Rapid Covid Test - what is it and how the test is done

With the pandemic caused by COVID-19 (Coronavirus), the spread of tests and swabs to detect infection from the virus has become the new normal. The Rapid Covid Test or Covid Antigen Test is one of these rapid tests that allows to confirm if a person is positive or negative to COVID-19 getting the result in no time.

How does a Rapid Covid Test work?

A Covid antigen test kit resembles a pregnancy test. This test is performed using a sample from the nose or throat using a swab provided in the kit. The swab with the collected sample (fluid) is then deposited into a test tube and poured onto a self-absorbing pad. The fluid is drawn in through the capillary action from this pad until it is placed on a strip coated with Covid antibodies.

If the person's oropharyngeal sample contains the virus, a coloured line appears indicating the patient is positive.

When you should do a Covid Antigen Test

A Covid Lateral Flow Test is widely used to show that you are not infected when travelling or going abroad. The test may, in fact, be required by airlines before departure.

It is usually recommended that a person takes a quick antigenic swab for Covid if they have one or more suspicious symptoms such as fever, cough, congestion, shortness of breath, muscle aches, loss of taste or smell, diarrhoea, nausea, or vomiting.

Covid Antigen Test FAQs

Unlike PCR tests that require sending swabs to a specialised laboratory, the rapid tests (also called antigens) can return results without being sent to a specialised structure. Some tests provide results even while waiting in less than fifteen minutes. These tests are also known as lateral flow method or fluorescence.

Recently, the European Union has agreed to mutually recognise rapid antigen test/lateral flow tests.

The lateral flow test for Covid-19 is a swab test in which the swab is swept across the back of a person's nose and throat. The swab is then placed into a liquid tube, after which a sample of this liquid is deposited on a small absorbent pad contained within the disposable testing kit.
