SARS-COV-2 is an acute respiratory infectious disease, and humans are generally susceptible. Currently, the patients infected by SARS-COV-2 are the main source of infection and the disease is spreading rapidly around the world. SARS-COV-2 is especially problematic as the majority of those infected are asymptomatic, meaning that they don’t display symptoms and unknowingly spread the virus around. Based on current epidemiological investigations, SARS-COV-2’s incubation period is 1 to 14 days, with most infections taking hold within 3 to 7 days. The main symptoms of the disease include a new or continuous dry cough, a loss of taste or smell, fatigue, and a temperature or fever.
During the acute phase of the SARS-COV-2 infection, antigens are generally detectable in the upper respiratory tract. Rapid diagnoses of SARS-COV-2will help healthcare professionals treat patients, control the virus more efficiently, and save lives.
The Healgen SARS-COV-2 Antigen assessment is an in vitro immunochromatographic assay for the detection of nucleocapsid protein antigen from SARS-CoV-2 in nasal swab specimens after the swabs have been added to the virtual transport media from individuals who are suspected of having SARS-COV-2. It is intended to aid in the quick diagnosis of the SARS-CoV-2 infection so as to identify positive cases, isolate those who have it, control the virus, and save lives.
