How does the test work?2021-08-09T15:13:25+00:00

The sample is taken using a nose swab. The swab is then put into a test tube filled with a buffer solution so that any virus particles are washed out. A test strip is then used to determine the results. The test is negative if one line appears on the strip and positive if two lines appear.  Its very simple and non intrusive.

How reliable is the test?2021-08-09T15:13:50+00:00

Our test is approved by the German Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices. According to the manufacturer, the antigen test has a clinical sensitivity of 98.5% and a clinical specificity of 99.3%. The sensitivity rating indicates whether everyone with the virus is correctly identified as having the virus. The specificity rating indicates whether everyone who does not have the virus is correctly identified as not having the virus. It is, however, important to note that the concentration of antigens may fluctuate as the illness progresses and may be below the antigen test’s detection limit. A negative test result can therefore not completely rule out a possible infection.

How soon will i receive my results?2021-08-09T15:20:54+00:00

Once you have been tested, you will receive your certificate within a few minutes of your test result.  Tests can take up to 15 minutes to receive a negative result, so be patient.

Once you have a negative result, your tester will issue the certificate immediately. You will receive them by email and SMS within a few seconds.

What is the sensitivity and specificity of the test?2021-08-09T15:21:38+00:00

According to the manufacturer’s information, the antigen test has a sensitivity of 96.6% and a specificity of 99.9%. This information is provided in your results report. Sensitivity is the ability of the test to detect COVID-19 in a diseased subject. Specificity is the ability of the test to give a negative result in a healthy subject.

Can I travel with a negative test result?2021-08-09T15:21:59+00:00

¿Por qué debería hacer la prueba rápida de antígeno del SARS-CoV-2?2021-08-10T05:21:48+00:00

Para comprobar rápidamente si es infeccioso para los demás, para prevenir riesgos para la salud de los demás. Con resultados en 15-
En 20 minutos esta prueba confirmará si usted es un riesgo para los demás y le permitirá saber si está infectado por el SARS-CoV-2.
Los centros de trabajo y otras organizaciones se beneficiarán de las pruebas periódicas para asegurarse de que no corren el riesgo de
infectándose unos a otros.

How does the rapid test work?2021-08-10T05:22:23+00:00

La prueba es un inmunoensayo de flujo lateral y funciona de forma similar a una prueba de embarazo. Embebido
en la tira reactiva son anticuerpos que se unen a un biomarcador específico del SRAS-CoV-2, la inmunoglobulina G (IgG), y
otro biomarcador de infección, la inmunoglobulina M (IgM). Cuando se añade una muestra a un extremo de la prueba, ésta fluye a lo largo de la tira reactiva e interactúa con estos anticuerpos. Si el paciente ha contraído el SARS-CoV-2, los biomarcadores de su sangre se unirán a los anticuerpos de la tira reactiva, dejando un
línea de prueba visible. Si el paciente no tiene SARS-CoV-2, no debe haber biomarcadores en su sangre y
no será visible ninguna línea de prueba. Hay líneas de prueba separadas para IgG e IgM y sólo una tiene que ser visible para
un resultado positivo.

What happens if I test positive?2021-08-10T05:25:41+00:00

Don’t panic.  We will offer you a PCR test to confirm that you have the virus.  Please bear in mind that it can take over 24 hours to receive your PCR results.  This means that if you have a flight to catch then you should have the rapid test 3 days before your flight.

This allows you to still make your flight if you test negative from the PCR test.

If the PCR test comes back positive then you will be asked to quarantine for 10 days and then test again.  Once you have a negative test result you will be allowed to fly home.

Sí, no hay ningún daño para la madre o el bebé al realizar una prueba.

¿Tiene la prueba la marca CE? ¿Tiene la certificación IVD?2021-08-10T05:37:13+00:00

Sí, la prueba del SARS-CoV-2 tiene la marca CE para uso profesional y, por lo tanto, es un dispositivo IVD registrado.
