Overview for Access Bio RCPM-00271 Carestart COVID-19 Antigen Home Rapid Self-Test - 2/bx

The Access Bio Carestart COVID-19 Antigen Home Rapid Self-Test is a non-invasive and easy to use antigen test, used for home use or point-of-care testing, to determine active covid-19 infection in a patient through nasal (nares) swabbing. Fast and precise results can be obtained within 10 minutes, which can greatly help individuals and healthcare professionals be aware of the situation, and provide proper diagnosis and action.

Simple & Efficient: This COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test was made by Access Bio to quickly detect Sars-CoV-2 nucleocapsid protein antigen in a person. Any symptomatic patient, ages 2 and above, within the first 7 days of their symptoms, can be tested. This Antigen Self-Test can also be used in an individual without symptoms or have other epidemiological reasons to suspect Covid-19, when tested twice over three days (with a 24 hours interval). Its sensitivity is 87.2 percent while specificity is 100 percent.

Quick & Easy to Use: The sample can be obtained, either self-collected or adult-collected, by brushing the nasal swab 5 times against the inner wall of both nostrils of a patient. You can effectively get a sample just by inserting 1/2 to 3/4-inch of the swab inside the nose, since this test kit promotes optimal comfort for the user. The specimen is then mixed with the solution inside the extraction vial, thoroughly mixing 5 times to make sure that all the samples collected are incorporated with the buffer solution. Simply put 3 drops of the solution in the sample well of the kit’s test cassette, and wait for 10 minutes. 

Accurate & Fast Result: Please take note that accurate results will be shown 10 minutes after applying the sample and should not exceed 15 minutes to avoid reading false positive or negative results. A solo purple horizontal mark on the "C" (control) area depicts that you have a negative result, while a positive result shows two colored marks for the "C"  and "T" (test) zones. Invalid results show no lines on the "C" zone. 

Digitally-Accessible Rapid Test: You can administer this Home Rapid Test with the help of its mobile application, which can be downloaded through your mobile’s App Store or on the provided QR code in the package box and the User Manual. The On/Go Mobile Application has an in-app self-paced step-by-step instructions on how to administer the Carestart COVID-19 Antigen Home Rapid Self-Test in the comfort of your home.
