Rapid Antibody/Antigen Tests
Types of tests
There are different types of tests - diagnostic tests and antibody tests.
The diagnostic tests can show if you have the active COVID-19 virus and whether the steps need to be taken to quarantine or isolate others. The molecular and antigen tests are types of diagnostic tests that can be used to detect COVID-19 active infection. Samples of diagnostic tests are usually collected with a nasal and/or throat swab.
The antibody tests look for antibodies in your immune system that are produced during the transfer of COVID-19. The antibody tests should not be used to diagnose COVID-19 active infection. The antibody development may take several days or weeks and may remain in the blood for several weeks or more after the recovery. The antibody test samples are taken from the patient's blood.
