The QIAreach Anti-SARS-CoV-2 Total Test is a rapid, qualitative serological test that detects total antibody responses (IgM, IgG, and IgA) to expressed SARS-CoV-2 viral antigens in serum or plasma (sodium heparin, lithium heparin, dipotassium EDTA and tripotassium EDTA).
Antibodies are detected on a single-use, lateral flow, digital detection cartridge (eStick) via nanoparticle fluorescence. The eStick contains state-of-the-art optoelectronic technology and a microprocessor that converts a fluorescent signal into a qualitative readout for the presence of SARS-CoV-2 specific antibodies in patient test samples.
The QIAreach Anti-SARS-CoV-2 Total Test is performed by inserting the eStick into an QIAreach eHub (sold separately). The QIAreach eHub is a connection hub that provides power to perform multiple QIAreach Anti-SARS-CoV-2 Total Tests simultaneously. The eHub acts as a power source and features a rechargeable lithium battery to allow QIAreach Anti-SARS-CoV-2 Total Tests to be performed when a continuous power supply is not available.
QIAreach Anti-SARS-CoV-2 Total Test results are determined as Positive or Negative according to the assay result algorithm on the eStick firmware.
Optional use software is available to backup test results, generate test reports, and support online data transfer.
