COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Covid Home Test Kits

Overview

COVID-19 home tests (also referred to as self-tests) are one of many risk-reduction measures – along with vaccination, masking, and physical distancing – which protect you and others by reducing the chances of spreading COVID-19. These easy-to-use home tests can be taken in the convenience of your home, and produce rapid results. You can use home tests, regardless of vaccination status, or whether or not you have symptoms. Be sure to follow all instructions provided by the manufacturer in order to ensure accurate results of the test. You should also consider using a self-test before joining indoor gatherings with others who are not in your household.

How the test works

Molecular and antigen tests are types of diagnostic tests than can detect if you have an active COVID-19 infection. A sample is taken with a nasal or throat swab, or saliva collected by spitting into a tube.

The difference between PCR and antigen tests

A PCR (polymerase chain reaction) test is a type of molecular test that often requires a patient sample to be sent to a lab for analysis. Getting results can take anywhere from several hours to days after being received at the lab. A PCR test can sense low levels of viral genetic material (e.g., RNA), so these tests are usually highly sensitive, which means they are good at detecting a true positive result.

An antigen test, or rapid antigen test, detects viral proteins and provides results in less than an hour. Antigen tests tend to be less sensitive than molecular tests, but you are able to get results more quickly.
