Why choose a lab antigen test?


Suspected COVID-19 outbreaks 

Lab antigen tests are ideal in remote settings, institutions, and semi-closed communities where PCR is not immediately available.
COVID-19 testing for large organizations and facilities

Large organizations and facilities

Ongoing monitoring can help prevent widespread infection within institutions and workplaces such as schools, offices, dormitories, factories, correctional institutions, and medical facilities.
Domestic and international traveler COVID-19 testing

Domestic and international traveler testing

Efficient and scalable passenger testing is ideal for airports, train stations, and cruise ships.
  • Can help increase testing capacity to support testing of large groups and organizations. 
  • Ability to detect multiple variants, including Delta and Omicron.
