SARS-CoV-2 Ag Antigen

Wellion SARS-CoV-2 Ag Antigen Rapid Test

Acute infection visible in only 15 min

The Wellion SARS-CoV-2 Ag antigen rapid test is used to detect a capsule protein of the virus (=antigen), and can thus make an acute infection at Covid-19 visible. The test is carried out by taking a sample from the nasopharynx, and medical personnel evaluate the test in just 15 minutes.   The test is suitable for symptomatic and asymptomatic individuals and   can also be performed on the move without the need for laboratory   equipment. It is ideal for screening people who have been in contact   with people infected with SARS-Cov-2 or people working in a high-risk   environment.
3 types of sampling possible
... Nasal swab (anterior nasal)
... Nasopharyngeal swab  
... Oropharyngeal swab
