QuikCheck fFN


The QuikCheck fFN test is an alternative visual-read fFN test for non-U.S. hospitals that cannot use the analyzer-read Rapid fFN test due to unreliable electricity or other resource constraints.

QuikCheck is CE marked, but is not FDA approved. QuikCheck is less precise than the analyzer-read Rapid fFN® test, but is still useful in triage locations where using the Rapid fFN analyzer-read test is not possible. 

A 10 minute visual-read test consisting of:1

  • Sterile polyester tipped applicator
  • Sample extractor buffer
  • fFN test strip

  • No printed test result.
