General Information about COVID-19 Antigen Swab Tests
Rapid response test results are for the identification of the SARS-CoV-2 viral nucleoprotein antigen. These tests are designed for use during the acute phase of infection - about 6 days after exposure to or onset of COVID-19 symptoms. Laboratories are required to report all positive results to the appropriate public health authorities. Individuals who receive a positive result should adhere to their local Public Health guidelines.
Cold Weather Warning
As the weather gets colder in Canada, we understand some customers may be concerned about the sub-zero temperatures during the shipment of Rapid Test Kits. Transport temperatures dipping below 0°C for short durations of time will not have an adverse effect on the test, or the buffer liquid.
Recommendation: It’s important to bring the tests to room temperature before adding the sample into the test, as low ambient temperatures when conducting the test may cause false results. We recommend letting the test kit contents sit out for 4-6 hours before use.
