COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test
The novel coronaviruses belong to ß genus. COVID-19 is an acute respiratory infectious disease. People are generally susceptible. Currently, the patients infected aby the novel coronavirus are the main source of infection. Asymptomatic infected people can also be an infectious source.
Based on the current epidemiological investigation, the incubation period is 1 to 14 days, mostly 3 to 7 days. The main manifestations include fever, fatigue, and dry cough. Nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat, myalgia, and diarrhoea are found in some cases. Mycoplasma pneumoniae is the causative agent of respiratory tract infectious diseases and complications of other systems.
There will be a symptom with headache, fever, dry cough, and muscle pain. People of all age groups can be infected while youth, middle-aged and children under 4 years old have a higher infection rate. 30% of the infected population may have a whole lung infection.
Coronaviruses are enveloped RNA viruses that are distributed broadly among humans, other mammals, and birds that cause respiratory, enteric, hepatic, and neurologic diseases.
The oral fluid specimen should be collected using the collection device provided with the kit. No other collection device should be used with this assay. Oral fluid collected at any time during the day may be used.
Allow the test, extracted specimen and/or controls to equilibrate to room temperature (15-30°) prior to testing.
1. Remove the test cassette from the sealed foil pouch and use it within one hour. Best results will be obtained in the test is performed immediately after opening the foil pouch.
2. Invert the specimen collection tube and add 3 drops of the extracted specimen (approx. 75μl) to the specimen well(S) and then start the timer.
3. Wait for the colored line(s) to appear. Read the result at 15 Minutes. Do not interpret the result after 20 minutes.
