Health Canada has approved Quidel's Sofia antigen test for the detection of coronavirus infection in both symptomatic and asymptomatic people.

The nasal swab test is used with Quidel's Sofia and Sofia 2 test instruments. The Sofia Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) Antigen Fluorescence Immunoassay (FIA) test has been shown to perform well within the first five days of symptom onset; positive results agree with reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) tests 96.7% of the time and negative results agree 100% of the time, according to the firm.
