Characteristics Abbott SARS-CoV-2 RNA Rapid PCR Test
The PCR Rapid Test is sampled with a nasopharyngeal swab and analysed with Abbott’s ID NOW-Platform. ID NOW COVID-19 is a rapid molecular in vitro diagnostic test for the qualitative detection of SARS-CoV-2 in direct nasopharyngeal swabs. It is an automated isothermal nucleic acid amplification technology intended for the qualitative detection of nucleic acid from the SARS-CoV-2 viral RNA.
To perform the assay, the Sample Receiver and Test Base are inserted into the ID NOW Instrument. The sample is added to the Sample Receiver and transferred via the Transfer Cartridge to the Test Base, initiating target amplification. Heating, mixing and detection are provided by the instrument.

Characteristics SARS-CoV-2 Rapid Antigen Test
The SARS-CoV-2 Rapid Antigen Test is a reliable, rapid chromatopgraphic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of specific antigens of SARS-CoV-2 present in the human nasopharynx. This test is an aid in detecting antigen from the SARS-CoV-2 virus in individuals suspected of COVID-19. Similar to laboratory instruments, it detects a SARS-CoV-2 antigen, the nucleoprotein. It can therefore be used to assess whether a person is infected with SARS-CoV-2 by providing a qualitative result showing coloured bands indicating the presence of SARS-CoV-2 antigens.
De SARS-CoV-2 Rapid Antigen Test allows for quick decision-making in order to keep a patient in quarantine so as to limit the risk of further contamination. The test is intended for use in Point of Care settings for symptomatic, as well as asymptomatic patients. The SARS-CoV-2 Rapid Antigen Test enables fast decision making e.g. whether patients need to be put in quarantine, reducing the risk of further spreading. In addition to that it allows for screening of individuals after confirmed exposure to a SARS-CoV-2 infected person or individuals at risk of exposure such as healthcare workers.
