Rapid Point-of-Need Testing for the SARS-CoV-2 Virus.

Unlike Laboratory or point-of-care tests, ASSURE-19 tests deliver results in just a few minutes and can be done anywhere. The simple test takes no special processing, no advanced equipment, and has no delay for results. Rapid, regular infectiousness tests can enable a safer reopening for schools and the economy.

Research studies from both Harvard University and Yale show that:
  • Rapid result time is far more important than sensitivity.
  • Frequency of testing is far more important than sensitivity.
  • Screening with rapid tests can drive and keep infections down to near zero. A slower protocol cannot.
