The Thermo Fisher Scientific Accula System is a rapid diagnostic point-of-care platform that enables simple sample-to-answer results with RT-PCR accuracy1,2.

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 facilitate 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 to 2 minutes, after which you can walk away. The dock notifies you to read the results when the test is complete.

The test is authorized for use at the Point of Care (POC), i.e., in patient care settings operating under a CLIA Certificate of Waiver, Certificate of Compliance, or Certificate of Accreditation. This test has been authorized only for the detection of nucleic acid from SARS-CoV-2, not for any other viruses or pathogens. The emergency use of this test is only authorized for the duration of the declaration that circumstances exist justifying the authorization of emergency use of in vitro diagnostics for detection and/or diagnosis of COVID-19 under Section 564(b)(1) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, 21 U.S.C. § 360bbb-3(b)(1), unless the declaration is terminated or authorization is revoked sooner.

* Patient self-collection: On-site, supervised patient self-collection may be employed to reduce risk of SARS-CoV-2 transmission between patients and testing site personnel. Patients may conduct nasal swab self-collection of themselves or a child, as described in the Self Collection Quick Reference Guide. Testing site personnel must provide a physical or digital copy of the Self-Collection Quick Reference Guide to the patient prior to collection. Self-collection must occur on-site, under supervision by testing site personnel. Self-collection is limited to patients 18 years and older. Collection by an adult on a child should only be performed on children 5 years and older. Nasal swabs from children ages 0-4 years should be collected by the clinician.
