About RT-LAMP Tests

An RT-LAMP test is used to diagnose whether a person has an ongoing infection with COVID-19 by searching for genetic material from the virus. It is the same kind of test as a PCR test, but uses a slightly different and faster method for testing.

What distinguishes a LAMP test from rapid tests is that a laboratory is needed to obtain the result. This means that it takes longer to get the result, but also that it is safer and more accurate.

Our LAMP tests are performed with a swab via the nose down to the throat. We have a laboratory at our testing center which makes it possible to get the results more quickly.

Test specifications:

  • CE Approved

OptiGene SARS-CoV-2 Test

  • Sensitivity: 94%
  • Specificity: 99%

It is important to get tested in case of suspected infection to reduce the spread and burden on society, as well as make it easier for your fellow human beings. We make it possible for you to quickly and easily get tested to see if you have an ongoing COVID-19 infection.
