Understanding Covid-19 Testing

The Antigen Test is the fastest and cheapest of all laboratory tests for COVID-19. Unlike the Molecular Test, the genetic material of the virus is not searched, but rather the protein structures on a viral infected cell produced by COVID-19; usually the so-called ‘spike’ protein.

Antigen tests often turn positive after having symptoms for a couple of days. Their use is especially powerful when patients participate in common events, and a quick check should be done to see if participants are infected with COVID-19.

Even during the winter months, when people often have symptoms of the common cold or the flu, running an antigen test will ascertain whether the condition is coronavirus or not.

Molecular Test is the most sensitive test currently available, capable of detecting active infection a few days before the patient is infectious or symptomatic. It is the test of the gold standard; used daily by the National Health Service. Requires a response time of at least 48 hours.
