Web-based portal

TestDirectly is a web-based portal designed to help laboratories increase COVID-19 testing capacity. The portal directly links patients to collection centers and laboratories to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of COVID-19 collection, testing, and reporting. TestDirectly expedites lab services by using QR codes and mobile devices to provide rapid and remote patient data collection.


Fluorescent immunoassay analyzer

The Curian benchtop analyzer features a simple, standardized, three-step workflow for easy training and implementation. The intuitive dual mode user interface can run samples in batch or as single-patient runs. The first assay launched was Curian HpSA for H. pylori testing, with additional assays, including C. difficile GDH/Toxin, Shiga Toxin 1&2, and Campylobacter to follow.

Meridian Bioscience

SARS Antigen FIA

The Sofia SARS Antigen FIA uses advanced immunofluorescence-based lateral flow technology for qualitative detection of nucleocapsid protein from SARS-CoV-2. The Sofia SARS Antigen FIA, with the Sofia 2 and Sofia analyzers, provides automated and objective results in 15 minutes, allowing for testing of patients suspected of COVID-19/2019-nCoV in near-patient testing environments.


Flu A & B Test

The OSOM Ultra Plus Flu A & B Test is a CLIA-Waived in vitro rapid qualitative test that is designed to detect influenza type A and type B nucleoprotein antigens. It provides rapid results at the point-of-care (POC) with sensitivity that meets or exceeds reader devices without the need for an instrument.

Sekisui Diagnostics

PCR System

The cobas Liat system automates the testing process, simplifies workflow and enables healthcare professionals to perform molecular testing in a variety of settings with speed, reliability and minimal training. Definitive results are generated in 20 minutes or less to aid in treatment decisions.


qPCR Instrument

The Zulu RT is a rapid, modular qPCR instrument that can perform a 40-cycle, 6-channel, 3-step real-time PCR in less than 20 minutes for volumes from 10 µL to 50 µL. Key features include a modular, random access design that allows for multiple users at one time.
