The Lucira COVID-19 & Flu Test is a single use real-time RT-LAMP test intended for self testing at home for the simultaneous rapid qualitative detection and differentiation of RNA from SARS-CoV-2, Influenza A and Influenza B virus from self-collected nasal swab samples in individuals 14 years and older (self- collected) or individuals ≥2 years (collected by an adult) with symptoms of respiratory viral infection consistent with COVID-19, Influenza A and/or Influenza B. Clinical signs and symptoms of respiratory viral infection due to SARS-CoV-2 and influenza can be similar.
This test is also intended for use at the Point of Care (POC) for individuals with symptoms of respiratory viral infection consistent with COVID-19, Influenza A and/or Influenza B with specimens collected by trained personnel. The Lucira COVID-19 & Flu Test is intended for use as an aid in the differential diagnosis of SARS- CoV-2, Influenza A and Influenza B, in humans, and is not intended to detect Influenza C.
The SARS-CoV-2, Influenza A or Influenza B RNA is generally detectable in nasal swab samples during the acute phase of infection. Positive results are indicative of the presence of SARS-CoV-2, Influenza A or Influenza B RNA; clinical correlation with patient history and other diagnostic information is necessary to determine patient infection status. Positive results do not rule out bacterial infection or co-infection with other viruses. The agent detected may not be the definite cause of disease.
Persons who test positive with the Lucira COVID-19 & Flu Test should seek follow up care with their physician, or healthcare provider, as additional testing and public health reporting may be necessary.
Negative results do not preclude infection from SARS-CoV-2, Influenza A, and/or Influenza B and should not be used as the sole basis for treatment or other patient management decisions. Negative results must be combined with clinical observations, patient history, and epidemiological information.
Is it COVID-19 or Flu?
Now you'll know for sure.
Fever, runny nose, shortness of breath? You can't tell the difference between COVID and flu based on the symptoms alone. Testing helps provide a diagnosis and determine a best course for treatment.
LUCI provides a digital verified test record that you can share with your healthcare provider.
The importance of fast results for effective treatment
Not everyone will seek treatment after testing positive for COVID or the flu. But if you want treatment, timing is important.
Flu treatment works best when started within 2 days of feeling symptoms. For COVID, treatment works best when started within 5 days.
Knowing early, "Is it COVID or flu?" matters. With Lucira, avoid appointments wait times, and lab delays. Get 99% accurate results at home in 30 minutes or less and feel better, faster.

Frequently Asked Questions
The Lucira COVID-19 & Flu Test is a diagnostic test to detect SARS-CoV-2, which causes COVID-19, Influenza A and Influenza B virus. 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.
The two most common types of influenza are influenza A & B. This test tests for both of these types of flu. If you test positive for either influenza A (Flu A) or influenza B (Flu B), you have the flu
Lucira detects all COVID-19 variants of interest and concern, including Omicron and all BA subvariants of concern. Lucira conducts routine surveillance of emerging SARS-CoV-2 strains and will continue to monitor the situation with emerging variants. For the latest variant information, please visit: https://www.lucirahealth.com/technical-brief.
Currently, the test has a 12-month shelf life.
Each test is a single-use and comes with everything needed to run 1 COVID-19 and flu test.
