The Lucira CHECKIT COVID-19 Test Kit is a single-use test kit intended for the qualitative detection of nucleic acid from the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 that causes COVID-19. This test is for nonprescription home use with self-collected anterior nasal (nasal) swab specimens in individuals aged 14 years and older (self-collected) or individuals ≥2 years (collected by an adult) with or without symptoms or other epidemiological reasons to suspect COVID-19.
Positive results are indicative of the presence of SARS-CoV-2. Individuals who test positive should self-isolate and seek additional care from their healthcare provider. Positive results do not rule out bacterial infection or co-infection with other viruses.
Negative results do not preclude SARS-CoV-2 infection. Individuals who test negative and continue to experience COVID-like symptoms should seek follow up care from their healthcare provider. Negative results are presumptive and confirmation with a molecular assay performed in a laboratory, if necessary, for patient management may be performed.
For use under the Food and Drug Administration’s Emergency Use Authorization only.
Test results can be reported through the LUCI secure portal, to relevant public health authorities in accordance with local, state, and federal requirements.
