What is COVID-19 Antigen test?

Specific proteins in the virus are found using the COVID-19 examination. Some antigen tests can yield results in just a few minutes after collecting a fluid sample using a lengthy nasal swab. Others might be taken to a lab for examination.

When procedures are faithfully followed, a positive antigen test result is regarded as accurate. However, there is a higher possibility of false-negative results, which means it's possible to have the virus but not be sick. The medical professional might advise an RT-PCR test to confirm a negative antigen test result, depending on the circumstances.

Why it is done?

You suffer signals of COVID-19 as a fever, cough, exhaustion, or shortness of breath.

You were in close proximity to someone who has COVID-19. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advise getting tested at least five days after the exposure, even if you don't have any symptoms.

You are not fully vaccinated yet your healthcare provider, another healthcare expert, or your local public health department suggests a test.

Some colleges or places of employment may need you to take a test as part of the screening process.

You plan to be around someone who has a high risk of developing a serious COVID-19 illness, and your community has a medium or high risk of the virus spreading.

What is the procedure for COVID-19 Antigen test?

A medical expert collects saliva, mucus from your nose or throat, or both, for a COVID-19 diagnostic test.

• Throat or nose swab. Although a shorter or very brief nose swab or throat swab is permissible, a long nasal swab (nasopharyngeal swab) is advised. To obtain a sample of mucus, a medical professional inserts a thin, flexible stick with cotton at the tip into your nose or runs the swab along the back of your throat. This could be a little uncomfortable. To get enough mucus for the test, swabbing may be done in both nostrils for the nasal sample. Shortly after being left in place, the swab is gently spun as it is drawn out. The sample is placed in a tube, sealed, and taken to a lab for examination.

• Sample of saliva. Some places provide tests using saliva. While a saliva test is simpler to do and frequently less painful, it may be slightly less sensitive than a mucus sample obtained with a lengthy nasal swab. To submit a sample of your saliva for testing, you spit into a tube numerous times. Before being delivered to a lab for analysis, the tube is sealed.
