News

Rapid , non-invasive and accurate

The new coronavirus antigen test kit is a lateral flow chromatographic test using a double staining system for the qualitative detection of SARS-COV-2 (nucleocapside-N protein) antigen in the respiratory tract.
The test contains a conjugated gold colloidal swab and a membranous strip pre-coated with antibodies specific for SARS-CoV-2 antigen on the test lines).
The kit consists of 20 tests and each kit is equipped with 20 swabs, 20 lysis tubes, 20 extraction buffer bottles, 20 droppers 20 readers (cards) and a cardboard rack with 15 positions.
The new rapid test for COVID19 antigen is 35% more sensitive than traditional kits for the detection of IgG/IgM immunoglobulins, it does not require instrumentation and the swab is very delicate during the test on the patient, in fact just insert it in the nostrils for only 2, 5 cm deep and the results will be ready in about 15 minutes, making it a valuable tool for mass screening in different contexts such as schools, airports, ports and in all those contexts where tracking and control are essential to prevent the virus from spreading further within national borders.

ADVANTAGES:

  • Fast and low cost mass screening
  • Quick answers for patients: test results in 15 minute
  • Gentle and less invasive nasal test compared to nose-pharyngeal tests
  • Possibility of use with nasopharyngeal pads
  • Reliable, high performance: Accuracy: 96.0% Specificity: 99.05%
  • Execution at the point of care in a variety of contexts
  • Accessible solution allowing mass screening
  • IVD CE mark
  • The self-contained test tube with "switchable" pad minimises staff exposure
  • The dilution buffer supplied with the product will not degrade the viral ANN
  • The sample taken can be used for RT PCR comparison.
