What is Rapid Antigen Testing?
The Rapid Antigen test is a Covid-19 test that does not require a laboratory in order to analyze results. For this reason the results arrive much faster than the PCR Covid-19 test results, which must be sent to a laboratory to be processed.
The Rapid Antigen test is done through a nasal or throat swab and is then placed into a liquid solution where the presence of proteins is searched for. If these proteins are found this suggests a current infection with Covid-19 virus.
How is the Test Done?
In order to get an Antigen test done you must come in to one of our clinics, where a healthcare professional will take a nasal or throat swab. This appointment only takes about 5-10 minutes.
This sample is then tested by looking for proteins (antigens) on the surface of the Covid-19 virus, in order to determine whether the Covid-19 virus is present. The results will then be sent to your email the same day.
How fast are Rapid Antigen Tests?
As the name suggests, these tests are extremely fast and can be conducted by a health care professional in under 5 minutes. Results are then usually issued within 30 minutes of the test being conducted
