The Antigen Rapid Test for the Direct Detection of SARS-CoV-2.
In our test centres, we currently use antigen rapid tests from WizBiotech.
The necessary swab is taken from the front nasal area (1.5 cm). For this, samples are taken from both nostrils.
The WizBiotech has a sensitivity of 96.3 per cent and a specificity of 100 per cent. Both provide very reliable results after only 15 minutes.
To explain, the specificity is the probability with which a healthy person is also recognized as such. The sensitivity indicates analogously whether a sick person is also recognized as such. We continuously monitor current research and development results and regularly evaluate the use of new tests from previously unused providers.
