Genrui COVID Antigen Test Kit (Colloidal Gold) - Self-testing
If you get a positive result from a rapid antigen test — or a negative result, but still have symptoms — please follow the guidance from your local State or Territory Health Department for guidance on confirmation testing if necessary and if unwell please seek medical assistance.
By now, you’re probably used to images of people queuing outside a clinic for a COVID test. They’re waiting for a PCR (polymerase chain reaction) test. If you have even the mildest COVID-19 symptom you should get one too.
Rapid antigen tests (RATs) are different. The good news is they’re quick, convenient and can sometimes detect COVID-19 even before you develop symptoms. You can do the test yourself at home or anywhere you feel comfortable. However, they’re not as accurate as PCR tests.
Both types of test are designed to detect COVID-19 in your body, and involve a swab sample taken from your throat or nose, on nasal secretions (‘snot’), or sometimes on saliva.
- Simple to use by lay person or healthcare worker at anytime, anywhere without additional equipment.
- Fast reaction time to identity potential positive cases to help flatten the curve.
- Good sensitivity and perfect specificity compared to traditional PCR test results.
