The COVID-19 Ag antigen rapid test (Sugentech SGTi-flex COVID-19 Ag) detects the antigen of the virus in case of infection. This test method is less sensitive than PCR but it is faster, so it is used to detect the presence of virus in the early stages of the disease.
Please note that the rapid test is not suitable instead PCR tests requested by the authority (eg for getting out of quarantine or as preoperative examination).

How to prepare for the test?
No fasting is required, but smoking should be avoided for 1 hour prior to the test.
How is the test carried out?
The test is performed via a sample taken from the nose.
How long does it take to get the results?
You can download your test results from our online customer service interface on the day of sampling, after validation.
What happens if the result is positive?
The result can be “negative”, “positive”, or “sample cannot be evaluated”.
In the case of a "positive" test result, a PCR test should be considered as further confirmation.
A “negative” result does not completely rule out the presence of infection. In case of suspicion of COVID, PCR testing is strongly recommended.
If the test result is “sample cannot be evaluated”, further testing is required.
