The clinical performance of the Novacheck® SARS-CoV-2 Rapid Antigen Test was determined by comparison with a na sopharyngeal RT-PCR assay. Samples were collected within 7 days of symptom onset. The performance of the SARS-CoV-2 Rapid Antigen Test Kit was assessed using 163 nasopharyn geal swabs from patients.
The 3in1 test is designed for professional use and the Home test is designed as a Lay test.
Independent review by the Paul Ehrlich Institute and EURO Surveillance came to a very similar conclusion.
