Status™ COVID-19/Flu A&B
Status™ COVID-19/Flu A&B test is a lateral flow immunoassay intended for the in vitro rapid, simultaneous qualitative detection and differentiation of nucleocapsid antigen from SARS-CoV-2, influenza A and/or influenza B directly from nasopharyngeal swab specimens obtained from individuals, who are suspected of respiratory viral infection consistent with COVID-19 by their healthcare provider, within the first five days of onset of symptoms.
Testing is limited to laboratories certified under the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments of 1988 (CLIA), 42 U.S.C. §263a, that meet the requirements to perform moderate, high, or waived complexity tests. This product is authorized for use at the Point of Care (POC), i.e., in patient care settings operating under a CLIA Certificate of Waiver, Certificate of Compliance, or Certificate of Accreditation.

Interpretation of Results
Positive: A reddish purple Control line (C position) and a reddish purple Test line (Flu A, Flu B or CoV19 position) indicate that Influenza A, B and/or SARS-CoV-2 antigen has been detected.
Lines at the A and C positions indicate the presence of Influenza type A viral antigen, lines at the B and C positions indicate the presence of Influenza type B viral antigen, and
lines at the CoV19 and C positions indicate the presence of SARS-CoV-2 viral antigen in the specimen.
A positive result does not rule out co-infections with other pathogens or identify any specific influenza A virus subtype.
Negative: A reddish purple Control line (C position) only, with no Test line at the A, B, CoV19 positions.
Invalid: A reddish purple line should always appear at the Control line position (C position). If a line does not form at the Control line position in 15 minutes, the test result
is invalid and the test should be repeated with a new Status™ COVID-19/Flu test device.
The performance of this test has not been evaluated for immunocompromised individuals.
The performance of the Status™ COVID-19/Flu test was not evaluated for SARS-CoV-2 detection with samples collected in viral transport media and should not be used with this test.
Individuals who received nasally administered influenza A vaccine may produce positive test results for up to three days after vaccination.
The Status™ COVID-19/Flu test can distinguish among influenza A, B and SARS-CoV-2 viruses, but it cannot differentiate influenza subtypes.
Performance of the Status™ COVID-19/Flu test has not been established for novel variants of SARS-CoV-2.
Frequently Asked Questions
The COVID-19 is caused by SARS-CoV-2 whereas the Flu is caused by the influenza virus. There are two main types of influenza virus called influenza A and influenza B. Different strains of influenza A and influenza B emerge and circulate each year.
This test has been designed to act as a supplementary test for suspected cases of negative coronavirus nucleic acid detection or in conjunction with nucleic acid detection in the diagnosis of suspected cases. Results from nucleocapsid protein antigen testing should not be used as the sole basis to diagnose or exclude SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) infection or to inform infection status. A confirmatory molecular PCR test needs to be taken.
No, the Rapid Antigen test does not require any other equipment. This test contains all the tools you need from sample collection to result reading.
