SARS-CoV-2 belongs to the broad family of viruses known as coronaviruses. It is a positive-sense single-stranded RNA (+ssRNA) virus. Other coronaviruses are capable of causing illnesses ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East respiratory syndrome(MERS). People who have confirmed COVID-19 have a range of symptoms, from little to no symptoms to severe illness and death. Most people (about 80%) recover from the disease without needing special treatment. Around 1 out of every 6 people who gets COVID-19 becomes seriously ill and develops difficulty breathing.
COVID-19 Ag immunofiltration Test is our Premium line solution for the detection of SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) in human throat swabs, nasal swabs or nasopharyngeal swabs.
The Rapid Immunofiltration Assay (RIFA) testing provides:
- more than 100 times higher sensitivity when compared to the commonly sold strip test kits and it has proven useful in pre-symptomatic phase
- a signal amplification through enzymatic reaction, which increases sensitivity. The sample flows through a porous membrane and is absorbed by absorbent material. If the sample contains antigen at a detectable level, the antigens will be trapped to the specifically functionalized surface and are enzymatically visualized
- highly sensitive results within 3 minutes after obtaining the nasal swabs. The results can directly be visualized without any need for a device. Two blue dots appear in the positive test and one blue dot appears in the negative test
