Share Article

In this free webinar, the featured speaker will discuss the impact of providing lab-quality results at the point-of-care (POC) on health systems and how providers have integrated this into their patient care during the pandemic. The science behind next-generation POC testing allowing it to uniquely combine sensitivity with speed will also be explored. The speaker will discuss the clinical performance of the LumiraDx SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Test and its correlation with patient infectivity and the SARS-CoV-2 Antibody Test.

Next-generation POC testing, different from traditional lateral flow tests, has proven its ability to deliver highly sensitive COVID-19 test results within minutes.

How advancements in POC testing have impacted health systems

COVID-19 exposed tremendous gaps in health systems and access to testing. Importantly, it also showed the need for rapid and reliable testing in order to safely reopen schools, return to the workplace and reopen the economy.

In this webinar, LumiraDx Chief Innovation Officer Dr. Nigel Lindner, PhD, will review the impact of next-generation point-of-care (POC) testing during the pandemic, and beyond, and explain the science powering this testing technology.

Moving testing from huge, central laboratories to rapid, portable devices has been a pivotal change in medical technology. Previously, testing performance and speed were at odds, but because of recent technological advancements, it’s now possible to deliver both. Next-generation POC testing, different from traditional lateral flow tests, has proven its ability to deliver highly sensitive COVID-19 test results within minutes.

Join the live webinar on Friday, May 28, 2021 at 10am EDT (3pm BST/UK) to learn the science behind next-generation POC testing and how providers have integrated this into their patient care during the pandemic.
