    The COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test Device is a lateral flow in-vitro immunoassay intended to be used for the qualitative detection of the SARS-CoV-2 viral nucleoprotein. These devices differ in sample collection method, packaging, and sensitivity. Please speak to our product specialist to determine which one is right for your organization.

    Results and Interpretation

    Want more detail on how to interpret the Health Canada Approved COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test? See our article here!

    COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test Results

    POSITIVE: Both the Antigen test line (T) and the control line (C) are colored in the COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test Cassette.

    NEGATIVE: One coloured line appears in the control region. No apparent coloured line appears in the Antigen test region.

    INVALID: Control line fails to appear. Insufficient sample volume or incorrect procedural techniques are the most likely reasons for control line failure. Review the procedure and repeat the test with a new test cassette.

    NOTE: The colour intensity in the test region (T) may vary depending on the concentration of analytes present in the specimen. Therefore, any shade of color in the test region should be considered positive.

    Insufficient specimen volume, incorrect operating procedure or expired tests are the most likely reasons for control band failure.

    Limitations

    1. This test is recommended for Healthcare professional use only.
    2. The test procedure, precautions and interpretation of results for this test must be followed strictly when testing. Failure to follow the Test Procedure and Interpretations of Test Results may adversely affect test performance and/or invalidate the Test Result.
    3. The test should be used for the qualitative detection of SARS-CoV-2 antigen in human nasopharyngeal swab specimens. Neither the quantitative value nor the rate of SARS-CoV-2 antigen concentration can be determined by this qualitative test.
    4. A negative test result may occur if the level of antigen in a sample is below the detection limit of the test.
    5. Positive test results do not differentiate between SARS-CoV and SARS-CoV-2.
    6. Positive test results do not rule out co-infections with other pathogens.
    7. False-negative test results are more likely during peak activity when prevalence of disease is high.
    8. False-positive test results are more likely during periods of low SARS-CoV-2 activity when prevalence is moderate to low.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    The regulations around COVID testing for travel is highly dependent on the country you are traveling to. While rapid antigen tests may be accepted in some countries, these tests need to be performed and signed-off by a trained individual, doctor, or pharmacist.

    No, these rapid tests do not need any additional instruments to read the results. These test kits are self-contained, containing all the tools you need from sample collection to result reading.

    This test has been designed to act as a supplementary test for suspected cases of negative coronavirus nucleic acid detection or in conjunction with nucleic acid detection in the diagnosis of suspected cases. Results from nucleocapsid protein antigen testing should not be used as the sole basis to diagnose or exclude SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) infection or to inform infection status.

    We carry many brands of rapid antigen kits and some are authorized for at-home testing or self-testing while others are for use by trained laboratory or healthcare professionals. Please check the product description for details. Laboratories are required to report all results to the appropriate public health authorities.
