The lateral flow immunoassay technology is used in the Instant Covid Test Boson.
This assay enables for the quick detection of SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid protein.
To begin the test, a self-collected anterior nares swab sample in adults aged 15 and older or a swab collected by a parent or guardian in individuals aged 2 to 14 is put into the Tube. The liquid in the tube interacts with the specimen, allowing the right viral antigens to be exposed to the test antibodies.
The liquid in the tube now containing the specimen is poured into the COVID-19 Test Card’s Sample Port.
