Speed Matters

Speed matters in COVID-19 testing. Whether testing one patient during an office visit or 1,000 people at a mass testing venue, efficiency and safety are important.

The Critical Role of
Point-of-Care Antigen

For COVID-19 community surveillance testing, experts urge providers to think beyond sensitivity and consider the overall testing strategy including test frequency, who is tested and whether results are delivered fast enough to prevent spread. In other words, how well does the testing regimen detect infectious people?

Implementing fast, simple point-of-care testing is
a winning strategy for community surveillance

“…if the goal is to identify people who are currently transmitting virus. SARS-CoV-2 is a virus that grows quickly inside the body, so by the time a PCR test becomes positive, the virus is well into exponential growth. At that point, it is probably hours, not days, before the virus grows by orders of magnitude, reaching the detection thresholds of rapid point-of-care tests. It is after this point, when people would have positive results on both tests, that they would be expected to become infectious.”
