This kit is used for in vitro rapid qualitative detection of novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) antigens in pharyngeal and nasal swab samples. The product is designed to be used for population screening early phase for disease outbreaks. Testing is limited to laboratories certified. Results are for the identification of SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid antigen. This antigen is generally detectable in upper respiratory samples during the acute phase of infection.SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Rapid Test Kit provides preliminary test results, with negative results don’t preclude SARS-CoV-2 infection. Cannot be used as the sole basis for treatment or other management decision. For in vitro diagnostic use only.
