Biosynex Covid-19 Ag BSS Rapid Test
The antigen tests for COVID infection are relatively inexpensive, fast and suitable for Point-of-Care use. The performance of the tests depends much on how they are used. The antigen tests are most suitable when they are used as a diagnostic aid for persons who have recently become symptomatic and the virus load in the respiratory tract is high. Comprehensive evidence on usefulness in asymptomatic infected persons is not yet available.
Biosynex Covid-19 Ag BSS Rapid test is used as support to SARS-CoV-2 infection diagnosis for patients with clinical symptoms. The result should be considered only as an initial screening test result. The result of this test should not be the sole basis for the diagnosis; confirmatory testing is required.
Biosynex Covid-19 Ag BSS Rapid test is a rapid in vitro immunochromatographic assay for the qualitative detection of nucleocapsid protein antigen from SARS-CoV-2 in nasopharyngeal swab specimens. It is intended to aid in the rapid diagnosis of SARS-CoV-2 infections.
