Speed. Scale. Sensitivity. The keys to ending COVID-19.

Speed and scale

LILIUM’s COVID test offers speed, scale, and sensitivity, but that’s not all.

We’ve paired all the benefits of our cutting edge technology with cost-effective pricing and the ease of self-sampling.

Fast results

LILIUM provides the fastest laboratory RT-PCR diagnostic results in the country. You’ll get your results via email in as little as one hour of delivering your sample to a LILIUM Diagnostic laboratory, where samples are processed and analyzed.

Ultra mass scale testing

We can currently process more than 100,000 samples per day. That’s almost the same volume currently processed by all other RT-PCR laboratories in Canada combined. And with our unique platform, we can easily and rapidly upgrade to millions of samples per day. This massive scale of testing could be deployed to identify all positive cases within an entire community, even the country, within days.

Extreme sensitivity and specificity

In order to correctly detect SARS-CoV-2 in a sample, the Limit of Detection (LoD) of the assay needs to be as low as possible with near 100% specificity. The near 100% sensitivity and 100% specificity of the LILIUM assay at a very low LoD means that the LILIUM SARS-CoV-2 test could theoretically detect SARS-CoV-2 before a person becomes statistically contagious.*

High accuracy and reproducibility

To address the high rate of false positive and negative results found in many RT-PCR testing laboratories, LILIUM developed a new reproducible way of processing samples in a contamination free environment that is 100% automated from start to finish. This novel platform allows for highly consistent and accurate results.

Cost-effective rates

Our standard list prices are cost-effective for individuals, businesses, and community organizations, and we intend to keep it that way.

Our affordable prices reflect our commitment to our community.

How is LILIUM different?

DETECTIng carriers before they become infectors

Current COVID tests are not able to detect and report the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus before a person becomes infectious (contagious). Even for the best available RT-PCR tests, it can take 24-72 hours to receive the test results which means that a carrier may have already passed peak-infectiousness (peak-contagiousness) before they even receive the results of the test.

LILIUM’s next-generation RT-PCR Covid testing platform has been designed with superior accuracy along with rapid turn-around of results. This makes it possible to prevent the spread of the virus by enabling carriers to become aware of their status very early so they can start isolating prior to becoming significantly infectious (contagious). This could eliminate the need for any lockdowns.

extreme accuracy, sensitivity and specificity

Lilium’s COVID testing platform has the capacity to halt community spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus without lockdowns. By implementing Lilium’s testing technology, we can protect our loved ones, communities, and workplaces starting today.

With its extreme accuracy, sensitivity and specificity, combined with its massive scalability and fast turn-around of results, LILIUM could be deployed as a National Shield. All positive cases in a city or an entire country could be determined within days. This means only the positive cases would need to isolate for 2 weeks while the rest of the population and the economy could return back to normal.

The LILIUM SARS-CoV-2 test has been designed from the ground up for convenient self-sampling. We’ve replaced painful nasopharyngeal swabs with a simple mouth swab. In the future, we can also take saliva and mouth gargle samples.*

*Applications are being filed for FDA and Health Canada approval for self-collection kits. At the moment, self-sampling requires supervision by a trained person.
In clinical tests, LILIUM’s screening platform has outperformed the competition across the board.


Detection sensitivity is less than 1 infected cell allowing for detection prior to statistical contagiousness. That’s ~100x more sensitive than RT-PCR assays used by many government COVID-19 testing centres for pooled samples.


The test specifically detects only SARS-CoV-2 and can also detect up to four different variants at the same time.  Any new variants can be added to the test within two weeks.

Low LoD

The higher an assay’s Limit of Detection (LoD), the more likely it is to miss infected persons. LILIUM’s LoD is currently among the lowest, previously available only in a few ultra high performance systems, drastically reducing false negatives.

LILIUM’s massive scale of testing could be deployed to identify all positive cases within an entire community, even a state / country, within days.
