COVID-19 Product Updates

June 10, 2020

Cue Health received Emergency Use Authorization (“EUA”) from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) for the company’s fast, portable, point-of-care COVID-19 test. The Cue COVID-19 Test is a molecular test that detects the RNA of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, in about 20 minutes using a nasal swab sample taken from the lower part of the nose.

Cue’s COVID-19 test runs on the compact and portable Cue Health Monitoring System. A single-use COVID-19 Test kit includes a Sample Wand and COVID-19 Test Cartridge. The system performs rapid molecular analysis at the point-of-care and transmits test results to the Cue Health App on a connected mobile device. The current FDA EUA allows the Cue COVID-19 test to be used anywhere under the supervision of qualified medical personnel.

Cue ranked at the top of the dry swab tests in FDA reference panel, currently with the lowest level of detection. A lower LoD represents a test's ability to detect a smaller amount of viral material in a given sample, signaling a more sensitive test.

Point-of-care (POC) tests are in high demand in order to facilitate rapid care decisions for patients suspected of SARS-CoV-2. We conducted a clinical validation study of the Cue Health POC nucleic acid amplification test (NAAT) using the Cue lower nasal swab, compared to a reference NAAT using standard nasopharyngeal swab, in 292 symptomatic and asymptomatic outpatients for SARS-CoV-2 detection in a community drive through collection setting. Positive percent agreement between Cue COVID-19 and reference SARS-CoV-2 test was 91.7% (22/24); or 95.7% (22/23) when one patient with no tie-breaker method was excluded. Negative percent agreement was 98.4% (239/243), and there were 25 (8.6%) invalid or canceled results. The Cue COVID-19 Test demonstrated very good positive and negative percent agreement with central laboratory tests and will be useful in settings where accurate POC testing is needed to facilitate management of patients suspected of COVID-19.
