Product Details
About the Cue COVID-19 External Control Swabs Pack:

The Cue COVID-19 External Control Swabs Pack contains positive and negative control swabs that are used for external quality control with the Cue COVID-19 test and the Cue Reader (both sold separately).

Each Cue COVID-19 External Control Swabs Pack contains three (3) Cue COVID-19 Test Positive Control Swabs and three (3) Cue Test Negative Control Swabs. Similar to the standard COVID-19 test, results from the Control Swabs are delivered to a mobile device in 20 minutes and the Cue Dashboard (if applicable) via the Cue Health App.

Cue recommends that a Negative Control Swab and a Positive Control Swab be run:
  • Once for each new lot of cartridge packs received
  • When problems with testing are suspected or identified
  • Alternatively, as deemed necessary in order to conform with your internal quality control procedures, with local, state and/or federal regulations, or accrediting groups

  • If correct control results are not obtained, repeat the test using a new Control Swab, and a new Test Cartridge. If the control testing continues to fail, do not perform additional clinical specimen tests or report results. Contact Cue Health Customer Support at support@cuehealth.com or call toll-free at 833.CUE.TEST (833.283.8378) before testing additional clinical specimens.
