Collection is a painless process. You will be asked to tilt your head back while a swab is inserted into your nostril. The swab will be gently rotated for 15 seconds before being placed into a tube for laboratory testing.
The Antigen test is not as sensitive or specific, and can only be used on symptomatic patients. There is a risk of false positives with this test.
The Antibody test will show if you have been exposed to COVID-19 but at this time cannot be used as a measure of protection against infection.
