Sahpra approved Rapid Antigen testing in Johannesburg

The Sarpra and World Health Organisation approved COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test is a rapid assay for the qualitative detection of SARS-CoV-2 antigens in nasopharynx specimens

Principle of the Test

COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test is a rapid membrane-based lateral flow immunoassay for the qualitative detection of SARS-CoV-2 antigens in human nasopharyngeal swab specimens. During testing SARS-CoV-2 antigens possibly present in the specimen react with the antibody-coated nanoparticles present in the test. The resulting complex chromatographically migrates upward in the strip membrane by capillary action.
If the specimen contains SARS-CoV-2 antigens, they will bind to the SARS-CoV-2 antibodies coated on the (T) Test line region and generate a colored line on the test strip, indicating a positive result. If the antigens are not present in the specimen, no colored line will appear in the (T) Test line region, indicating a negative result. As a procedural control, a colored line will always appear in the (C) Control line region, indicating that the test procedure has been performed properly and that test components have operated as intended.

Why using a COVID-19 antigen test?

The use of a COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test allows to detect the presence of SARS-CoV-2 virus antigens in our body and to take initial precautionary isolation measures in order to reduce further spread of the virus.

What is COVID-19?
Human Coronaviruses are common throughout the world. There are many different coronaviruses identified in animals but only a small number of these can cause disease in humans.

On 7 January 2020, ‘Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2’ (SARS-CoV-2) was confirmed as the causative agent of ‘Coronavirus Disease 2019’ or COVID-19. The majority of the case-patients initially identified were dealers and vendors at a seafood, poultry and live wildlife market in China. Since then, the virus has spread to more than 100 countries, including South Africa.
