How advancements in POC testing have impacted health systems

COVID-19 exposed tremendous gaps in health systems and access to testing. Importantly, it also showed the need for rapid and reliable testing in order to safely reopen schools, return to the workplace and reopen the economy.

In this webinar, LumiraDX Chief Innovation Officer Dr. Nigel Lindner, PhD, will review the impact of next-generation point-of-care (POC) testing during the pandemic, and beyond, and explain the science powering this testing technology.

Moving testing from huge, central laboratories to rapid, portable devices has been a pivotal change in medical technology. Previously, testing performance and speed were at odds, but because of recent technological advancements, it’s now possible to deliver both. Next-generation POC testing, different from traditional lateral flow tests, has proven its ability to deliver highly sensitive COVID-19 test results within minutes.

Join this webinar to learn the science behind next-generation POC testing and how providers have integrated this into their patient care during the pandemic.

LumiraDx

LumiraDx develops, manufactures and commercializes an innovative point of care diagnostic Platform, a next generation point of care diagnostic system that combines a small portable Instrument; microfluidic Test Strip; simple, standardized workflow; and seamless, secure digital connectivity to the Cloud and hospital IT systems. The LumiraDx Platform leverages testing methodologies used in lab analyzer systems to deliver lab comparable performance at the point of care in minutes across a broad test menu, in a portable, easy-to-use point of care solution.

LumiraDx recently launched the SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Test for use on the LumiraDx Platform which delivers results in 12 minutes with 97.6% PPA to an EUA approved RT-PCR method within the first 12 days of symptom onset.

In addition to COVID-19 and other tests already available under CE mark, the Platform integrated several testing technologies and sample types into a single Instrument, allowing continued development across a broad test menu.
