What is Rapid Antigen testing?

A COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Test is a lateral flow immunoassay. Embedded into the test strip are antibodies that bind to the COVID-19 virus. A nasal swab is taken from you, by one of our trained staff. The sample is then mixed with specific reagents and added to one end of a test cassette. The sample flows along the test strip and interacts with detecting antibodies. If you have contracted COVID-19 (the Antigen), the biomarkers bind to the virus on the test strip, leaving a visible test line. If you do not have COVID-19 no test line will appear, as no biomarker is present.

The result of the test will be read by our trained staff and can be detected visually. The test gives a qualitative yes/no result within 15 minutes.

A positive test result for COVID-19 indicates that antigens from COVID-19 were detected, you are potentially infected with the virus, and presumed to be contagious. A positive test result is notified to you immediately with the recommendation that you follow Government Guidelines and seek a PCR test as soon as possible.
