The test we are using is the Covid-19 Rapid Nasal Swab Antigen Test, a quick, reliable, and cost-effective way of detecting active COVID-19 infections.
This is a new form of testing for Covid-19. Rapid antigen testing represents a major advancement in helping to bring the pandemic under control. Antigen tests look for pieces of proteins that make up the SARS-CoV-2 virus, helping to determine if the person has an active Covid-19 infection. The test will detect active Covid-19 infections in both asymptomatic and symptomatic patients. Test results are delivered on-site in 15 mins. No need to send samples away for analysis. Unlike other antigen tests, our test looks for nucleocapsid protein making it the gold standard for rapid antigen testing. Highly accurate with >99.9% Specificity, 97.3% Sensitivity & 99% Accuracy.
Results are valid at the time of test only.
