Rapid Antigen Test

Rapid Antigen Test for COVID19 | Sarjapur Road

An antigen test reveals if a person is currently infected with a pathogen such as the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Once the infection has gone, the antigen disappears. Unlike the RT-PCR COVID19 test, the COVID Antigen test detects the presence of proteins found on the surface of SARS-CoV-2 virus.

The COVID Antigen test results are rapid and relatively cheap compared to RT-PCR and the Antibody test. They are highly amenable for Point-of-care (PoC) use and are suitable for testing in communities like societies, apartments, corporate offices, manufacturing facilities, etc

Rapid Antigen Test is used for fast detection of the coronavirus, used in early detection of COVID-19 and quick containment. It is approved by ICMR and recommended in combination with gold standard RT-PCR test. If the antigen test shows a positive result, it is considered as true positive, and does not need reconfirmation.

How Does the Rapid Antigen Test Work?

A swab from the nose is collected for this test, where there’s a high likelihood of virus particles being present. The swab is then dipped in a solution that inactivates the virus and then transferred onto a test strip. The test strip houses antibodies that bind to coronavirus proteins and holds them in place as the fluid spreads.

 

If the sample is positive for coronavirus, coloured lines will show up on the paper strip in 15-20 minutes.

Antigen tests are very specific for COVID19, but are not as sensitive as molecular PCR tests. “This means that positive results from antigen tests are highly accurate, but there is a higher chance of false negatives, so negative results do not rule out infection. Hence, negative results from an antigen test may need to be confirmed with a PCR test prior to making treatment decisions or to prevent the possible spread of the virus due to a false negative.

This test may not be helpful if you:

  • Currently have COVID-19 symptoms. These include, but are not limited to, fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, and diarrhoea
  • Have tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 10 days
  • Have come in close contact with an individual confirmed or suspected to have COVID-19 in the last 10 days

You can consult our physician over tele-consultation and assess your symptoms and give an appropriate diagnosis.
