Rapid antigen at the point of care – How it works
The CLINITEST Rapid COVID-19 Antigen Test is easy to administer and delivers results quickly using either the nasopharyngeal swab or nasal swab method. Once a sample is collected, the swab is inserted into a tube with special liquid to extract the target molecule. This liquid is then dispensed onto a test cartridge and, in 15 minutes, a positive or negative result is clearly indicated.
Nasal specimens can be collected by a healthcare professional or by a layperson under the direct supervision of a healthcare professional.
