The QuickVue At-Home OTC COVID-19 Test is fast, simple, and easy-to-use designed with at-home users in mind. Intended to be used twice over 2 to 3 days with at least 24 hours – no more than 36 hours – between tests, the test uses a gentle nasal swab sample to determine a positive or negative COVID-19 test result. The swab is swirled in a tube of reagent solution, then removed before a test strip is inserted. After 10 minutes, take the strip out of the tube to see your results.
