Description

The Ellume COVID-19 Home Test is a type of test called an antigen test. When you have COVID-19, the SARS-CoV-2 virus (the virus that causes COVID-19) can be present in your nasal secretions. The Ellume COVID-19 Home Test can detect small parts of SARS-CoV-2 virus in your nasal secretions. These small parts of the SARS-CoV-2 virus are known as proteins or antigens.

There are different kinds of tests for diagnosing COVID-19 (CDC). Molecular tests (also known as PCR tests) detect genetic material from the virus. The Ellume COVID-19 Home Test is an antigen test which detects small parts or proteins from the virus. Antigen tests are very specific for the virus but are not as sensitive as molecular tests. Another type of test is an antibody test. A COVID-19 antibody test detects antibodies that have been made by your immune system in response to a previous COVID-19 infection. Antibody tests are not suitable to diagnose an active COVID-19 infection.

Test features:

  • results in 15 minutes
  • one test, once (no second test after 24-36 hours required)
  • highly accurate
  • designed for untrained users:
    • app with step-by-step animated instructions
    • clear, unambiguous results (in words)
    • short nasal swab with protective child adapter and comfort tip
  • automatic mandatory result reporting to public health authorities. No need to report results to healthcare professionals.

For users with and without symptoms aged 2 years and above without requiring a prescription.

 

Test Quality

The Ellume COVID-19 Home Test correctly identified 96% of positive samples and 100% of negative samples in individuals with symptoms. In people without symptoms the test correctly identified 91% of positive samples and 96% of negative samples. This performance was measured during a clinical study conducted in the USA from October 2020 to November 2020, comparing the Ellume COVID-19 Home Test results to a FDA Emergency Use Authorized high sensitivity PCR (molecular) test.
