“As SARS-CoV-2 continues to evolve, rapid point-of-care testing is a critical component of the Canadian public health response,” said Rob Sambursky, MD, President and Chief Executive Officer of Lumos Diagnostics. “Using CoviDx as part of routine testing and triage protocols can help advance public health and safety in Canada, while also supporting the important efforts underway to ensure the continuity of commerce, tourism and education across the country.”

CoviDx is authorized by Health Canada for use by qualified healthcare professionals in evaluating symptomatic patients, and for serial testing of patients without symptoms. The CoviDx test is a stand-alone POC test that uses individual pre-filled extraction reagent vials to make it easy to administer in any patient care setting – without any additional instruments or equipment. The test is compatible with both nasopharyngeal and the less invasive nasal swab sample collection and provides a simple “yes/no” result.

With Health Canada’s Interim Order authorization, CoviDx is available to qualified healthcare providers across the country through Lumos’ distribution partners.

This announcement has been approved by the Lumos Disclosure Committee.
