Rapid Tests

Rapid tests help to reduce the time required to treat patients and enable appropriate care to be prescribed without delay.
 

  • These tests provide results within 10 to 30 minutes, depending on the product used.
  • They help to reduce the time required to treat patients and enable appropriate care to be prescribed without delay.
  • Their low cost and ease of use make them ideal for users without access to a laboratory (emerging countries, government- or NGO-funded mass screening programs, etc.).
  • Rapid tests are also used for screening in physician offices or at the patient’s point of care in hospitals.

The technology
 

  • Rapid tests are manual, based on an antigen-antibody reaction.
