FAQ

1. What is a COVID-19 rapid antigen test?
It is an antigen test that can be used for point-of-care testing (POCT) to screen for COVID-19. Antigen POCT can be used as an additional screening tool. It does not replace public health measures such as vaccination, symptom screening, physical distancing, masking, and hand hygiene. It does not replace requirements to protect the health and safety of workers.

2. How long does it take to get results?
Results of the Rapid Response COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test can be read at 15 minutes. Results should be read at 15 minutes, but not later than 30 minutes. If any lines show up after 30 minutes, they should not be considered as true results
Please refer to the product insert for instructions on conducting and interpreting the test.

3. What further testing do I require if the result is positive?
If the appropriate test procedure and result interpretation has been followed and the result of your rapid antigen test is positive – contact your healthcare providers. You will need to have a second swab taken within 48 hours with a regular laboratory-based PCR test or a rapid molecular test. This may occur at a designated testing site. The result from this test would confirm if you truly tested positive for COVID-19. Continue to self-isolate while waiting for the laboratory PCR test result.
The results of the regular laboratory-based PCR test is the final test result.

4. What further testing do I require if the result is negative.
Negative results should be treated as presumptive, and do not rule out SARS-CoV-2 infection and should not be used as the sole basis for treatment or patient management decisions, including infection control decisions. Negative results should be considered in the context of a patient’s recent exposures, history, and the presence of clinical signs and symptoms consistent with COVID-19, and confirmed with a molecular assay if necessary.
Antigen test results are never considered final. A negative result is considered final if coming from a regular laboratory-based PCR test.

5. If an individual previously tested positive for COVID-19, should they be tested with rapid antigen screening?
Individuals who have previously been diagnosed with and cleared of COVID-19 infection should resume asymptomatic screening after 90 days from their COVID-19 infection (based on the date of their confirmed positive PCR result).

6. Can I use the test outdoors?
No, the test must be used in room temperature conditions (15~30℃).

7. What if my package is left outside overnight in the cold, can I still use it?
Yes, you may still use the test, bring the test indoors and allow all kit contents to reach room temperature, by waiting for a minimum of 30 minutes. The Rapid Response COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Test has been tested for extreme shipping conditions and its performance has not been impacted.

8. I see two types of buffer – which one should I use?
Buffer solution from the individual single use vials can be used to lessen the risk involved with the pouring insufficient amounts with the dropper. When using the buffer solution from the single use buffer vial please use the entire contents of the vial for each individual test.
