How it works: Looks for specific proteins on the virus’s surface.
Test: Nasal Swab – just inside your nose.
Speed: Results delivered in 10-15 minutes.
Accuracy: Very accurate positive result. Small chance for a “false negative”. After the 6th day of symptoms, this test is less accurate.
When to choose: Symptoms for 5 days or less, need fast results, or prefers less invasive swab.

How it works: Detects the virus genetic material.
