Fast and free follow-ups with our medical team
These tests are very accurate, with a sensitivity of over 90%. If you test positive, please follow your local public health guidelines and verify results with a PCR test.
How does it work?
The rapid response COVID-19 antigen test kits we sell detect the presence of SARS-CoV-2 viral nucleoprotein antigens in nasal and nasopharyngeal secretions. The presence and amount of these will indicate if you are infected.
These tests must be taken in room temperature conditions (15 – 30 C). There are instructions with each kit and two methods of collection: an anterior nasal swab and a nasopharyngeal swab. The anterior is a more shallow swab inside the nose, and is a simpler and less uncomfortable method of collection.

Can I re-use the tests?
Tests are a one-time use only, but there are 25 tests in each screening kit and 20 in Boson’s.
Can it detect the Omicron variant?
It is currently unknown if these kits can conclusively detect the Omicron variant. The BTNX Rapid Response COVID-19 Antigen Test Device is being analyzed to see if it can detect the Omicron variant of these proteins: based on preliminary analysis, they anticipate that it will be detectable with their kits. To see further results as their tests continue and information evolves, you can visit their site at www.btnx.com.
Can I use these results for travel?
What tests are accepted by which countries varies per country: you should always check their specific requirements first before traveling. Often a lab-based PCR test is required.
