SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Swab Test Kit
NOVAtest ® SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Swab Test kits are CE marked for both home use and professional use, which are intended to detect Sars-CoV-2 virus in human body before symptoms appear, thus help to diagnose the infection of Sars-Cov-2 virus and control the epidemic of the COVID-19 disease.
SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Swab Test
NOVAtest ® SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Rapid throat/nasal swab test kit is an rapid immunoassay kit based on Colloidal Gold Immunochromatography principle, which uses the double antibody sandwich method to detect the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) antigen in the specimen from human throat or nasal swab. The test kits are intended to detect COVID-19 virus before symptoms appear, thus help in the diagnosis of COVID-19 infection, and help to control the epidemic of COVID-19 virus.
Sars-Cov-2 Antigen Test for Home Use
Our NOVA test ® Sars-Cov-2 antigen rapid test kits are CE certified for self-testing use, which are easy to use; no extra reagent is needed; the result is easily read visually; the interpretation of the result is easy and simple; result can be obtained within 15 minutes. Because of these characters, this SARS-COV-2 Antigen test kit can be used as a point-of-care screening kit. And actually, a layman can easily perform this rapid test device. CE certificate for our antigen test kits for home use can be checked here:
With the improvement of the test kits, especially with the improvement of the sensitivity, the specimen collect points are not restricted to the inner organs like nasopharynx cavity. Anterior nasal swab and Oropharyngeal Swab can also be used. This makes the collection of specimen much easier. After reading the leaflet carefully, and if the assay procedures in the instruction leaflet can be followed strictly, the test can be totally used as self-testing device.
Easy Testing Procedures
Like any rapid test kit, the testing procedures of SARS-COV-2 Antigen Swab rapid test are easy to perform. Before taking out the testing though, it is advisable to carefully read the kit instructions and strictly follow it.
1. Collect the specimen with a swab.
2. Treat the specimen with extraction diluents.
3. Unpack the foil pouch, take out the cassette and lay it on a flat platform.
4. Turn upside down the dropper prepared from step 2, dispense 3 drops of specimen solution (70-80µL) into the sample well.
5. Place the cassette at room temperature for 15 minutes, and read the result.
SARS-COV-2 antigen Test Kit with CE Mark
NOVAtest ® SARS-COV-2 antigen swab test kit are CE marked for professional market in EU countries; and this antigen swab rapid test kit has been approved by German authority BfArM to sell to the self-testing market [NOVA Test ® SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Schnelltestkit
(Kolloidale Gold Immunchromatographie) Certificate No.: 5640-S-122/21]. Single test kit and 5-in test kit are available from stock.
Variants and SARS-COV-2 Antigen Test
Three variants of Sars-Cov-2 virus have been found.
Variant P.1 contains 17 unique amino acid changes, three deletions, four synonymous mutations, and one 4nt insertion. Three of these mutations are of known biological importance: K417T, E484K, and N501Y.
VOC1 and VOC2 both contain multiple nucleotide changes across the genome which result in amino acid substitutions and other changes in different proteins. These include a large number of changes in the spike protein and a lesser number in the nucleocapsid protein.
The target antigen of our SARS-Cov-2 Antigen swab test and saliva test kits are the nucleocapsid protein, where there is little change. The antibody-antigen reaction works well with the variants. Therefore our products can detect the three above mentioned variants of Sars-Cov-2 virus.
