Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Q1: What is PanTEST COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test?

A1: PanTEST COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test is a detection method to identify the existence of the virus itself by detecting specific proteins (i.e. antigens) on the surface of the virus in the sample.

Q2: What is the working principle of the antigen test kit?

A2: The antigen is present on the virus. If SARS-CoV-2 antigen is detected in the body, it means that there is SARS-CoV-2 virus in the body, so the antigen can be used as an indicator for detecting the virus in the body. Antigens can usually be detected in the upper respiratory tract early in the infection.

Q3: Who is suitable for rapid antigen test?

A3: All people are suitable for rapid testing, especially those who are suspected of being infected, such as those who have returned to Hong Kong within 14 days, those who have been in direct or indirect contact with people diagnosed with new coronary pneumonia, those with acute upper respiratory symptoms, fever or pneumonia.

Q4: What is the best sampling time for testing?

A4: It is recommended that the best sampling time is after waking up, brushing teeth, gargle, eating, because the concentration of saliva is the highest, there is enough sample size to ensure the accuracy of the test.

Q5: What should I do if the test result is negative?

A5: The rapid antigen test can only indicate whether the test sample contains antigen. If the virus content in the body is very low and there are no obvious clinical symptoms, the test may give a negative result. It is recommended to test at least once a week to ensure that there is no infection.

Q6: What should I do if the result is positive?

A6: It is recommended to use a brand-new test kit for multiple verifications. If the positive result continues, please contact the Department of Health immediately to arrange a follow-up test for further diagnosis.

Q7: Can the test result be cleared?

A7: Because the rapid antigen test has not been approved by the Hong Kong government as a clinical diagnostic standard, it is temporarily unable to use the test results for customs clearance. This test is suitable for continuous self-monitoring to protect the health of yourself and your family.

Q8: After completing the rapid test, what should I do with the used materials?

A8: Please record the test results and the date of the test first, then wrap and seal the used materials, and then put them in the trash bin together with ordinary household waste. Remember to wash your hands after disposal.

Q9: How should the test samples be stored?

A9: It is recommended to use the sample extraction solution provided in the kit as soon as possible after sampling. If it cannot be processed immediately, the sample should be stored in a dry, sterilized and sealed plastic tube to avoid affecting the test results.
