The cotton swab is taken into the test tube, after which 4 drops from the test tube are transferred to the test cassette. The result can be read already after 15 minutes. The result is read as shown in the picture.
How to relate to the result
The Danish Health and Medicines Authority recommends that a positive response is always and as soon as possible followed up with a PCR test, which is even more sensitive. Also remember that negative results do not exclude Covid-19 infection. Negative results must be combined with clinical observations.
