SureScreen Diagnostics COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test Cassette (Saliva) is an innovative way to diagnose COVID-19 infections.
The test uses a person’s saliva to identify monoclonal antibodies specific for the Nucleocapsid (N) protein and spike (S) protein of SARS-CoV-2. The cassette will provide a coloured line in the control region if the test has been performed properly. A second coloured line in the test region will then indicate a positive result.
By using an individual’s saliva, the test eliminates the use of a swab making it less invasive and reducing the need for a tester to be within proximity of the patient. The test also removes the need for laboratory screening reducing time and costs.
