MagnifEye COVID-19

A COVID-19 app incorporating rapid and accurate reading of diagnostic tests

Assists users and health professionals to perform diagnostic tests and share results, helping to keep workplaces, events and communities safe.

The app includes powerful machine learning algorithms that can interpret test results beyond the human visible spectrum1 in under two seconds, supporting the accurate reading of COVID-19 diagnostic tests.

A proven tested technology

NHS Digital conducted a pilot study in April 2021 that tested the MagnifEye image reading algorithm on over 100,000 real world cases. The results of the pilot study1 show:

MagnifEye increased sensitivity (the ability to identify positive tests correctly) to 97.6% and specificity (the ability to identify negative tests correctly) to 99.99% in reading lateral flow tests, as compared to a human reader.

Overall accuracy

A significant proportion of positive cases that were previously missed by users or trained lateral flow test readers were detected by MagnifEye. At Assisted Testing Sites (ATSs) the algorithm identified 24.4% of true positive tests that were missed by trained operators.

Ongoing use of this algorithm is anticipated to support the Government in identifying positive cases with low viral loads which might otherwise be missed via human read and improve objective reading of tests by supporting the visually impaired or anxious in interpretation of their COVID lateral flow results.

How it works

User guidance and instructions

Supports self-testing with embedded training videos and questions.

High quality image capture

Image capture software identifies the test and performs automated quality control for high quality images.

Reduces risk of human error

Algorithms read the test result beyond the human visible spectrum1 and return a result in <2 seconds.

Manage health status for others

Allows family and carers to upload and manage testing status for others in-app.

Includes digital certificate

Digital COVID-19 status certificates to enable access to workplaces, venues, travel etc.

PCR testing supported

Test results can be transferred from laboratory direct to app.

Near real-time visibility for organisations

Dashboard analytics provide enterprise-level oversight of individual and aggregated health status.

Potential benefits

Supports HCP-assisted testing programs

HCPs can use the app to perform high volume testing at multiple sites and to share the results quickly and securely to the test subject’s app and enterprise dashboard.

Near real-time visibility of population health

Organisations have a near real-time view of their employees’ results, helping them understand the status of cases at any point to implement and manage disease-control measures.

Custom app development

A team of experienced app developers and machine learning specialists can customise your branded app to specific test and data capture requirements.

Supports greater test usage

Easy to follow instructions with visual guides help those who may otherwise find it difficult to take and read a test.

Developed and tested for real-world use

Advanced machine learning algorithm identifies and reads tests to a high degree of accuracy, excelling in real-world image capture conditions (e.g. poor lighting).

Secure Azure cloud environment

Data is domiciled in country of origin, encrypted and held in secure cloud storage with robust cyber security.

Fully compliant with standards

Developed under a quality management system certified to ISO13485:2016.

GDPR compliant, ensuring high level of protection for personal data.

ISO27001 certification to ensure information security and governance requirements are fully met.

MagnifEye COVID-19 app is aimed at

Occupational health providers looking to reduce paperwork and improve infection control.
Employers wanting to maintain a safe working environment.
Lateral flow manufacturers looking to support usage of their applications.
Event managers and businesses looking to safely re-open their services.
