Antigen tests are very specific for the virus, but not as sensitive as molecular tests. This means that a positive result is highly accurate, but a negative result does not rule out infection.
The iHealth COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test was compared to an FDA authorized molecular SARS-CoV-2 test using fresh self-collected or parent/guardian collected anterior nasal swab specimens and healthcare provider collected NP swab specimens. Subjects 2 years or older with or without symptoms participated in this study. The iHealth COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test correctly identified 33 out of 35 (94.3%) of symptomatic positive samples and correctly identified 102 out of 104 (98.1%) of symptomatic negative samples in this study.
