Covid Antigen Test Kit

Rapid SARS CoV-2 Antigen test

$725.00 $29 per test ( 25 tests in box )

covID RAD rapid antigen test contains 25 test cassettes, buffer solution, swabs, extraction tubes and dropper tips, package insert and quick reference guide for sample collection and results interpretation.  The test may be performed using a nasal (nasopharyngeal) swab .  For Professional Use Only.  For In Vitro Diagnostic Use Only.

Rapid SARS CoV-2 Antigen test

15 Minute Antigen Answers. No Lab Equipment Required.

covID RAD was designed to test patients in 15 minutes or less using the same principles as CLIA waived streptococcus and influenza tests.  After collecting a nasal swab, add six drops of buffer to the extraction tube and insert the patients sample.  Remove the swab after swiringling the sample in the extraction tube with buffer for several seconds.  Place the included dropper tip onto the sample, and add three drops to the sample well of the cassette. Results are ready in 15 minutes.

The Pinnacle covID RAD Rapid Antigen Detection test uses a disposable swab (included) to aid in the detection of novel Coronavirus with 85%¹ sensitivity and ~99%² specificity in 15 minutes or less. Rapid antigen testing has been thought of as the missing link in the fight against Coronavirus, because antibody tests detect active and prior infections. In asymptotic individuals, they may have contracted SARS-CoV2 up to 90 days prior to diagnosis, and are effectively “cured”. With an antigen test, providers can be sure positive results are indicative of a current infection, because once the infection is gone, the antigen disappears.
Antigen advantage

The Antigen Advantage

Covid-19 antibody testing requires viral load time of at least four days to detect an active infection.  When a patient is infected with SARS CoV-2, the  antigen is immediately present and thus immediately detectable using the full-length Spike S1 Subunit RBD Antigen.

85% Sensitivity

Earliest Possible Diagnosis

As with any disease state, early detection is key.   The covID RAD Rapid Antigen Detection test represents the earliest theoretical detection time, in both time to detectability with antigen testing (~1 day), and time to results interpretation at just 15 minutes with covID RAD.

Antigen advantage

Fastest Sampling Time

covID RAD is a lateral flow immunoassay utilizing a nasal or oral sample.  Performing the test is similar to performing a rapid strep or flu test.  After collecting the sample, three drops from the extraction buffer are placed into the sample well.  Results are available in 15 minutes.

The Pinnacle covID RAD antigen test reveals if a person is currently infected with the SARS-CoV-2 pathogen. Once the infection has gone, the antigen disappears. Unlike nucleic acid based tests such as PCR, which detect the presence of genetic material, antigen tests detect proteins or glycans, such as the spike proteins found on the surface of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. covID RAD meets providers needs by affording rapid results, significantly less expensive than PCR tests - with instant results, and can be more amenable to point-of-care use, which could make them more suitable for testing in the community and in remote regions.
