What are the types of Rapid Test for Covid-19?

Antigen tests

Antigen test by their name mean a procedure to detect or measure specific protein as antigen or antibodies in blood or fluid.

They are taken by swabbing nasal or throat cavity to detect a specific protein (SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid protein) that is part of Coronavirus. Some antigen tests use tester’s saliva to detect the protein. This protein is sought in an infected person as it is the most abundant protein that Covid-19 virus carries. Antigen tests tend to be more effective when tested serially, meaning a person has to take the same test (brand/manufacturer) few times in a single week span. Antigen tests work best when you show symptoms of Covid-19.

What are the potential risks and benefits of Antigen testing?

Accuracy of At-home Covid-19 tests

To date there are 34 At-Home Antigen Diagnostic Tests for SARS-CoV-2 approved by the FDA .  Each with it’s unique attributes on how to achieve a proper diagnostic result and how and where it can be used.

Some go the route of Antigen, some PCR(Polymerase Chain Reaction)-based lab tests, Antigen based tests tend to be rapid tests which give results in matter of 15-30 minutes to an hour, while PCR based take a few days. It all depends on how quick you want the results and what are you willing to pay to get one, as PCR tests tend to run 2x or 3x more than Antigen Rapid Tests.

COVID-19: How to Use “At Home Test” Kits

We’ve been dealing with this pandemic for over a year and a half, and to some people, COVID-19 testing still feels like a complete mystery. People are still confused about where to find a testing facility, which test they should take, and how quickly they can get results.

A few of us are especially on the lookout for an easier and quicker technique to determine if we are virus-free or not. And administering an at-home COVID-19 test appears to be an extremely convenient option — especially given that some rapid testing methods provide speedy results.

Benefits And Advantages of Using “At home Test” Products for Covid-19

Covid-19 has hit the world hard. There is a pattern in the period between every pandemic. Every hundred years, a severe pandemic hits the world and creates havoc.

This time, Covid-19 is the name of the pandemic. To date, Covid-19 has proved to be the fatal pandemic that has killed many people and is still counting. Millions of people have already become its victims.

After a year or so of research, and government help few companies started to introduce at home testing kits.

About At-home Test Products

At-home Covid-19 test products allow a person to self-test to make sure whether they have Covid-19 or not. The sole purpose of inventing at-home test products is to make Covid-19 testing more accessible and faster results so that people can start to live their normal lives.

Autoimmune antibodies that may predict COVID-19 severity

Throughout the pandemic, researchers have determined that the eventual immune response to COVID-19 can do more damage than the initial respirator-related reactions the virus triggers. Now a new study has pinpointed specific antibodies that are associated with some of that damage, potentially providing hospitals with insight to determine how best to treat patients admitted with COVID-19.

Long Covid: Early findings bring hope for diagnostic tests

Scientists say they have detected irregularities in the blood of long Covid patients that could one day pave the way for a test for the condition. Imperial College London researchers found a pattern of rogue antibodies in the blood of a small number of people with long Covid.They hope it could lead to a simple blood test within six to 18 months.
