What is Surveillance Testing?
Surveillance testing is primarily used to gain information at a population level, rather than an individual level. Testing is intended for symptomatic individuals within the first seven days of symptom onset. Surveillance for SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) includes ongoing systematic activities, including collection, analysis, and interpretation of health-related data, essential to planning, implementing, and evaluating public health practice. Instructions for Use
How is the test performed?
Easy Rapid Now™ Nasal Antigen test collects a nasopharyngeal specimen on a swab, processes them in a buffer provided with the test, and applies the extracted buffer to the cassette provided with the kit.
The cassette contains tagged antibodies that detect the COVID-19 virus. Results are known within 15 mins.
How often should I conduct COVID-19 surveillance testing?
Most customers test twice a week. Testing at least 2 times per week allows you to detect COVID-19 in its earliest stages of infection with minimal cost and disruption to your school or workplace.
As test results are representative of only the specific time of test, testing frequency is an important consideration for detecting infection. A sporadic testing regimen could lead to undetected infections in a population. Even testing once a week allows you to detect and slow the spread of COVID compared to no testing effort at all.
What does CE certified/WHO approved mean?
These antigen tests are already CE certified for Europe and approved by the World Health Organization. The CE mark indicates that the product may be sold freely in any part of the European Economic Area, regardless of its country of origin. World Health Organization (WHO) is the United Nations agency dedicated to global health and safety.
