What is a rapid corona antigen test?
A SARS-CoV-2 antigen test is a useful addition to the PCR testing capacities. It can be used to identify the possible acute infection that is relevant to transmission. (RKI)
As with the PCR test, the smear is taken by means of a throat and/or nasal swab (nasopharynx). The sample material is then brought together with antigens in an appropriate solution to detect possible protein building blocks of SARS-CoV-2. The result is obtained after 15-30 minutes.
