The Dutch Government recently conducted an independent study of Rapid Antigen tests. CoviSal’s Rapid Antigen Test, manufactured by Romed, has proven to be one of the most effective Rapid Tests on the market.
It tests and screens for all strains of the Coronavirus including the British and South African strains.
The coronavirus has, on average, a 14-day cycle. In the first couple of days the viral load in the body is low and you may not be infectious. A Rapid Antigen Test may not pick up the virus at this stage. When the viral load increases to where you are infectious, the CoviSal Rapid Antigen Test, produced by Romed Holland, is highly accurate. When compared against other manufacturers’ brands at this point in the progression of the virus, the Romed test performed better than other leading brands. In the final days of the illness the viral load will drop again to a point where you may not be infectious, a Rapid Antigen Test may not pick up the virus at this stage. The ability of a Rapid Antigen Test to be highly accurate when a person is infectious makes it an excellent screening tool in the workplace, the home or in any social or sporting context.
Accuracy of Rapid Antigen Tests is measured by specificity and sensitivity. The CoviSal Rapid Antigen Test tests have recorded the following in independent studies.
- Test Specificity of 99.2 to 100% – Specificity indicates the ability of the test to correctly identify people that do not have coronavirus.
- Test sensitivity of 96.72% to 97.3%. Sensitivity indicates the ability of the test to correctly identify people that have the disease.
