Approved Rapid Antigen tests

Approved Rapid Antigen tests

Robust testing strategies are an essential part of being prepared and responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. Whilst the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test remains the ‘gold standard’ for COVID-19 diagnosis, rapid antigen tests/ Lateral Flow tests (LFTs) detect the presence of viral proteins (antigens) and help increase our testing capacity; with a markedly swifter turnaround time for results and no need to be conducted in a clinical setting.
