SCoV-2 Ag Detect™ Rapid Test
FDA Emergency Use Authorized and CE Marked
The SCoV-2 Ag Detect™ Rapid Test is a lateral flow chromatographic immunoassay intended for the qualitative detection of the SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid protein antigen in direct anterior nasal swab specimens from individuals who are suspected of COVID-19 by their healthcare provider within the first 5 days of symptom onset when tested at least twice over three days with at least 48 hours between tests and from individuals without symptoms or other epidemiological reasons to suspect COVID-19 when tested at least three times over five days with at least 48 hours between tests. Testing is limited to laboratories certified under the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments of 1988 (CLIA), 42 U.S.C. § 263a, that meet the requirements to perform moderate, high or waived complexity tests. This test is authorized for use at the Point of Care (POC), i.e., in patient care settings operating under a CLIA Certificate of Waiver, Certificate of Compliance, or Certificate of Accreditation.
Update! Initial studies suggest this test will detect the Delta variant at rates similar to the USA-WA1-2020 isolate that was used to develop the assay.
