RTK Antigen Test is a rapid test to detect specific antigens of SARS-CoV-2 present in human saliva. This test kit is user-friendly, non-invasive and the best part is that it can be self-administered1.
Below is a simple 6-step guide on how to use the RTK Antigen Saliva Test Kit2:
One red line appears in “C” region and no red line appears on “T” region
Two distinct red lines appear in “C” and “T” Region
No coloured lines appear, or a line appears only on “T” region
Therefore, due to its limitation in detection range and sensitivity, RTK-Antigen test is used as a screening test and RT-PCR is used as confirmatory test to define a Covid-19 case.
Don’t Forget To Adhere To SOP
No matter what the results are, be sure to adhere to the SOP at all times to protect yourself as well as our loved ones around us. We can do it by:
1. Maintain social distance by staying at least one meter away from another person
2. Wear masks at all times
3. Wash or sanitize hands frequently.
4. Avoid crowded places and only go out when necessary (eg: grocery)
Let’s work together and do our part in stopping the spread of Covid-19.
