Roche’s SARS-CoV-2 Rapid Antigen Test is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay intended for the qualitative detection of a specific antigen of SARS-CoV-2 present in human nasopharynx. This test is performed by healthcare professionals using a nasopharyngeal swab collected from a patient. The results are intended to aid in the early diagnosis of SARS-CoV-2 infection. Results are ready in only 15 minutes. SARS-CoV-2 Rapid Antigen Test is performed by healthcare professionals in a number of different settings close to the patient. This is highly beneficial where timely decisions are needed or laboratory testing is inaccessible. The test will help to quickly identify people who are infected and allows better patient management as well as more effective use of healthcare resources.

What is an antigen test?

An antigen test detects proteins, which are structural or functional components of a pathogen and are thus very specific to that pathogen. In this case, the test would provide a qualitative “yes/no” answer on the presence of the pathogen in the patient sample and can be offered as a rapid strip test that is performed at the point of care. If the target antigen is present in sufficient concentrations in the sample, it will bind to specific antibodies and generate a visually detectable signal on the test strip, typically with results ready in 15 minutes. Should a positive result appear you must self-isolate straight away and contact your GP who will arrange for the PCR test. At all times latest government guidance on isolation and quarantining should be followed.
