The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for the Qorvo Omnia SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Test. The SARS-CoV-2 Antigen test uses immunoassay principles for the qualitative detection of nucleocapsid viral antigens from individuals within the first six days of symptom onset.
- Low limit of SARS-CoV-2 detection
- 100% Specificity; 89.5% Sensitivity
- Qualified using nasal swabs

Innovative Radio Frequency Technology Aims to Achieve High
Sensitivity and Specificity
Qorvo Biotechnologies brings a unique approach to the health diagnostics testing landscape by leveraging the power of BAW radio frequency (RF) technology—a proven technology currently used in applications you are already familiar with, such as Wi-Fi routers, 5G cellular towers and mobile phones.
It Starts with the Sensor
Probe Signal In The RF signal is delivered to the BAW sensor as the fluid moves over the surface.
Piezo Device Vibrates The sensor resonance frequency is modulated as mass is added to the surface.
Modified Signal Out The RF signal is output to the instrument.
- With BAW RF technology, sensitivity (Limit of Detection) increases with frequency
- Qorvo’s BAW resonates at 3GHz frequency — 3 billion cycles per second
- Sensitivity scales with the square of the frequency, making certain assays capable of 1 pg/mL LOD with BAW
- Changes in mass from surface binding are easily measured through RF detection
- Fundamental technology enables millions of mobile phones worldwide — repurposed as a high sensitivity sensor for use in biotechnology applications
Initial frequency reading under fluidic conditions
Mass is added to the surface causing a frequency reduction
The final output signal can be used to calculate a total frequency shift proportional to the mass binding
Test Cartridge and Reagent Carousel
- Low-cost injection molded cartridge body contains the BAW sensor and a pipette tip
- The foil-sealed reagent carousel contains reagents and wash buffers to reduce non-specific binding—the cartridge acts as a portable laboratory chemistry bench
- The Qorvo Omnia instrument actuates the carousel motion during the test process
