It doesn’t take a global COVID-19 pandemic to emphasize the importance of fast, reliable diagnostic testing for respiratory infections… although the appearance of one certainly has raised the stakes.
At SEKISUI Diagnostics, we’ve dedicated decades to innovating and improving diagnostic testing for various respiratory illnesses because it isn’t a matter of if another pandemic will appear, when—and only through better therapies, tests, and diagnostics- we will be truly prepared for what’s ahead.
An easily transmissible virus with new variants continuously emerging
SARS-CoV-2 is highly contagious and that is passed between people through respiratory droplets. Additionally, new variants of SARS-CoV-2 continue to emerge and circulate around the world. These characteristics create waves of high COVID-19 infection rates.
Stopping the next wave with frequent testing
Rapid COVID-19 antigen testing can be used to identify infection early and to minimize incidence rates in communities and particularly among frequently exposed workers and immunocompromised individuals. Rapid point of care tests are essential to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and resurgence of the pandemic.
Results in 15 minutes with additional 15 minutes of test stability
Indicated for testing within 7 days of symptom onset
Prefilled, ready-to-use extraction buffers
OSOM® COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test
The OSOM® COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test is a lateral flow chromatographic immunoassay intended for the qualitative detection of the SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid protein antigen in direct mid-turbinate (MT) nasal swab specimens collected by a healthcare provider from individuals suspected of COVID-19 within the first 7 days of symptom onset.
Detecting Influenza is a Rapidly Evolving Challenge
Influenza is widely known as the source of the first major pandemic of the modern era—but a lot has changed since the Influenza pandemic of the early 20th century, including the virus itself. Today, detecting Influenza with confidence requires testing that can evolve right alongside the virus.
Stopping the Spread with Reliable, Robust Testing
At SEKISUI Diagnostics, we’ve spent decades innovating and improving the world’s Influenza testing capabilities. With advanced point-of-care testing specifically designed for Influenza, we help healthcare providers and patients see the virus with clarity and take real steps to stop it.
CLIA-waived procedures with results in 10 minutes
Accurate, differentiated interpretation of results
Test and treat patients in one office visit
OSOM® Ultra Plus Flu A&B Test
Test for Influenza A and B in one lateral flow test featuring high sensitivity and specificity, all supported by online training modules and expert technical support.
Strep A Testing
An Uncomfortable Infection with Serious Symptoms
Most people are familiar with Group A Streptococcus as an infection distinguished by painful coughs and a sore throat. But while the traditional visible inspection can sometimes aid in diagnosis, diagnostic testing is the key to confidently detecting strep before it develops into something worse.
Stopping Strep (And Scarlet Fever) With Testing
Left untreated, Group A Streptococcus can sometimes develop into scarlet fever—but with early detection, we can help stop both the progression of the disease and the spread to other individuals. Our diagnostic tests are specifically designed to detect strep early and quickly, helping doctors protect more patients.
Easy-to-read results for in-office testing
Fast & Accurate
Results in just 5 minutes with high accuracy
Includes 2 additional test sticks for quality control
OSOM® Ultra Strep A Test
A color immunochromatographic assay providing fast, accurate results not statistically different than single swab culture.
Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) Testing
A Widely Unknown Virus That is All Too Common
Chances are that most patients have never heard of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), mainly because most people infected recover with minimal medical intervention. However, for infants and older adults, the symptoms of RSV can be quite serious—and, often, difficult to distinguish from the flu.
Protecting the Most Vulnerable with Reliable Testing
Proper and early diagnosis of RSV is key to minimizing the impact of symptoms and, most importantly, stopping the spread to those most likely to be impacted. With reliable, rapid point-of-care testing, we can better identify and treat RSV to protect those most at risk.
Identify RSV and Adenovirus with confidence
Provide easy-to-read results with 3 distinct lines
1 Minute hands-on time; results in 10 minutes or less
OSOM® RSV/Adeno Test
A rapid chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of RSV and/or Adenovirus antigens directly from nasal swabs or nasal suction fluid.
