A California startup whose COVID-19 test kits became widely used almost overnight, including here in Los Angeles, has come under scrutiny amid questions about the tests’ accuracy.

L.A. Times reporter Laurence Darmiento wrote about the company’s sudden rise, its stumbles and now, its uncertain future.
