Quidel Sofia RSV Rapid Test Kit (FIA) Nasopharyngeal Swab, Wash & Aspirate Sample, 25 Tests
The Sofia 20260 RSV Fluorescent Immunoassay (FIA) uses advanced immunofluorescence-based lateral-flow technology to detect respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) nucleoprotein antigen directly from nasopharyngeal swab and nasopharyngeal aspirate/wash specimen.
The Sofia RSV FIA Test is a testing system designed to identify the RSV virus in individuals 19 years of age and under. Results are produced in about 3 minutes in cases of a positive result and 15 minutes in cases of a negative result, allowing a patient to be assessed, diagnosed, and treated in one visit. Results are color-coded and binary, providing an unambiguous positive or negative.
This kit has a very quick learning time and is performed in a total of three steps, reducing the chance of contamination or procedural error. Due to the simplicity of the testing protocol, the technician is not required to monitor the test for the duration of the time it takes to get results. Each test cassette has a barcode so it can be tracked by the Sofia machines, thereby reducing the risk of error. The test for Respiratory Syncytial Virus is CLIA Waived for those 7 and under.
