The SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Rapid Test (Nasal Swab) is a lateral flow chromatographic immunoassay single-use test kit intended to qualitative detect the SARS-CoV-2 that causes COVID-19 with self-collected nasal swab specimen. The test is intended for use in symptomatic individuals meeting the case definition for COVID-19 within the first 7 days of symptom onset.
Results are for the detection of SARS-CoV-2 Nucleocapsid protein Antigens. An antigen is generally detectable in upper respiratory specimens during the acute phase of infection. Positive results indicate the presence of viral antigens, but clinical correlation with patient history and other diagnostic information is necessary to determine infection status.
Positive results are indicative of the presence of SARS-CoV-2. Individuals who test positive should self-isolate and contact your State or Territory Coronavirus testing services to get a laboratory PCR test. Positive results do not rule out bacterial infection or co-infection with other viruses. Negative results do not preclude SARS-CoV-2 infection. Individuals who test negative and continue to experience COVID-like symptoms should seek follow up care from their COVID testing centre.
The SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Rapid Test (Nasal Swab) obtain a preliminary result only, an aid diagnosis of COVID-19, for the final confirmation should be based on clinical diagnostic results.
