Instructions for use
If two colored bands appear with one colored band in the Control Zone (C) and another in the Test Zone (T) within 15-20 minutes, the test result is positive.
Caution: No matter how faint the colored band is in the Test Zone (T), the result should be considered as positive.
If one colored band appears in the Control Zone (C) and no colored band appears in the Test Zone (T) within 15-20 minutes, the test result is negative.
If no color line appears in the control area (C) within 15-20 minutes, the test is invalid. Repeat the test with a new test card.
The control line is an integrated reagent and is used to control the procedure. The control line appears when the test has been performed correctly and the reagents are reactive.
1. How does the detection work?
The N protein of the SARS-CoV-2 virus reacts with the stripe-like coating of the test line and, if present, results in a color change, i.e. a red line appears. Therefore, if the sample does not contain any viral proteins or antigens, there will be no red test line (T).
2. When should/can I test myself?
You can test yourself whether you have symptoms or not. Studies show that earlier testing within the first 4 days of illness typically means a higher viral load, which is easier to detect. Since the test result is a snapshot valid for that point in time, testing should be repeated as recommended by local authorities.
3. What can affect my test result? What should I pay attention to?
Be sure to blow your nose multiple times before collecting the specimen. Be sure to visibly collect sample material (nasal secretions). Perform the test immediately after taking the sample. Follow the instructions for use carefully. Apply the drops of extraction solution only to the sample well (S) Too many or too few drops of extraction solution can lead to an invalid or incorrect test result.
4. The test strip is clearly discolored or smudged? What is the reason for this?
Please note that the test card should not be used with more than 3 drops of sample, as the liquid absorption of the test strip is naturally limited. If the control line does not appear or the test strip is badly smudged or discolored, making it unreadable, please repeat the test according to the instructions.
5. I have taken the test, but I don’t see a control line (C). What should I do?
Your test result is invalid. Observe the answer to question 4 and repeat the test according to the instructions for use.
6. I am unsure about reading the result. What should I do?
For the result to be positive, 2 straight horizontal lines must be clearly visible with the full width of the cassette. If you are still unsure about the results, contact the nearest health facility according to the recommendations of your local authorities.
7. My result is positive. What should I do?
If your result is positive and the test kit thus clearly indicates the control line as well as the test line, you should contact the nearest medical facility as recommended by your local authorities. Your test result may be double-checked and the authority or facility will explain the appropriate next steps.
8. My result is negative. What should I do?
If the test kit only clearly shows the control line, this may mean that you are negative or that the viral load is too low to be detected. If you experience symptoms (headache, fever, migraine, loss of sense of smell or taste, etc.), please consult your primary care physician, or the nearest health care facility as recommended by your local authorities.
If you are not sure, you can repeat the test.
9. How can I dispose of the product?
The test kit may be disposed of with normal household waste in accordance with the applicable local regulations.
