Introduction to Coviself Covid-19 Test

The Coviself COVID-19 test contains active components called COVID-19 rapid antigen. It is a diagnostic test used to detect the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which causes COVID-19. Unlike the more commonly known PCR (polymerase chain reaction) tests, which detect the virus's genetic material, it detects specific proteins on the virus's surface. One of the primary advantages of it is its quick turnaround time. Results are typically available within 15-30 minutes. These tests are relatively simple to administer and do not require specialized laboratory equipment. Sometimes, they can be performed by trained healthcare professionals or even self-administered under supervision. These tests are most effective in detecting the virus when an individual has a higher viral load, typically during the early stages of infection and when symptoms are present. This can help identify and isolate infected individuals when they are most contagious.

 The Coviself COVID-19 test is most reliable when administered during the early stages of infection when viral loads are high. Testing too early or too late during illness may result in false-negative results. Their accuracy in detecting the virus may be lower in asymptomatic individuals, especially those with low viral loads. Individuals who have previously tested positive for COVID-19 and have completed their isolation period should not use rapid antigen tests to confirm recovery.  Collecting samples from children, especially using nasopharyngeal swabs, may be challenging and uncomfortable. Special care and attention to proper technique are necessary to ensure reliable results. Coviself Covid-19 tests are generally safe for older adults. However, ensuring the test is administered correctly is important to avoid discomfort or injury. 


Uses of Coviself Covid-19 Test

The Coviself Covid-19 Test is used in the following:

  • Diagnostic testing

Therapeutic Effects of Coviself Covid-19 Test

Coviself Covid-19 Tests are administered via a non-invasive and external route. The typical route of administration involves collecting a respiratory sample from the patient's upper respiratory tract using a swab, such as a nasopharyngeal or nasal swab. This sample is then processed and tested for SARS-CoV-2 viral antigens.
