Alere™ i Influenza A & B
Molecular. In minutes.™
The First CLIA Waived Molecular Rapid Flu Test
Alere™ i Influenza A & B delivers molecular flu results in less than 15 minutes on our unique Alere™ i (Soon to be ID NOW™) platform; making it significantly faster than other molecular methods and more accurate than conventional rapid tests. Rapid diagnostic tests with increased sensitivity are essential for the reliable detection of influenza A and B and enable immediate, effective treatment decisions.1
