Frequently Asked Questions
The Lucira Check It COVID-19 Test Kit is a diagnostic test to detect SARS-CoV-2 which causes COVID-19. The test detects if you have an active infection and does not confirm immunity or detect antibodies. It is a molecular test that amplifies the virus’s genetic material while the test is running just like PCR lab tests. Lucira’s amplification method provides a level of accuracy comparable to one of the highest sensitivity lab PCR tests.
