Covid-19 Rapid Antigen Test: what it is and how it works.
The Covid-19 Rapid Antigen Test is a screening test that allows the identification of antigens of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
It is performed from an upper airway (rhino-pharyngeal) swab and results are provided within the day. The Covid-19 Rapid Antigen Test has high sensitivity and specificity performance and provides a positive or negative result.
Covid-19 Rapid Antigen Test: Negative Result.
The negative result suggests that the body may not have been exposed to the virus to date, but it is still susceptible to infection if it comes into contact with the virus after the test.
Covid-19 Rapid Antigen Test: Positive Result.
The positive result detects the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 antigen in the body; in this case the patient will have to carry out the molecular swab, which remains the reference test for the diagnosis of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. and observe a period of self-isolation until the result of the molecular test.
