Don’t Use This At-Home COVID Test, FDA Warns

Testing centers across the country have become packed due to the Omicron sweeping across the country. So, people have been turning to at-home tests as an alternative. But with the different variety of testing kits on the market, the Food and Drug Administration is now warning us of a brand that could give false positive results.

“Stop using the LuSys Laboratories COVID-19 Antigen Test (Nasal/Saliva) and the LuSys Laboratories COVID-19 IgG/IgM Antibody Test,” the agency urged on Jan. 11 in a news release.

Both brands unfortunately have a “high risk of false results” and are said to have been distributed as at-home testing kits and for lab use, according to the FDA. And they were never “authorized, cleared, or approved” by the agency for U.S. distribution. These at home tests may have also been sold under names including Luscient Diagnostics, Vivera Pharmaceuticals and EagleDx.
