The Rapid Test for Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus-2 (Sars-CoV-2) that causes Coronavirus Disease 2019 (Covid-19).
Provides a diagnostic in 10 min. Testing all your employees or visitors will help bringing back spontaneity and simplicity of social behaviors within the workspace.
This Rapid Test for Sars-CoV-2 (COVID-19) diagnosis is intended to qualitatively detect both IgG (late marker) and IgM (early marker) antibodies from human serum, whole blood, or plasma in approximately 10-15 minutes. If detected, those proteins indicate that a person’s immune system has responded to infection with the COVID-19 virus.
IgM and IgG are immunoglobulins produced by the immune system to provide protection against SARS-CoV-2. Anti-SARS-CoV-2 IgM and IgG can therefore be detected in samples from affected patients.
IgM antibodies are generated initially by the body because of infection at about the time symptoms appear. IgM will dissipate within approximately one month. IgG antibodies are generated by the body about one week after symptoms appear and last for an extended amount of time.
Control line (needs to be red to validate the test)
IgG positive test: past infection or past contact with the virus
IgM positive test: possible ongoing infection, contact the doctor for qPCR test
Recent studies suggest that a high percentage of patients show no clinical symptoms of the virus, which makes screening patients vitally important. The test can be used for rapid screening of carriers of the virus that are symptomatic or asymptomatic. By using biomarkers from the body’s immune response to COVID-19 instead of looking for the virus itself, the test can help determine if a person has been infected with COVID-19 even after the virus is no longer present.
Definition: COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease 2019) is an infectious disease caused by the most recently discovered Coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2 (2019-nCoV).
Performing the Rapid Test is quite easy but requires a health professional (nurse or doctor) to interpret the results. We have different logistic options to offer. Please get in touch to discuss what will be the best option for your needs.
