LooK SPOT COVID-19 Automatic Test System FAQs

Look SPOT is a low-cost smartphone-based Point-of-Care COVID-19 diagnostic device to detect the SARS-CoV-2 virus using the Lateral Flow Immunoassay. LooK SPOT uses AI and machine learning to detect the colour intensity.

Healthcare responders working in the COVID-19 raid test sites & centres often need to make time-sensitive decisions to determine test results during the time many patients are within their vicinity. The information they draw upon is the Instruction of Use document, previous training, knowledge, and intelligence from colleagues and digital sources. But the tempo, volume, stress, fatigue, lighting, and various other factors can overwhelm healthcare responders when making the visual interpretation of antigen tests for the test results.

Laipac believes it is of paramount importance to reduce healthcare responders’ cognitive load by providing accurate test results in real-time. Laipac’s LooK SPOT AI Cloud can accurately identify the colour response; when human eyes cannot detect the low concentration of viral load in traditional antigen tests. LooK SPOT system is a COVID-19 rapid test solution designed with a tactical edge to fight the good fight.

LooK SPOT was designed for point of entry use. People being tested can be anyone in any location: preparing to travel, returning to work, attending an event. The possibilities & reasons for use are endless. The goal of LooK SPOT is to help for the recovery of the economy and to reunite loved ones.

LooK SPOT System uses the LooK SPOT smartphone-based reader, the LooK COVID-19 Antigen rapid test cassette, and the nasal sample to deliver a rapid diagnosis of the SARS-CoV-2 virus between 5 to 8 minutes using AI. It provides 97.4% sensitivity and 98.3% specificity for SARS-CoV-2 virus detection in the first 8 days of symptom onset. 

LooK SPOT also has a SPEED mode to deliver fast test results within 30 seconds. 

On average, the LooK SPOT app will return a positive test in 5 minutes, and a negative result within 8 minutes.

LooK SPOT can only be used and attached to iPhones or Android Phones.
For iPhone models, we strongly recommend using an iPhone 7 or later.
For Android models, we strongly recommend using phone models 2018 or later with an 8MP camera or superior.
The diagnostic performance of LooK SPOT may reduce if the quality of the camera is not good.

The invalid result is usually when the calibration has been erased somehow.
By redoing the calibration using the calibration cassette, the test result should be either negative or positive.

People who operate the tests can be medical professionals or trained professionals. The process is so simple that anyone can be trained to operate LooK SPOT. Laipac provides training materials and tech support to anyone who seeks to be trained as LooK SPOT operators. 

The LooK SPOT antigen test has two monoclonal antibodies that detect only the nucleocapsid proteins (N) of the SARS-CoV-2, it does not detect the (S) glycoprotein spike. Most vaccines encode for the (S) glycoprotein spike on the SARS-CoV-2, so a person vaccinated would produce only spike protein antigens and only produce antibodies against the spike proteins. Therefore, the nasal swab of an uninfected but vaccinated individual would be negative for (N) nucleocapsid proteins and should work fine as a negative control for the LooK SPOT antigen test. 

The only way a vaccinated individual would test positive in the LooK SPOT antigen test would be if they had an active COVID-19 infection or carrying the COVID-19 virus as an asymptomatic patient.

Somebody who was previously infected with SARS-CoV-2 but with the infection now cleared will also test negative on the LooK SPOT antigen test.

Cross-reaction of LooK SPOT with vaccines:

The tester and patient each require an app; the tester app to carry out the test, and the patient app to receive their results and a pass if negative.

Each test takes an average of 10 minutes from the collection of the nasal sample to the test result. In a heavy traffic point of entry, the collection of nasal samples can be done simultaneously and use SPEED mode to achieve each test result in 30 seconds.

The best amount is between 3-5 drops.

  • Most antigen rapid tests get the test results between 15 to 30 minutes. 
  • Most antigen rapid tests rely on visual interpretation. Multiple data shows sensitivity discrepancies up to 30% when using visual interpretation. 
  • Most antigen rapid tests have detection limits at Ct 18 to 24 and only detects high viral load. 
  • Most antigen rapid tests do not record test results automatically and must be registered by hand.
  • After the data is collected manually, the process of tracing is slow or non-existent. It is a Rapid Test but Slow Trace.

  • LooK SPOT gives you the test results between 5 to 8 minutes. The new SPEED mode can deliver results in 30 seconds.
  • LooK SPOT has 97.4% sensitivity using AI regardless of the operator’s visual skill, location, lighting, mood, fatigue, stress, or fear.

Laipac’s LooK SPOT AI Cloud has learned thousands of images containing the colour response information with different viral concentrations. Our AI algorithm can discriminate the differences of the response in the cassette that cannot be identified by human eyes, which enables highly accurate detection. 

The following images are examples of the colour response of test cases. Test cassettes 1 to 6 are positive test results with different Ct values. Test cassette 7 is a negative test. LooK SPOT can detect low positive cases.

The following image is an example of a low positive with a faint Test line:

Laipac has a reputation for designing IoT and IoMT products to last a very long time. 
LooK SPOT can be used for thousands of tests if treated with care.

There is a SPEED Mode feature in LooK SPOT app. 
The SPEED mode requires the test cassettes to have nasal samples applied 8+ minutes earlier. 

People in the line of a point of entry can scan the cassettes using the LooK PASS app and apply the nasal samples while waiting for the results. 

The operator can insert the test cassette and press SPEED mode to have the test results ready within 30 seconds. The test results will be sent to the patient’s phone, and a QR Pass code is generated if the test result is negative.
