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.
The Biosynex COVID-19 Ag Test is an immunochromatographic in vitro rapid test for the qualitative detection of SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid protein antigen in nasopharyngeal or nasal swab samples. The test result assists medical staff when diagnosing SARS-CoV-2 infections in patients. The test kit contains all the materials necessary to carry out the test. The test result can be read within 15 to 20 minutes after it has been carried out.
