The Thermo Fisher Scientific Accula system is a rapid diagnostic point of care platform that provides simple, accurate sample-to-answer rapid PCR. 

The Accula System consists of the Accula Dock and Accula Test Kit. The dock is a small, reusable device about the size of your palm that holds a cassette. It plugs into a standard electrical outlet and provides power to the cassette, which contains the components and reagents for viral lysis, reverse transcription, and PCR amplification. The Accula rapid PCR Tests provide reliable, qualitative PCR results in ~30 minutes.

The Accula System workflow is elegantly simple: swab, elute, and follow the prompts on the dock to load the sample and run the test. Hands-on time is ~1 minute, after which you can walk away. The dock notifies you to read the results when the test is complete.

How it works

The Accula System is a rapid diagnostic platform that combines the accuracy of RT-PCR with the simplicity, convenience, and procedural familiarity of traditional rapid immunoassays. The Accula SARS-CoV-2 Test has received an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) from the FDA for the detection of SARS-CoV-2 in Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA)–waived environments. Designed for use with the palm-sized Accula Dock, the Accula SARS-CoV-2 Test provides reliable, qualitative results in approximately 30 minutes.
