Rapid COVID-19 Antigen Test

15 min Nose Swab Test – Lateral Flow

Ideal for rapid cost-effective screening and outbreak control to more quickly identify COVID infected employees within businesses and community groups.

One in three people who test positive for Covid-19 had no symptoms so this antigen test is a game changer. Companies can respond quickly to stop the spread, protect their organisation and save lives.

For individuals, the antigen test can give peace of mind as the test quickly tells if you are currently infectious. This helps you to avoid unknowingly infecting others you be meeting up with as restrictions are lifted.

How does it work?

The antigen lateral flow test is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of specific antigens to SARS-CoV-2 present in human nasopharynx.

The antigen test detects proteins which are structural or functional components of a pathogen and are thus very specific to that pathogen. In this case, the test would provide a qualitative “yes/no” answer on the presence of the pathogen SARS-CoV-2 in the sample.

If the target antigen is present in sufficient concentrations in the sample, it will bind to specific antibodies and generate a positive result.

Test to Release

How does the antigen test compare to PCR tests?

Antigen testing is much faster and cheaper than the gold-standard tests that detect viral RNA using a technique called the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) which takes several hours in a specialist laboratory.

The antigen test looks for fragments of antigens within a person’s body to see if they are infected with the virus while the PCR tests can detect small amounts of viral genetic material (RNA), so a PCR test can be positive after a person stops being infectious.

PCR testing also requires complex facilities and elaborate training of operators, thus suffering from limit testing capacity, delayed results typically 24 hours to 48 hours and high costs. Both testing methods identify a current viral infection with the antigen result ready in under 15 minutes. No need for a laboratory, equipment or to wait for results with an antigen test.

A Unique Approach

Testing is one of the most important factors in getting us back to work, school and a normal life.

RT-qPCR is currently the most common method of detecting the virus, however, there are drawbacks to this testing method.

Our Antigen Rapid Test offers results in under 15 minutes and is available as an aid to diagnose the virus that causes COVID-19.

How the Antigen Rapid Test works

The rapid, highly portable, reliable and affordable antigen test is the solution we have been waiting for. It is easy to administer by a health professional.

The Antigen Rapid Test Card works by detecting the presence of viral proteins (antigens) expressed by the COVID-19 virus in a sample from the respiratory tract of a person. If the target antigen is present in sufficient concentrations in the sample, it will bind to specific antibodies fixed to the test strip enclosed in the test card and generate a visually detectable signal, typically within 15 minutes.

The antigens detected are expressed only when the virus is actively replicating, therefore, such tests are best used to identify acute or early infection.
