Rapid Antigen Test SARS-CoV-2 (immunochromatography technique) is the rapid test that detects presence of Spike Protein (Antigen) in collected mucous membranes. Collecting is of the nasopharyngeal exudate type. Spike protein ( Antigen ) is located on the viral membrane and it is the "arm" with which the virus binds to human cell and infects it.

Rapid Antigen Test SARS-CoV-2 (immunochromatography technique) is the rapid test that detects presence of Spike Protein (Antigen) in collected mucous membranes. Collecting is of the nasopharyngeal exudate type. Spike protein ( Antigen ) is located on the viral membrane and it is the "arm" with which the virus binds to human cell and infects it. Spike protein is recognized by immune system which forms specific Anti SARS-CoV-2 antibodies that will bind to this protein. The sensitivity of our test is 95% ( out of 100 positive patients the test will detect 95 ) with a specificity of 99% (out of 100 positive patients, 1 will be false-positive). WHO, CDC and ECDC recommendations are that any Rapid Ag Positive Test should be duplicated by an RT-PCR test.

  • Recommended test for: symptomatic patients, patients who cannot wait 6 hours for an RT-PCR test, people traveling to countries that accept Antigen Test.
  • Advantages: firm result in 15 minutes from collection; ANALYSIS BULLETIN from our own accredited German Diagnose laboratory (Citobiomed SRL) in maximum 60 minutes from collection (in English); the analysis bulletin is sent by email, contains QR code and is valid at the borders that accept Rapid Ag Test.
  • Disadvantages: lower sensitivity than RT-PCR test; low ability to detect positive but asymptomatic patients (contagious patients);

To support the authorities, Complet Medical is offering a 20% discount for RT-PCR test to any patient detected positive with Rapid Antigen Test.

Note *: Rapid Antigen Test must be collected and performed / analyzed by medical personnel specialized in this regard. Collecting and analyzing / interpreting the test by a person without medical training can lead to false negative results, thus endangering the health of others.
