Colored bands appear at both test line (T) and control line (C). It indicates a positive result for the SARS-CoV-2 antigens in the specimen.
Colored band appear at control line (C) only. It indicates that the concentration of the SARS-CoV-2 antigens does not exist or below the detection limit of the test.
No visible colored band appears at control line after performing the test. The directions may not have been followed correctly or the test may have deteriorated. It is recommended that the specimen be re-tested.
Sensitivity and Specificity
The SARS-CoV-2 Saliva Antigen Rapid Detection Kit was compared with a leading commercial reagent (PCR); the results show that SARS-CoV-2 Saliva Antigen Rapid Detection Kit has high sensitivity and specificity.
