100 tests/kit


Stop the spread of Coronavirus and make informed decisions using test results to protect yourself, your employees, and students. Our easy-to-use, accurate COVID-19 Surveillance Test Kit detects the SARS-CoV-2 virus within any group, giving you results in one hour.

If an infection is detected, take proactive measures to stop the spread such as:

  • Referring people for diagnostic testing
  • Temporarily closing facilities pending diagnostic results
  • Decontaminating classrooms or workspaces

COVID-19 Surveillance

SARS-CoV-2 is a recently discovered Coronavirus which causes the COVID-19 disease. COVID-19 is most commonly transmitted from person to person, which is especially likely in group settings, where multiple people from separate households are gathered and interacting with one another. Public Health studies have found that one COVID positive person infects one to three other people, on average.

Chai’s COVID-19 Surveillance Test Kit enables you to rapidly detect COVID-19 in classrooms, workplaces, and other high-risk environments where people are regularly exposed to one another. Our surveillance solution is saliva-based, which is minimally invasive and painless compared to nasal swabs, and can be collected with little-to-no training. In addition, our workflow uses sample pooling so you can survey a group of individuals in one run, making routine surveillance cost-effective.

Absence of a detectable virus gives management confidence that school and business operations can continue safely, and can simultaneously provide peace-of-mind to students, parents, and employees as a measure of additional safety precautions.

Positive results can serve as early detection warnings that allow you to proceed with follow-up actions to contain and stop the spread of the virus. Rather than complete lockdown, results can be used to inform individual classroom/departmental closures.
