As-Check SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Rapid Test

What is the Covid-19 antigen rapid test?

Covid 19 antigen rapid test is used for the qualitative detection of novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) antigen in the sample, only for in vitro diagnostic use. The novel coronaviruses belong to the β genus. SARS-CoV-2 is an acute respiratory infectious disease. People are generally susceptible. Currently, the patients infected by the novel coronavirus are the main source of infection; asymptomatic infected people can also be an infectious source. Based on the current epidemiological investigation, the incubation period is 1 to 14 days, mostly 3 to 7 days. The main manifestations include fever, fatigue, and dry cough. Nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat, myalgia, and diarrhea are found in a few cases.

The antigen is generally detectable in upper respiratory specimens during the acute phase of infection. Rapid diagnosis of SARS-CoV-2 infection will help healthcare professionals to treat patients and control the disease more efficiently and effectively.
