COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test, 20 Corona Tests, Nose Throat Swab
The COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test provides highly accurate results in just minutes, costs a fraction of a PCR test and saves laboratory capacity as well as 98% of the waiting time for a test result.
These rapid tests enable rapid infection control and are ideal for use in hospitals, nursing homes, airports and border crossings. But also for SMEs, television and entertainment industry and the sports world.
RT-PCR (GGD test ed.) Remains the gold standard for testing for the new SARS-CoV-2 virus. However, it takes at least 24 hours for results to be available. In addition, it is important to be economical with laboratory capacity and test components. This is where on-site diagnostic tests can help. The antigen rapid test costs only a fraction of a PCR test and provides results in less than 20 minutes - a time saving of more than 98%. This closes the diagnostic gap for COVID-19.
The COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test looks for the presence of specific proteins of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Antigen detection thus closes a diagnostic gap. The nucleocapsid protein (N) is ideal for virus detection as it is very abundant in the virus and is sufficiently specific for SARS-CoV-2. It is one of the 4 major structural proteins and is involved in replication, transcription and packaging of the viral genome.
The COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test is a lateral flow chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of SARS-CoV-2 viral nucleoprotein antigens in human nasopharyngeal and oropharyngeal samples. This test is intended for use as an aid in the diagnosis of infections with SARSCoV.
Note that the concentration of viral nucleoprotein antigens can vary over the course of the disease and fall below the detection limit of the assay. Possible infectivity of the subjects cannot be ruled out based on negative test results.
