Detect SARS-CoV-2 in 60 Minutes

Learn more about Fluxergy’s qualitative real-time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-qPCR) test.*

For Research Use Only (RUO).  Not for use in diagnostic procedures.

Test Overview

• Simple Workflow designed for rapid testing

• Real-Time RT-PCR, RNA extraction NOT required.

• Minimal hands-on time per sample

• Assay Target: SARS-CoV-2 N-gene and orf1ab gene

• Sample: NP swab in VTM

• Limit of Detection (LOD): 0.89 TCID50/mL of sample

The UC San Diego physician-scientist research team that conducted the validation of Fluxergy’s  COVID-19 test has been led by Dr. Davey Smith, Professor of Medicine and Head of the UCSD Division of Infectious Diseases and Global Public Health. Dr. Smith is a member of the Fluxergy Medical Advisory Board. Fluxergy’s COVID-19 test has also been evaluated by Mass General Brigham.

For Surveillance Testing

Whether screening samples at your workplace or school: being able to have population monitoring tools in place, like 1-hour molecular testing, help to create a safer environment.

Swabbing surfaces for COVID-19

For Environmental Testing

Swab your environment to accompany your routine sanitation procedures. This is a workflow that anyone can learn, and a type of testing that has been shown to reliably detect RNA.

For Research Use

It is still critical to screen specimens for your specific research applications – whether that’s therapy development, discovery, and trials OR conducting epidemiological research on COVID-19.

What Experts Say About the Fluxergy Platform

Easy to Understand Test Results

In a real-time PCR assay, a positive detection of target nucleic acid is confirmed by accumulation of a fluorescent signal after the specific target DNA is amplified. Fluxergy Works software will output a qualitative positive, negative, or indeterminate result from your PCR test. This is determined by sensors that look for amplification/presence of the target gene (solid line) and an internal control target (dashed line). The internal control target monitors sample integrity and system functionality. If an indeterminate result occurs, it is recommended that you retest your sample.

Positive Result*

Both the target gene and positive control are amplified.

Negative Result*

Only the positive control target was amplified.
