The Next Generation in Rapid Testing... Sofia is the brand name for Quidel's next generation, rapid, immunofluorescence, point-of-care diagnostic test system. Whether you are trying to improve patient care and physician services, or reduce your dependency on expensive equipment, Sofia can meet the challenges of your lab.

Sofia, a small bench-top analyzer, offers rapid, highly accurate and reliable results for centralized testing locations by integrating a unique fluorescent chemistry, quality control and fail safe measures, and connectivity to your lab electronic medical records.


Available Kits

Sofia SPneumoniae  cat.# 20293
The Sofia S. Pneumoniae Fluorescent Immunoassay (FIA) uses advanced immunofluorescence-based lateral-flow technology to detect Streptococcus pneumonia cell wall polysaccharide (CWPS) antigen in human urine of patients with pneumonia and in cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) specimens of patients with meningitis.

Sofia Legionella  cat# 20244
Quidel’s Sofia Legionella FIA takes lateral flow to a whole new level, utilizing advanced immunofluorescence technology intended for the rapid qualitative detection of Legionella pneumophila Serogroup 1, directly from urine specimens.

Sofia Influenza A+B  cat.# 20254
Quidel’s Sofia Influenza A+B FIA takes lateral flow to a whole new level, utilizing advanced immunofluorescence technology to detect influenza A and influenza B viral nucleoprotein antigens. You no longer have to choose between accurate results and fast turnaround time.

Sofia RSV  cat.# 20242
Quidel’s Sofia RSV FIA takes lateral flow to a whole new level, utilizing advanced immunofluorescence technology intended for the rapid qualitative detection of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) nucleoprotein antigen directly from nasopharyngeal swab and nasopharyngeal aspirate/wash specimens. This test, used with the Sofia Analyzer, allows you to rapidly diagnose and treat in the same visit.

Sofia Strep A+  cat.# 20276
Quidel’s Sofia Strep A+ FIA takes lateral flow to a whole new level, utilizing advanced immunofluorescence technology with the Sofia Analyzer. This is a test intended for the rapid qualitative detection of Group A Streptococcal antigens from throat swabs of symptomatic patients. With results available in minutes, you can rapidly diagnose and treat, all in the same visit.

Sofia hCG  cat.# 20229
Sofia hCG Fluorescent Immunoassay (FIA)
, with Kinetic CheckTM technology uses advanced immunofluorescence-based lateral-flow technology to detect human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) in urine specimens. Sofia hCG FIA uses monoclonal antibodies specific to the beta subunit of hCG to capture and detect hCG, which enhances specificity as the alpha subunit of hCG is nearly identical to the alpha subunit found in LH, FSH and TSH.
