Kingston Medical provides Antigen Rapid Test (ART) service, which is a diagnostic test to detect the presence of the COVID-19 virus. The test involves collecting a sample from the nose or throat of an individual using a swab, which is then analyzed using a rapid antigen detection test to provide results within 15-30 minutes. Although it is less sensitive compared to the PCR test, the ART has the advantage of providing rapid results. It is also an cost-effective alternative to PCR test. The test results may be used for travel, events or confirmatory testing, however it is important to note that a positive result from an ART test should be confirmed with a PCR test, especially if an individual is showing symptoms of COVID-19.
