Acon Flow flex Covid-19 Easy Nose Swab test - Antigen rapid self-test
With this Corona self-test, quick test from ACON , the Flowflex™ SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Rapid Test, you can easily check at home whether you are currently infected and/or contagious with the Corona virus.
Acon's nasal swab rapid test provides a reliable result within 10-15 minutes through a simple nasal swab. With this covid test, the short cotton swab (2.5 cm) that is included does not need to go as deep into the nose as the 'old' nasal swab tests!
This rapid test cassette is new in the Dutch market but has already been approved by the RIVM and reliably detects the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 protein antigen in nasal swabs, which are present when you are infectious with SARS-CoV-2 for your environment. Your infectivity is measurable as early as 1 day before you have symptoms and remains visible for up to 7 days.
Because of the non-invasive sample collection the rapid test is ideal for use with children,
elderly and disabled people. No medical supervision needed! Perfect for home testing and testing in institutions (e.g. companies, schools, catering & events), so work and school activities can be resumed without any worries.
The Acon antigen rapid test is a test that uses the non-invasion method by taking a sample from the front of the nose only. Flowflex™ SARS-CoV-2 represents the qualitative detection of SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid protein antigen using the colloidal gold test principle. This test works with high accuracy due to the affinity between ACE2 receptors and S proteins. In addition, the test is also sensitive to various mutants.
This rapid test indicates within 15 minutes. Subsequently, the test indicates whether there is reason to suspect the presence or infectiousness of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. We advise you to contact your doctor after a positive indication.
Just like Abbott, Roche and Quidel, this Acon coronatest has been validated and approved by the RIVM, validated in Europe and is in possession of a valid CE and TüV certificate. This test also meets the minimum requirements of the RKI and PEI (the German RIVM) and is included in the BfArM list. (The Federal Institute for Medicines and Medical Devices)
