The ClearDetect™ COVID-19 Antigen Home Test employs proven Lateral Flow Assay (LFA) technology with a simplified workflow that can easily be done at home without the need for equipment or a reader. The test’s unique format involves only 3 components—a swab, a test strip, and a test tube pre-filled with sample buffer. This eliminates reagent measuring or the need to handle dropper bottles as required with other card-based and self-test systems.
To perform a test, a self-collected nasal swab is mixed with the sample buffer in the tube and the swab handle is snapped off. A test strip is added, and the tube is capped for incubation, reading and disposal in one tube. Results are available within 15 minutes and the signal lines can be visualized for up to 30 minutes.
