COVID-19 | Nasal Antigen Test (Rapid Test)

testeantigenionasal
About

A new swab for SARS-COV-2 is now available in Portugal, which allows for an even easier and faster sample collection at the nasal level (not nasopharyngeal).


The current sample collection via the nasopharyngeal method requires more expertise from the technician as well as a little more time. 

These nasal swabs are a reliable additional method for collecting respiratory samples for the detection of respiratory pathogens.

Benefits

  • It is fast and simple
     
  • This test doesn’t require complex equipment and the results are ready in about 20-30 minutes, and are delivered within 4 hours. 
     
  • Those who are infected can quickly be identified and isolated. 
     

Limitations

  • The antigen test is less sensible than the PCR test, which is considered “gold standard” by the WHO. 

  • These tests work better with high viral loads, within 1 to 5 days of the onset of the first symptoms.

  • Although false positives are rare, those with low viral loads may experience a false negative.

  • Therefore, the test may not detect infected patients in an asymptomatic early stage and in cases of mild infection.  In both cases, those infected can infect other people. So, all negative results must be reviewed by a health professional in order to assess the need to take a second test using the PCR method.
