We’re delighted to announce today that Relaymed has launched an interface to the electronic health record for the new rapid point-of-care test from Quidel, to be used with the Sofia 2 Fluorescent Immunoassay Analyzer, for the rapid detection of SARS-CoV-2.

Quidel has received Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market its Sofia® 2 SARS Antigen FIA.

Quidel Sofia 2

Sofia 2 is Quidel’s next-generation version of its best-selling Sofia instrumented system. Sofia 2 utilizes the original Sofia fluorescent chemistry design to provide an accurate, objective and automated result in just 15 minutes — Relaymed will then accurately save the result in real-time into the EHR.

A front line solution

Rapid testing on the front lines is a game changer in the continued fight against COVID-19. Accelerating time to diagnosis in physician offices and urgent care centers is critical to controlling the virus, as these are the healthcare settings where people show up for care.


A rapid solution

To ensure the safety of our healthcare workers, the patient and all those they have been in contact with, ensuring accurate results without delay into the EHR is a must. We cannot let human error sneak in.

This is where Relaymed is helping make a difference. Manual transcription simply won’t do here, it needs to be automated.

Quidel and Relaymed partnership

Relaymed has worked in close partnership with Quidel to ensure that our service fully supports this new COVID-19 test, out of the gate, as the product is shipping now. Our ability to quickly interface this new test is testament to both our partnership and the cloud platform we deploy on.

The team at Quidel have done a phenomenal job to develop an accurate rapid antigen test. We’re delighted to play our part and take results the ‘last mile’ into the EHR for them.

The Quidel Sofia is one of the most popular devices in use by our customers today. So if you’re an existing Relaymed customer, it will just work. If you’re not, we’d love to help.
