As per the CDC Regarding Rapid Antigen Covid 19 Testing – Antigen tests are relatively inexpensive, and most can be used at the point of care. Most of the currently authorized tests return results in approximately 15 minutes. Antigen tests for SARS-CoV-2 are generally less sensitive than real-time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) and other nucleic acid amplification tests (NAATs) for detecting the presence of viral nucleic acid. However, RT-PCR can detect levels of viral nucleic acid that cannot be cultured, suggesting that the presence of viral nucleic acid does not always indicate contagiousness.
Proper interpretation of both antigen test results and confirmatory testing when indicated is important for accurate clinical management of patients with suspected COVID-19, or for identification of infected persons when used for screening.
The clinical performance of antigen diagnostic tests largely depends on the circumstances in which they are used. Both antigen tests and NAATs perform best when the person is tested when viral load is generally highest. They also may be informative in diagnostic testing situations in which the person has a known exposure to a person with COVID-19.
