How it works

The Talis Biomedical One workflow takes you quickly and efficiently from sample-to-answer in three easy steps.

  1. Label cartridge with patient ID.
  2. Add specimen to cartridge and insert into instrument.
  3. Report results in < 30 minutes.

Triage with confidence, without the wait

An easy-to-use sample-to-answer workflow and small instrument footprint bring all the benefits of molecular testing to a variety of care settings, maximizing the impact of testing on patient health and the containment of disease spread.

The Talis Biomedical One COVID-19 Test System uses proprietary technology to deliver Nucleic Acid Amplification Test (NAAT) results quickly. Unlike other rapid point-of-care COVID-19 tests4 that may not be as sensitive, the Talis Biomedical One COVID-19 Test System is able to achieve central lab-quality detection of SARS-CoV-2 demonstrating PPA of 95.7% and NPA of 100% in a clinical study.5 With our on-cartridge sample extraction and purification and other proprietary technologies, the Talis Biomedical One COVID-19 Test System achieves a limit of detection (LOD) of 500 copies/mL.5

  • Delivers rapid and accurate, easy-to-use lab-quality diagnostic testing results across a variety of care settings including non-acute, CLIA-waived settings in point-of-care facilities, pharmacies, and public health clinics.
  • Targets SARS-CoV-2 N and ORF1ab genes for inclusivity of variants.
  • Includes human beta-actin as a sample processing control.

  • Add samples to a fully self-contained cartridge.
  • No precision pipetting required.
  • Automated sample extraction, purification, amplification, detection, and analysis.

  • Hands-on time less than 2 minutes.
  • Goes from sample to results in less than 30 minutes.
  • Reliable NAAT results are clearly displayed and actionable.

Talis Biomedical One Covid-19 Cartridge

The Talis Biomedical One COVID-19 Test System uses isothermal technology, and proprietary on-cartridge extraction and purification to achieve the fast RNA amplification to make the SARS-CoV-2 virus detectable in nasal mid-turbinate swab specimens from individuals suspected of COVID-19 by their healthcare provider.

Test to Treat

To keep life moving forward, our path out of the pandemic is to test, treat and protect our loved ones against new transmissible COVID-19 variants and decrease the risk of the most severe outcomes.

The Talis Biomedical One™ COVID-19 Test System is a rapid point-of-care COVID-19 test that enables highly sensitive SARS-CoV-2 RNA detection from nasal mid-turbinate swabs in less than 30 minutes. With its dual-gene target design, test sensitivity and inclusivity of variants is optimized.3
