These tests detect a patient’s current COVID status. Proteins produced by coronavirus can be collected via a nasal swab and detected with these tests. The swab is treated with a reagent to make a sample that is analysed with a lateral flow cassette and the result is available in 15 mins. This test is accepted by some countries as part of safe entry. Countries like Japan, Italy and Gran Canaria accept this type of test.
