Quidel is maker of InflammaDry and QuickVue Adenovirus Tests
Quidel’s Eye Health solutions, InflammaDry and QuickVue, are rapid, lateral-flow based, point-of-care products for the detection of infectious diseases and conditions of the eye. InflammaDry detects elevated levels of MMP-9, a key inflammatory marker for dry eye. QuickVue is a test that differentiates between the viral (adenoviral) and bacterial form of acute conjunctivitis (pink eye). Both products utilize innovative patented technology, are FDA-cleared, CE marked, and CLIA waived.
