HOW IS IT DONE?
An antigen test for SARS-CoV-2 starts with a medical professional collecting a sample of mucus from the back of a persons throat or nose using a swab. They then dip the swab into a liquid to dissolve the mucus and release the virus.
The liquid is then applied to the surface of the test slide that is coated with antibodies. These antibodies are stuck to the slide and “grab onto” any coronavirus proteins that are in the sample.
What are antigens?
Antigens are proteins released by the virus that triggers the immune system to release antibodies
750 pesos only
What are the strenghts?
The main selling points of antigen tests are that they are far faster and easier to perform than reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests.
What are the Weaknesses?
What antigen tests gain in speed and ease of use, they lose in accuracy. Because they look directly for evidence of the virus, there needs to be a lot virus proteins available to stick to the antibodies to produce a detectable result. False negative is therefore a possibility but if done correctly by a trained doctor with proper medical history taking and post-testing instructions, this should be negated.
do i still need a pcr test?
PCR is recommended when a patient has negative results but is experiencing symptoms or has known exposure to a covid positive individual.
