Veros™ COVID-19 test now available in Europe

Handheld, instrument-free test delivers lab-quality molecular results – 97.9% accuracy – in about 15 minutes, right at the point of care.

More than 500 million people worldwide have been infected with COVID-19. More cases occur daily.1 The need for fast, reliably accurate, and accessible test results remains a critical unmet need. 

Meet Veros COVID-19. The first and only fully integrated, instrument-free molecular diagnostic test that provides laboratory-quality molecular results in about 15 minutes right at the point of care. Patients don’t have to wait for answers. Healthcare providers can make confident, timely decisions for better care.

Proven effective

One of the most comprehensive COVID-19 diagnostic testing clinical trials conducted to date proved the performance of Veros COVID-192:

  • 97.9% accuracy
  • 95.2% sensitivity 
  • 99.5% specificity

Where the performance of some antigen tests has waned with new variants3-7, Veros COVID-19 has maintained 100% conservation in all Variants of Interest and Concern identified to date by WHO and the US CDC, including Delta and Omicron.

The answer is within reach

Advantages over rapid antigen testing 

  • Over 1000x more sensitive than antigen tests8 
  • On average, molecular tests detect ~30% more true positives8 
  • Studies suggest some antigen tests may fail to detect variants such as Omicron3-7 
  • PCR tests detect virus sooner than rapid antigen tests9 

Fast results 

  • Diagnose and treat within an office visit
  • No waiting for lab results 

Improved throughput 

  • Clinic can run one or dozens of tests at the same time for more efficient patient throughput and productive large-scale testing
  • No service downtime or machine setup – ever 

Greater economy 

  • No capital expense 
  • No need to calibrate, validate, or maintain instruments
