COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test

With the Coronavirus Test Ordinance (TestV) of October 14, 2020, rapid tests represent a new pillar in the containment of the current COVID-19 pandemic. These tests can be carried out on site by trained professionals and identify the pathogen of COVID-19 and its antigens right after.

For this purpose, a nasopharyngeal swab is taken from the back of the nose (recommended) or throat area and applied to a test cassette. This works according to the lateral flow principle and shows within 10 to 15 minutes whether COVID-19 antigens could be detected in the sample.

  • CE certified and refundable test listed at the Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices according to the Coronavirus Test Ordinance (TestV) under the number AT129 / 20 . Link
  • Implementation on site by medically trained staff,                                                                                                       Result after 10 to 15 minutes
  • Reliable exclusion of a Sars-CoV-2 infection with high accuracy
  • Can be performed as a nasopharynx and oropharynx smear
  • The test is developed as a Point of Care (POC). No equipment is required, all consumables are included
  • Reaction membrane from the German world market leader Sartorius AG.

What effect do mutations have on the reliability of the
Testsealabs COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test?

Lately there have been frequent reports of mutations in SARS-CoV-2, the cause of COVID-19. In particular, a variant from England with potentially increased infectivity is in the foreground.

This raises the question of what effect such mutations have on the reliability of rapid tests and whether an infection with the English variant can also be detected.

According to the current status, detection is just as reliable as with other variants.

Detect a SARS-CoV-2

infection successfully with Lateral Flow Assays

Lateral flow assays are highly selective immunochromatographic assays that work with colloidal gold probes (GICA). They are based on specific monoclonal antibodies and recombinant proteins as a capture reagent. These migrate along a reaction membrane and can thus make antigens visible in the sample.

Test Principle

Unlike an antibody test, the rapid antigen test can directly detect the causative agent of COVID-19, the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2. It detects the proteins of the virus (the antigens). These can be found in pharyngeal swabs when the virus is replicating there. The rapid antigen test is therefore similar to the PCR test, particularly sensitive in the initial phase of the infection. Similar to the PCR test, it can also indicate a virus infection before symptoms appear.

Test Principle

The rapid antigen test will directly detect the causative agent of COVID-19, the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, unlike an antibody test. This detects the virus proteins (the antigens). When the virus is replicating there, these can be contained in pharyngeal swabs.
Therefore, the rapid antigen test is similar to the PCR test, which is especially sensitive in the initial infection process. It may also suggest a virus infection before symptoms occur, similar to the PCR test.
