The Ellume COVID-19 Home Test is the only home test to use innovative fluorescent technology, previously only used by doctors, to detect COVID-19 infection and generate highly accurate results in 15 minutes. The easy-to-use home test includes a free app that will guide you through the test including an information video and step-by-step instructions.
The sample is analyzed and the unambiguous result is displayed in words on your phone (no interpretation of faint test lines required). Unique sample quality control technology ensures this test will only run when there is enough sample to provide an accurate result, which minimizes the risk of false negative results and reduces the risk of people unintentionally spreading COVID-19. Clinically proven for use by people with and without symptoms, this test is suitable for ages 2 years and above. The test features a user-friendly nasal swab with child adapter to ensure safety & comfort when swabbing children. This test has been designed to withstand mutations to the virus and we have an ongoing testing program ensuring it covers the latest variants as they appear. The test targets a protein in the virus (the nucleocapsid protein), which remains largely unchanged in SARS-CoV-2 variants.
In October, we conducted a voluntary recall of some specific tests when we identified some tests had an increased chance of providing a false positive result. So that our test continues to be one of the most accurate rapid antigen tests on the market, we implemented additional controls to ensure our product meets our high-quality standards. We apologize for the frustration this caused. We have taken appropriate measures so that the product now on shelves meets our highest quality standards.
