Frequently Asked Questions About COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Self Test Kit
What is antigen testing?
Antigen tests detect proteins specific to a virus that appears in infected individuals, indicating active infection. Rapid antigen testing is beneficial because of its portability, ease of use, and swift time to result.
What is the extraction buffer?
The extraction buffer includes components to dissociate viral proteins from their surfaces as a target for the test. The method of the extraction buffer is used to prepare the test sample by dissolving the virus shell, which also deactivates the virus.
Does the test kit include transport media?
The test kit includes an extraction buffer used to prepare the specimen for testing purposes. The extraction buffer IS NOT transport media and should not be used to preserve or transport samples.
Can the test be used with alternative specimen types such as nasal swabs or any specimen contained in viral transport media?
The Rapid COVID-19 Antigen Test is for direct nasopharyngeal swab specimen only, and the test can only be used with the swab provided in the kit.
Can I collect the specimen and test it at a later time?
The specimen should be tested immediately after collection. The sample can be retained up to 1 hour following collection if immediate testing is not possible. Dispose of the sample and recollect if retained for more than 1 hour.
Can I freeze the device for long-term storage?
The device should never be frozen. If refrigerated, allow the test kit components to reach room temperature before use.
