Besides laboratory PCR testing, antigen assays can also be offered as rapid testing in near-patient settings. The SARS-CoV-2 Rapid Antigen Test is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay intended for the qualitative detection of specific antigens of SARS‑CoV‑2 present in nasopharyngeal or combined nasopharyngeal/oropharyngeal samples. This test is intended to detect antigen from the SARS‑CoV‑2 virus in individuals suspected of COVID‑19. This product is strictly intended for professional use in laboratory and Point of Care environments. Similar to laboratory instruments, it detects a SARS-CoV-2 antigen, the nucleoprotein. It can therefore be used to assess whether a person is infected with SARS-CoV-2 by providing a qualitative result showing coloured bands indicating the presence of SARS-CoV-2 antigens.
Results are for the identification of SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid protein antigen. Antigen is generally detectable in upper respiratory specimens during the acute phase of infection. Positive results indicate the presence of viral antigens, but clinical correlation with patient history and other diagnostic information is necessary to determine infection status.

Advantages of Antigen Rapid Test
Although the development cycle of antigen detection is relatively long, its
1.Sensitivity and specificity are higher than antibody detection
2.The pathogen can be detected at the initial stage of infection
3.Short TAT and simple operation.
4.No professional technicians and equipment are required, and the test can be completed in 15 min.
