Covid-19 Rapid Antigen Test
Antigen Test

The Antigen Test, also called the Lateral Flow Test,

is a viral swab test which is conducted using a long cotton bud. The cotton bud is inserted deep into the nose where samples from the nasopharyngeal area are taken. The samples that are extracted during the Antigen Swab Test will then be applied to a rapid method of analysis, which looks for special proteins, or antigens, that would be present in an infected person.

The Antigen Swab test is far better at detecting elevated levels of
antigens in a person infected with Covid.

It is for this reason the Rapid Antigen Test is often recommended for those presenting with Covid-19 symptoms, due to the likelihood of a higher viral load. The Covid-19 Rapid Antigen Test can give reliable positive results in these instances but because of the method of rapid analysis, can also give false-negative results to those with a lower viral load. However, the benefit of this Covid-19 Screening method is the quick return of results which can be obtained within 30 minutes as the test is carried out entirely in house without the need of lab transport or analysis.
