What is a Covid-19 Antigen PCR Test?

It is important to understand the difference between the two types of Covid-19 tests currently available. The antibody test checks if you have had the coronavirus before and the antigen test checks carried out in our clinic will suggest if you are currently infected with the coronavirus. The Covid-19 antigen test, also known as the PCR test, is a swab test that determines if you are currently infected with Coronavirus. The test looks for the presence of genetic material in the virus called RNA. The swab sample is tested in the lab by adding a reagent solution to it. If the virus is present, the reagent starts a chain reaction and creates thousands of copies of the genetic material, producing enough material to investigate the presence of the virus.

The antigen PCR test:

  • Tests for the presence of the virus in the host
  • Has an optimal testing window of between 2 days prior to symptom onset and 7 days after
  • Can be carried out using nose swabs, throat swabs or saliva
