What should I do if all of the lights are flashing on my Lucira test?

If this happens, your results are invalid. Here are some common reasons that cause this to happen:

  • Batteries inserted into the device too early.  Do not insert batteries until you are just about to start the test. 
  • Device moved while the test is in progress.  Do not disturb the device while the test is in progress.
  • Not enough specimen on the swab. Rotate swab 5 times in each nostril and then 15 times in the sample vial as instructed. 
  • Device exposed to excessive heat or cold before use.  Device is stable during typical shipping conditions, but prolonged storage outside of 59-86ºF may affect chemicals in the device
