Introducing The COVID-19 Antigen Test

COVID-19 has been designated as a global pandemic, and it continues to have devastating effects on the U.S. healthcare system and the world economy. Although vaccination is underway, it’ll take months before inoculation is available to the general public.

Some people with an active COVID-19 infection may be asymptomatic or have very mild symptoms, but they can still spread the virus to vulnerable people. That’s why systematic screening and detection of both clinical and asymptomatic COVID-19 cases is critical.

The CareStart COVID-19 Antigen Test requires a simple nasal swab. After just 10 minutes, the test will reveal if a person is currently infected with the COVID-19 virus. The results of this test may help limit the spread of COVID-19 to your family and others in your community.

After 10 minutes, you can find out if you’re currently fighting a COVID-19 infection, regardless of whether or not you’re symptomatic.

The Antigen Test Vs. The Antibody Test

When you get sick with COVID-19, your body produces infection-fighting antibodies in your blood. The COVID-19
IgM/IgG Rapid Test Kit checks for two kinds of antibodies: IgM and IgG. IgM antibodies develop early in an
infection, and IgG antibodies are more likely to show up later after you’ve already recovered.

The COVID-19 Antigen Test is designed to detect proteins from the virus that causes COVID-19, and it can tell if a
person is actively infected. Antigen tests are very specific for the virus, but not as sensitive as molecular tests.
This means that a positive result is highly accurate, but a negative result does not rule out infection.

The Antigen Test Vs. The Antibody Test

With the CareStart COVID-19 Antigen Test from AccessBio, you’ll get your
test results in just 10 minutes. Here’s what each result means:
The Antigen Test Vs. The Antibody Test

  • Positive

    SARS-CoV-2 antigen present does not rule out co-infection with other pathogens. The color intensity in the test region will vary depending on the amount of SARS-CoV-2 antigen present in the sample. Any faint colored line(s) in the test region(s) should be considered as positive.

  • Negative

    Negative test results do not preclude infection and should not be used as the sole basis for treatment or other patient management decisions, including infection control decisions. It is recommended that these results be confirmed by a molecular testing method.

  • Invalid

    In the event of an invalid test result, it’s recommended to re-run the test one time using the remaining specimen in the extraction vial. If the test re-run is also invalid, it is recommended that these results be confirmed by a molecular testing method.

What Is An Emergency Use Authorization (EUA)?

According to the FDA, an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) is a mechanism to facilitate the availability and use of medical countermeasures, including vaccines, during public health emergencies, such as the current COVID-19 pandemic.

Under an Emergency Use Authorization, the FDA may allow the use of unapproved medical products, or unapproved uses of approved medical products in an emergency to diagnose, treat, or prevent serious or life-threatening diseases.

You Can Help Slow The Spread Of COVID-19
By Taking The Following Precautions:

    Clean your hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds or a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.

    Avoid close contact with people who are sick and isolate for 14 days if you’ve been exposed to COVID-19.

    Put distance between yourself and other people (at least 6 feet, or 2 arms’ length) when in public places.

    Wear a face mask over your mouth and nose when in public; it’s a sign of respect for the people around you.

    Always cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash and disinfect your hands.

    Regularly monitor your body for COVID-19

    Regularly monitor your body for COVID-19 symptoms and follow CDC guidance if symptoms develop.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is COVID-19?

    COVID-19 is caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus which is a new virus in humans causing a contagious respiratory illness. COVID-19 can present with a mild to severe illness, altho...ugh some people infected with COVID-19 may have no symptoms at all. Older adults and people of any age who have underlying medical conditions have a higher risk of severe illness from COVID-19. Serious outcomes of COVID-19 include hospitalization and death. The SARS-CoV-2 virus can be spread to others not just while one is sick, but even before a person shows signs or symptoms of being sick (e.g., fever, coughing, difficulty breathing, etc.).

  • What is the CareStart COVID-19 Antigen test?

    The CareStart COVID-19 Antigen is a type of test called an antigen test. Antigen tests are designed to detect proteins from the virus that causes COVID-19 in nasopharyngeal ...swabs.

  • What does it mean if I have a positive test result?

    If you have a positive test result, it is very likely that you have COVID-19 because proteins from the virus that causes COVID-19 were found in your sample. Therefore, it is... also likely that you may be placed in isolation to avoid spreading the virus to others. You should follow CDC guidance to reduce the potential transmission of disease. There is a very small chance that this test can give a positive result that is wrong (a false positive result) particularly when used in a population without many cases of COVID-19 infection. Your healthcare provider will work with you to determine how best to care for you based on the test results along with medical history, and your symptoms.

  • What does it mean if I have a negative test result?

    A negative test result means that proteins from the virus that causes COVID-19 were not found in your sample. However, it is possible for this test to give a negative result... that is incorrect (false negative) in some people with COVID-19. This means that you could possibly still have COVID- 19 even though the test is negative. If your test result is negative, your healthcare provider will consider the test result together with all other aspects of your medical history (such as symptoms, possible exposures, and geographical location of places you have recently traveled) in deciding how to care for you. The amount of antigen in a sample may decrease the longer you have symptoms of infection. Specimens collected after you have had symptoms for more than five days may be more likely to be negative compared to a molecular assay. It is important that you work with your healthcare provider to help you understand the next steps you should take.

  • Is this test FDA-approved or cleared?

    No. This test is not yet approved or cleared by the United States FDA. When there are no FDA-approved or cleared tests available, and other criteria are met, FDA can make te...sts available under an emergency access mechanism called an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA). The EUA for this test is supported by the Secretary of Health and Human Service’s (HHS’s) declaration that circumstances exist to justify the emergency use of in vitro diagnostics for the detection and/or diagnosis of the virus that causes COVID-19. This EUA will remain in effect (meaning this test can be used) for the duration of the COVID-19 declaration justifying emergency of IVDs, unless it is terminated or revoked by FDA (after which the test may no longer be used).

  • What are the differences between antigen tests and other COVID-19 tests?

    There are different kinds of tests for diagnosing COVID-19. Molecular tests (also known as PCR tests) detect genetic material from the virus. Antigen tests detect proteins f...rom the virus. Antigen tests are very specific for the virus, but they are not as sensitive as molecular tests. This means that a positive result is highly accurate, but a negative result does not rule out infection.

  • Where can I go for updates and more information?

    The most up-to-date information on COVID-19 is available at the CDC General webpage: https://www.cdc.gov/COVID19. I...n addition, please also contact your healthcare provider with any questions/concerns.
