Description

The Accula TM SARS-CoV-2 Test is a molecular, in vitro diagnostic test utilizing end point reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) and lateral flow technologies for the qualitative, visual detection of the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 viral RNA. The four steps utilized to perform the test are lysis of the virus, reverse transcription of viral RNA to cDNA, nucleic acid amplification, and detection.

The Accula SARS-CoV-2 Test has been released under FDA Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for the detection of nucleic acid from SARS-CoV-2 (the virus responsible for COVID-19 infection), and can be used in applications that require molecular/ RT-PCR testing. Please consult your state health department for additional information regarding specific uses (such as pre and post travel requirements). Many travel restrictions require a RT-PRC, molecular, or NAAT test be conducted prior to arrival at the destination. Abbott’s ID Now COVID-19 test may satisfy these requirements; however, it is the purchaser’s responsibility to verify the test will be accepted for travel prior to purchase.

The tip of the cotton swab is inserted into both nostrils. The swab does not need to be inserted far, just until the cotton tip of the swab is no longer visible. The swab is then rotated in a circle around the entire inside edge of each nostril at least three times.
