The COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test Cassette (Nasal Swab) is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of COVID19 antigen in Nasal Swab. The results are used to identify the SARSCoV-2 antigen test within the first 7 days of symptom onset when viral shedding/viral load is at its highest. This antigen is generally found in upper respiratory tract samples during the acute phase of infection. Positive results suggest the presence of viral antigens, but an individual medical history and other diagnostic information are necessary to determine infection status. Positive results do not rule out bacterial infection or co-infection with other viruses. The pathogen identified may not be the exact cause of the disease. Individuals who test positive should confirm the results with a laboratory PCR test, self-isolate and notify their healthcare provider. Negative results from individuals with symptoms longer than seven days should be treated as likely negative. If necessary, confirm the results with a laboratory PCR test. Negative results do not rule out SARS-CoV-2 infection. The SARS- CoV-2 rapid antigen test is intended to support the diagnosis of a SARS-CoV-2 infection. A usability study has been performed with minimum age group of 3-13 years of age. It is recommended that anyone under the age of 18 should be tested by an adult. Age 18 and above can complete the test independently. Adolescents aged 13-17 can complete the test with the help of an adult. Children under 13 years should be tested by an adult.
Warning and Disclaimers:
Please read the instructions carefully before performing the test. The test can only be performed one time. Testing by adult only or under adult supervision.
Negative test results do not exclude infection with SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) .
