OSOM® Flu SARS-CoV-2 Combo Test

How To & Documents

The OSOM® Flu SARS-CoV-2 Combo Home Test was designed with home testing users in mind. The test procedure consists of a gentle nasal swab that is mixed in a ready-to-use extraction solution. After mixing the nasal swab sample in the extraction solution, a test strip is then placed in the sample mixture. In just 10 minutes, you will be able to detect and differentiate between COVID-19, Flu A, and Flu B.

How to use the test.

Carefully read all instructions before performing the test. Failure to follow the instructions may result in inaccurate test results. Refer to the Instructions for Use (IFU) for more complete information.

Step 1

Wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds and dry them thoroughly or use hand sanitizer. Turn over the test kit box to locate the holes on the backside of the carton. Remove the cap from one tube gently to avoid spilling the liquid and place it in the tube holder.

Step 2

Remove swab from the pouch by the stick end. DO NOT touch the swab tip (soft end).

Step 3

Gently insert the swab no more than ¾ of an inch into the nostril. DO NOT insert the swab any farther if you feel any resistance. Slowly rotate the swab at least 4 times against the nostril wall. Remove the swab and repeat in the other nostril using the same swab.

Step 4

Insert swab through the ridges of the tube into the liquid. Spin swab at least 10 times in the liquid. Sample should be processed in the Extraction Buffer as soon as possible after collection and must be mixed within 30 minutes of sample collection. Remove and discard the swab.

Step 5

Open the test strip pouch carefully at the notch. Hold the test strip at the top as indicated.

Step 6

With the arrows pointing down, insert the test strip into the liquid in the tube. Test strip must be inserted into the tube within 30 minutes of completing Step 5. Set a timer for 10 minutes. Leave the test strip in the tube for the full 10 minutes. DO NOT handle or remove. Do not interpret results before 10 minutes or after 30 minutes.

Step 7

Place test strip within dashed area of a Result Interpretation Card included in the kit. Ensure arrows on the test strip are pointing in the same direction as the arrows on the Interpretation Card and that the Results Window is aligned. Look for lines next to ‘CONT’ (Control), ‘S’, ‘B’ and ‘A’ in the Results Window. Look closely! Any faint line at a test line is a positive.

Step 8

If a Control line is not visible at “CONT” after 10 minutes, even if any of the other lines are visible in the results window, THE TEST HAS FAILED and is considered invalid. If you do not see a “CONT” line, DO NOT CONTINUE reading the results. It means your test is invalid. Repeat the test with a new sample and new test kit materials.

Step 9

If the Control line at “CONT” is visible and you do not see a line at “S”, “B” or “A”, it means you may not have COVID-19, Flu B, or Flu A virus. To increase the chance that the negative result for COVID-19 is accurate, you should test again in 48 hours on the first day of testing.

Step 10

If the Control line at “CONT” is visible and any other line or multiple lines at “S”, “B” and/or “A” appear, the test is positive. Note: Any pink/red line, no matter how faint, should be considered an indication of a positive result.
