Sofia Q Fluorescent Immunoassay Analyzer

FDA Emergency Use Authorization

Sofia Q is a powerful clinical diagnostic device in a very compact size, to be used with Quidel's Sofia SARS Antigen FIA Test Cassettes to diagnose COVID-19. Once Sofia Q is paired with the Sofia Q app via Bluetooth®, it will guide you with simple step-by-step instructions for collecting samples and running the test.

Sofia Q uses advanced fluorescence detection with an ultraviolet LED energy source. Sofia Q collects hundreds of data points on the test strip contained inside the Test Cassette.

The Sofia Q mobile app controls the various functions necessary to perform a test and uses a proprietary AI software model that communicates results from Sofia Q to the app via Bluetooth connectivity. This intuitive app combined with Sofia Q’s portability and affordable price helps enable testing in settings beyond traditional Point of Care.
