Test can detect 10-30% cases potentially missed by antigen lateral flow tests7-11
  • PCR can still be positive long after period of infectivity, leading to misidentification of infective individuals5
  • SARS-CoV-2 Ag correlates with culture better than PCR for aiding in the identification of infective individuals12
  • LumiraDx SARS-CoV-2 Ag Test provides high detection of infective individuals to break the chain of transmission

LumiraDx Connect

  • LumiraDx Connect is an intelligent, integrated connectivity platform that uses the latest cloud-controlled technology for use with LumiraDx Instrument.
  • LumiraDx Connect ensures easy, secure transfer of results from LumiraDx Instrument to Connect Manager.
  • Can be used with mobile phones, tablets or PCs

We are focused on customer experience and dedicated to getting it right every time.
