About Antigen Testing
Antigen testing involves identifying the presence of a protein, which is known as the nucleocapsid protein, which is found in the SARS-CoV-2 virus. This form of testing involves collecting swabs from the nose before it is placed in a special solution and then added to the testing strip.
The test will then deliver results in just 15 minutes that determine whether an individual is positive or not. These tests can then be used to help contain the spread of the virus by identifying those who are carrying the virus, regardless of whether they are symptomatic or asymptomatic. What’s more, the tests have a specificity rate of 99.22% and a sensitivity of 96.72%, ensuring that they deliver reliable results.
