LooK SPOT COVID-19 Test System FAQs
LooK SPOT COVID-19 Test System is a lateral flow immunoassay intended for the qualitative detection of nucleocapsid protein from SARS-CoV-2 in nasopharyngeal swabs from patients suspected of COVID-19 by a healthcare provider with symptoms within the first eight (8) days of symptom onset. LooK SPOT COVID-19 Test System is intended for use in the Point of Care (POC) settings by medical professionals and trained operators in vitro diagnostic procedures.
LooK SPOT COVID-19 Test system was designed for point-of-entry use. People being tested can be anyone in any location: preparing to travel, going to work, or attending an event. The goal of LooK SPOT is to help recover the economy suffered from the pandemic and reunite loved ones.
The LooK SPOT COVID-19 Test System uses a rapid immunochromatographic detection method to detect whether the nucleocapsid protein of the SARS-CoV-2 virus is present in the nasopharyngeal swab samples using specific monoclonal antibodies. LooK COVID-19 antigen rapid test reagent is designed to support the detection of SARS-CoV-2 antigen from nasopharyngeal swabs sampled from patients who are suspected by healthcare providers of being infected by the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The nasopharyngeal swab specimens are transferred to the test strip directly from the extraction buffer onto the cassette sample pad. The lateral flow of the analyte passes through the conjugate pad into the nitrocellulose membrane where anti-SARS-CoV-2 protein antibodies conjugated to indicator capture SARS-CoV-2 viral antigen by binding to the nucleocapsid protein forming a colored immune complex captured by the test line nitrocellulose membrane as it migrates through the strip. The buffer continues to flow onto the absorbent pad until the test is complete. Before performing the test, the test operator must download the LooK SPOT App from Google Play Store for Android smartphones or Apple App Store for iPhones, and register the App. Attach the LooK SPOT to the smartphone following the instructions of use. The patient can also download the LooK PASS App from Google Play Store for Android smartphones or Apple App Store for iPhones, and register the App. The patient can scan the QR code of the LooK COVID-19 Antigen Test Cassette with the LooK PASS App, and the information is uploaded to the LooK SPOT AI Cloud for the registration of the test. This guarantees the patients to receive the test result on their smartphones when the test results are ready.
To perform the test, a nasopharyngeal swab specimen is collected from the patient. Place the swab into the Extraction Buffer tube. Stir the swab in the Extraction Buffer tube for one (1) minute. The virus particles in the sample are disrupted and exposing the internal viral nucleoproteins. After disruption, use the dropper to extract the solution inside the tube and apply three drops in the sample window of the LooK COVID-19 Antigen Cassette. The sample migrates through the antigen cassette containing unique chemical environments. If SARS-CoV-2 viral antigen is present, they will be trapped in a specific location on the test window of the antigen cassette. Insert the LooK COVID-19 Antigen Cassette into the LooK SPOT attached to the phone. LooK SPOT sends the images of the color signal of the cassette’s test window to LooK SPOT AI Cloud for analysis. LooK SPOT AI Cloud analyzes the images using proprietary AI algorithms and sends the test results to the LooK SPOT app. The test result can be Positive, Negative, or Invalid. The test result is also sent to the patient’s LooK PASS App to generate a test certificate.
LooK SPOT can be used with iPhones or Android Phones.
For iPhone models, we strongly recommend using an iPhone 6 or later models.
For Android models, we strongly recommend using phone models 2018 or later with an 8MP rear camera or superior. The tested phone models can be found in the section of Limitations in the IFU.
The invalid result is usually when the calibration step has not been completed correctly.
Redo the calibration using the calibration cassette from the LooK SPOT packaging and follow the Instruction of Use. The test result should be either negative or positive.
People who operate the tests can be medical professionals or trained professionals. The process is simple, and most can be trained to operate LooK SPOT COVID-19 Test system. Laipac provides training materials and tech support to anyone who seeks to be trained to operate LooK SPOT COVID-19 Test System.
Each test takes an average of 10 minutes from the collection of the nasopharyngeal sample to the test result. In a heavy traffic point of entry, the collection of the samples can be done simultaneously and use SPEED mode to achieve each test result in 30 seconds or less.

Laipac’s LooK SPOT AI is a machine learning algorithm that has learned thousands of images with colour response information with viral concentrations. LooK SPOT AI can discriminate the differences in the response in the test cassettes that cannot be identified by visual interpretation, which enables highly accurate detection for low positive cases.
LooK SPOT reader has been designed to last very long and is very robust. It can be used to do thousands of tests when treated with care.
