FAQs

An antigen is a molecule that the body’s immune system recognizes as distinct. An antigen test uses antibodies to look for antigens in a sample. They are detected using Antigen Tests, also known as rapid Antigen or Lateral Flow Tests. These tests can be done at home and uploaded and returned with a fit to fly certificate within 60 minutes, since they don’t require a laboratory.
A Rapid Antigen Test and Lateral Flow Test are both a type of diagnostic test that uses antibodies to detect the presence of an antigen in a sample. They both work by using antibodies to detect the presence of an antigen in a sample.

Antigen Tests are quick and simple to use, and they are far less expensive than PCR tests. They are also considered to be very accurate in line with UKHSA studies and evidence conducted. For these reasons, antigen tests are often used to determine if someone is fit to fly and is now becoming a prominent option for use of travel.

This test is easier to administer than a PCR test and provides results in just 20 minutes, as opposed to the regular PCR test that takes 72 hours to provide a result.

During an Antigen Test, a swab is inserted into each nostril. Do this five times per nostril to get a good sample. The swab is then immersed in the liquid to dissolve the Antigen. A reaction occurs on the device’s pad as a result of dripping the solution onto it, which produces a result. To view how to do an Antigen Test on yourself, see the video below. The Covid-19 self-test kit is a nasal swab test for determining whether you are infected. It’s for persons who have symptoms as well as those who don’t. You should, however, follow national recommendations to decide which type of test is appropriate for you.
Antigen Tests work by mixing a sample with a solution that activates viral proteins. That combination is then applied to a paper strip containing an antibody that binds these proteins if they are present. The result, like a home pregnancy test, is shown as a line on the paper strip. There is no need for a laboratory, and the procedure can take only 30 minutes.

Sensitivity and specificity are two terms used to evaluate the accuracy of antigen tests.

The sensitivity of a test refers to how well it detects infection in a person with a disease. Antigen Tests are less sensitive than PCR, which is used to detect the virus in people who are ill, because they have low amounts of the virus in their system.

This means that Covid-19 can be missed in people with lower amounts of the virus in their airways. When an individual has a high viral load, Antigen Tests are more accurate, which is important because they are more likely to spread it. The continuing monitoring for quick Antigen Testing revealed an overall sensitivity of 92.8%.

In general, the more relevant a test is to a specific disease or condition, the higher its sensitivity and specificity. Specificity refers to how well a test can detect a negative result in someone who doesn’t have one. If you don’t have one, having an extremely precise test that has good specificity will ensure that you are correctly identified as not havingthe disease

The specificity of Antigen Tests is very high, meaning that they are very good at detecting people who don’t have the virus. This is important because it helps to stop the spread of the virus. Overall, Antigen Tests are a highly accurate way to detect Covid-19.
