The Illucidx COVID-19 DX Solutions
We are preparing to launch several COVID-19 diagnostic solutions. Our diagnostics share a few common traits.
They use isothermal and do not require temperature cycling
Simpler and faster than qPCR and give a quick yes/no answer as an effective screening tool
Does not utilize qPCR reagents and therefore, does not cannibalize reagants form other tests
Not subject to the same reagent shortages as qPCR during the pandemic
Can work without a formal extraction method
Uses our patented primer design strategy for pathogen detection
High Throughput Laboratory Diagnostics for COVID-19
Illucidx COVID-19 Dx RT-LAMP is a reverse transcription (RT), isothermal, loop-mediated amplification (LAMP) nucleic acid amplification test (NAAT) intended for the qualitative detection of SARS-CoV-2 genetic material (RNA) in nasopharyngeal (NP) swabs from individuals with signs and symptoms of COVID-19 infection. The Illucidx COVID-19 Dx RT-LAMP is intended for use by trained clinical laboratory personnel specifically instructed and trained molecular techniques of RT-LAMP, nucleic acid extraction, and in vitro diagnostic procedures.
Our COVID-19 diagnostic reagent that can utilize equipment commonly found in diagnostic laboratories is ready for deployment as a key component of a Laboratory Developed Test (LDT). We are clinically validating and seeking Health Canada and FDA emergency use authorization. If interested, we can provide the primers, reagents, and consulting to get your laboratory rapidly running loop-mediated amplification to detect COVID-19 without having to navigate the current qPCR reagent shortages created by the global pandemic. Clinical validation data demonstrates that the level of detection using our primer sets approaches that of currently deployed qPCR based tests.
Please see the Instruction For Use (IFU) document for further details and validation data. This diagnostic has been clinically validated and Health Canada and FDA's independent review of this validation is pending.

The Illucidx COVID-19 DX
Illucidx is accelerating the development of our point-of-care diagnostic platform and has joined with industry partners to bring to market a COVID-19 point-of-care test.
We will provide a diagnostic tool that can be taken to remote clinics, be used by EMS at the location of the patient, and can be deployed at ports of entry for screening.
